Project Description

python-romkan

python-romkan is a Romaji/Kana conversion library for Python, which is used to convert a Japanese Romaji (ローマ字) string to a Japanese Kana (仮名) string or vice versa.

It is the Pythonic port of Ruby/Romkan, originally authored by Satoru Takabayashi and ported by Masato Hagiwara.

python-romkan works on Python 2 and Python 3 (fully tested on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and PyPy). It handles both Katakana (片仮名) and Hiragana (平仮名) with the Hepburn (ヘボン式) romanization system, as well as the modern Kunrei-shiki (訓令式) romanization system.
