I have a project to deal with Persian materials. I have already uses Google Translate API to translate. Now I am looking for an API to transliterate /Romanize (NOT Translate) Persian to English (not English to Persian). In other words, I have Persian in, and English out.
There is a Romanization table (Persian romanization table - Library of Congress<http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/romanization/persian.pdf> www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/romanization/persian.pdf<http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/romanization/persian.pdf>).
For example, If
كتاب should output as Kitāb
My finding is that existing tools only do the opposite
1. Google Transliterate: you enter English, output Persian (Input “Bookmark”, output “بوکمارک “, Input “بوکمارک “, output “بوکمارک “)
2. OCLC language: the same as Google Transliterate.
3. http://mylanguages.org/persian_romanization.php : works, but no API.
Anyone know such API exists?
