This is a follow-up for #1842718: Use new Transliteration functionality in core for machine names, which in turn is a follow-up task for #567832: Transliteration in core.

I think this should be a task because D8 brings a lot of multilingual enhancements but file handling still not woking in some cases causing to use File (Field) Paths which simply adds origname column to file_managed table

the starter issue #1842718-10: Use new Transliteration functionality in core for machine names already has some starting code, but without changing schema it's no go

Component:transliteration system» file system

I think this is not really a Transliteration issue, but a File Entity issue. I don't think anything needs to change in the Transliteration system for this to happen. It's about the File entity storing both the original and transliterated file name, right?

...I guess yes.

Another reason to store original file name is that drupal can change uploaded name for security reasons
