Module:my-translit

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This module will transliterate Burmese language text per the MLCTS scheme.

The module should preferably not be called directly from templates or other modules. To use it from a template, use {{xlit}}. Within a module, use Module:languages#Language:transliterate.

For testcases, see Module:my-translit/testcases.

Functions[edit]

tr(text, lang, sc)
Transliterates a given piece of text written in the script specified by sc, and language specified by lang. When the transliteration fails, returns nil.

local symbols = {
	["၀"] = "0", ["၁"] = "1", ["၂"] = "2", ["၃"] = "3", ["၄"] = "4", 
	["၅"] = "5", ["၆"] = "6", ["၇"] = "7", ["၈"] = "8", ["၉"] = "9", 
	["၊"] = "|", ["။"] = "||"
}
