Site search for non-English characters

We’re creating a website for a Maltese company and they require search. I’ve noticed that the fuzzy search doesn’t bring back results for “Ħuta” if it is spelt as “Huta”. I understand that this is technically a different word and that Elastic Search won’t have a pair for those two, but it is very likely that the users won’t be using the Maltese characters when typing in their search.

Is there any solution to this besides having transliterated versions of all the indexed text?
