Module:Cprt-translit

This module will transliterate text in the Cypriot script. It is used to transliterate Ancient Greek.

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:Cprt-translit/testcases.

FunctionsEdit
