Module:Mong-translit

This module will transliterate text in the Mongolian script. It is used to transliterate Buryat, Classical Mongolian, Daur, Mongolian, Sanskrit, Dukhan, Classical Tibetan, Middle Mongol, and Khamnigan Mongol. 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:Mong-translit/testcases.

Functions edit
