A dead-simple hiragana and katakana romanization library

Project description

A dead-simple hiragana and katakana romanization library for Python 2.7 and 3.4+.

By default, romanization is performed according to ISO 3602 Strict (Nihon-shiki) with long vowels expanded (e.g., ou or oo instead of ô):

>>> from __future__ import unicode_literals
>>> import waapuro
>>> waapuro.romanize('とおりゃんせ')
'tooryanse'

Passing the hepburnish option replaces some of the individual kana romanizations with more Hepburn-like variants:

>>> waapuro.romanize('あいづち')
'aiduti'
>>> waapuro.romanize('あいづち', hepburnish=True)
'aizuchi'

To install, just use:

$ pip install waapuro

Report bugs and make feature requests on Waapuro’s GitHub project page.
