This module will transliterate text in the Runic script in Proto-Norse (gmq-pro), Old English (ang) and Old Norse (non).

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:Runr-translit/testcases.


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.
The language code is necessary because some letters are transliterated slightly differently depending on the language.
