Description Douglas Thrift 2009-10-23 07:30:05 UTC
It often happens that you have non-Roman text data in Unicode, but
you can't display it -- usually because you're trying to show it
to a user via an application that doesn't support Unicode, or
because the fonts you need aren't accessible. You could represent
the Unicode characters as "???????" or "\15BA\15A0\1610...", but
that's nearly useless to the user who actually wants to read what
the text says.

What Unidecode provides is a function, 'unidecode(...)' that
takes Unicode data and tries to represent it in ASCII characters
(i.e., the universally displayable characters between 0x00 and 0x7F).
The representation is almost always an attempt at *transliteration*
-- i.e., conveying, in Roman letters, the pronunciation expressed by
the text in some other writing system. (See the example above)

This is a Python port of the Text::Unidecode Perl module by
Sean M. Burke <sburke@cpan.org>.
