Simplyf replacing characters.

I am building flow that takes responses from microsoft forms and use them to create new Azure AD user. My standard user name is name.surname@company.com. The problem is that we are using those funny ą, ę, ś, ż, ź and ć letters in poland. They cannot be used in email. I've made it work but i have a feeling there is simpler way then this:

first two are tolower(name) tolower(surname)

third is concat('imie','.','na')

and than i replace each of the strange caracters ą to a, ę to e etc.

 

Is it possible to do it in a simpler way?

ReplaceChars is a compose action which has the following expression:

replace(replace(replace(replace(replace(concat(toLower(outputs('Name')), '.', toLower(outputs('Surname'))), 'ą', 'a'), 'ę','e'), 'ś', 's'), 'ż', 'z'), 'ź', 'z')

The output of the compose in the example above is:
