Classes and functions for performing pseudo-localization on strings.

Project description

Python module for performing pseudo-localization on strings. Tested against Python 2, Python3, PyPy and PyPy3.

Dependencies

This package has the following external dependencies:

  • six - for Python 2 to 3 compatibility

PseudoL10nUtil class

Class for pseudo-localizing strings. The class currently has the following members:

  • transforms - field that contains the list of transforms to apply to the string. Default is [transliterate_diacritic, pad_length, square_brackets]
  • pseudolocalize(s) - method that returns a new string where the transforms to the input string s have been applied.

pseudol10nutil.transforms module

The following transforms are currently available:

  • transliterate_diacritic - Takes the input string and returns a copy with diacritics added e.g. Hello -> Ȟêĺĺø.
  • transliterate_circled - Takes the input string and returns a copy with circled versions of the letters e.g. Hello -> 🅗ⓔⓛⓛⓞ
  • transliterate_fullwidth - Takes the input string and returns a copy with the letters converted to their fullwidth counterparts e.g. Hello -> Hello
  • pad_length - Appends a series of characters to the end of the input string to increase the string length per IBM Globalization Design Guideline A3: UI Expansion.
  • angle_brackets - Surrounds the input string with ‘《’ and ‘》’ characters.
  • curly_brackets - Surrounds the input string with ‘❴’ and ‘❵’ characters.
  • square_brackets - Surrounds the input string with ‘⟦’ and ‘⟧’ characters.

Example usage

Python 3 example:

>>> from pseudol10nutil import PseudoL10nUtil
>>> util = PseudoL10nUtil()
>>> s = u"The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
>>> util.pseudolocalize(s)
'⟦Ťȟê ʠüıċǩ ƀȓøẁñ ƒøẋ ǰüɱƥš øṽêȓ ťȟê ĺàźÿ đøğ.﹎ЍאdžᾏⅧ㈴㋹퓛ﺏ𝟘🚦﹎ЍאdžᾏⅧ㈴㋹퓛ﺏ𝟘🚦﹎Ѝא⟧'
>>> import pseudolocalize.transforms
>>> util.transforms = [pseudol10nutil.transforms.transliterate_fullwidth, pseudol10nutil.transforms.curly_brackets]
>>> util.pseudolocalize(s)
'❴The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.❵'
>>> util.transforms = [pseudol10nutil.transforms.transliterate_circled, pseudol10nutil.transforms.pad_length, pseudol10nutil.transforms.angle_brackets]
>>> util.pseudolocalize(s)
'《🅣ⓗⓔ ⓠⓤⓘⓒⓚ ⓑⓡⓞⓦⓝ ⓕⓞⓧ ⓙⓤⓜⓟⓢ ⓞⓥⓔⓡ ⓣⓗⓔ ⓛⓐⓩⓨ ⓓⓞⓖ.﹎ЍאdžᾏⅧ㈴㋹퓛ﺏ𝟘🚦﹎ЍאdžᾏⅧ㈴㋹퓛ﺏ𝟘🚦﹎Ѝא》'
