Module:Mtei-translit

This module will transliterate text in the Meitei Mayek script. It is used to transliterate Manipuri and Old Manipuri.

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:Mtei-translit/testcases.

FunctionsEdit

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