Automatic translation and transliteration of ukrainian names into Russian and English + some extra tools to deal with mixed languages, etc

Project description


That’s a small tool to generate as many possible transliteration options for ukrainian names First it translates the name into russian using dictionary, then transliterates ukrainian and russian names using translit-ua package and 19 different transliteration tables. Finally, some heuristic is applied to cover usual usual trasnliterations for well known names, which aren’t covered by the transliteration tables


Install from PyPI.

$ pip install names_translator


>>> from names_translator import Transliterator
>>> tr = Transliterator()
>>> tr.transliterate("Чаплинський", "Дмитро", "Олександрович")
