ConfigEntity based lists with items containing non-ascii characters are not sorted correctly

Many efforts have been made to make Drupal 8 a great multilingual system. However, content types are never properly sorted when translations contain accentuated characters.

Content types are sorted using asort. Maybe we could set the locale beforehand.

Steps to reproduce

Install Drupal 8
Enable the following modules

  • Configuration Translation
  • Content Translation
  • Interface Translation
  • Language

Add a language (French in the example)
Add a two content types (Show and Zone)
Translate the Show content type to ร‰mission
Switch languages (fr/admin/structure/types)

Expected behavior

To have a list in this order

  • Article
  • Basic page
  • ร‰mission
  • Zone

What happened instead

List was in this order:

  • Article
  • Basic page
  • Zone
  • ร‰mission

Proposed resolution

Use PHP Collator class to sort the items with a fallback when PHP intl extension is not installed

Remaining tasks

User interface changes

API changes

Data model changes

  • Needs framework manager review

    It is used to alert the framework manager core committer(s) that an issue significantly impacts (or has the potential to impact) multiple subsystems or represents a significant change or addition in architecture or public APIs, and their signoff is needed (see the governance policy draft for more information). If an issue significantly impacts only one subsystem, use Needs subsystem maintainer review instead, and make sure the issue component is set to the correct subsystem.
