||This extension allows you to transliterate text in non-latin characters (such
as Chinese, Cyrillic, Greek etc) to latin characters. Besides the
transliteration the extension also contains filters to upper- and lowercase
latin, cyrillic and greek, and perform special forms of transliteration such
as converting ligatures such as the Norwegian "æ" to "ae" and normalizing
punctuation and spacing.
Initial release, supported transliteration filters include: Cyrillic-to-Latin
transliteration, Greek-to-Latin transliteration, Han-to-Latin transliteration,
Hebrew-to-Latin transliteration; case converting filters for Greek, Latin and
Cyrillic and filters to remove diacriticals from text, normalizing ligatures
and normalizing punctuation.
