# Latinizer

**A string-translating module responsible for getting rid of diacritical signs in strings**

## Installation

Available in [Hex](

The package can be installed by adding `latinizer` to your list of dependencies in `mix.exs`:

def deps do
  [{:latinizer, "~> 0.4.0"}]

## Usage

The lib allows one to transcribe and remove diacritics from strings containing characters used in most of the European languages (e.g. Polish, Russian, Swedish, French etc.) to string containing only latin letters. The most common usage is as follows:

iex> Latinizer.latinize "Pchnij w tę łódź jeża lub ośm skrzyń fig."
"Pchnij w te lodz jeza lub osm skrzyn fig."

iex>  Latinizer.latinize "Pchnij w tę łódź jeża lub ośm skrzyń fig.", only: ["ż", "ę"]    
"Pchnij w te łódź jeza lub ośm skrzyń fig."

iex> Latinizer.latinize "В начале было Слово, и Слово было у Бога, и Слово было Бог."
"V nachale bylo Slovo, i Slovo bylo u Boga, i Slovo bylo Bog."
