Thanks, this pointed me in the right direction:

$ type tr
tr is /usr/ucb/tr
$ echo QWERTZUIOPLKJHGFDSAYXCVBNM | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'
qwertzuioplkjhgfdsayxcvbnm
$ echo QWERTZUIOPLKJHGFDSAYXCVBNM | /usr/xpg4/bin/tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'
QWERTaUIOPLKJHGFDSAYXCVBNM


Questions? Yes!

Eureka! export LC_ALL=C solved my problem.
