Unicode To CP932 Transcoder

Project description

UCP9 - Unicode To CP932 Transcoder

A small python package which helps transcode cp932-incompatible kanji characters to their cp932-compatible equivalents

This module provides a transcoding service:

  • FROM: An arbitrary unicode character.
  • TO: A cp932-compatible, semantically similar but differently encoded version of the same character.


    import ucp9
    ucp9.convert(string, option)

[string]: a string that contains cp932-incompatible characters

[option]: Option to handle cp932-inconvertible characters.

  • "keep": keep the cp932-inconvertible characters. NOTE: the return string WON'T be cp932-compatible.
  • "remove": remove the cp932-inconvertible characters.
  • "replace": (Default behaviour) replace the cp932-inconvertible characters with "?"

Currently supported unicode character blocks:

  • [x] Kangxi Radicals
  • [x] Print Standard Character
  • [x] Old type
  • [x] CJK Radicals Supplement
  • [x] Katakana Phonetic Extensions
  • [x] CJK Unified Ideographs
  • [x] CJK Compatibility Ideographs
  • [x] CJK Compatibility Ideographs Supplements


  • cp932-incompatible: characters which cannot encode to cp932 using string.encode(), but could potentially have equivalent cp932-encodable versions of themselves.
  • cp932-inconvertible: characters which cannot encode to cp932, and doesn't have a cp932-encodable version.
