Latinize.js

Simple library to convert accents (diacritics) from strings to latin characters.

Install

npm install latinize

or

bower install latinize

Usage

node.js

var latinize = require('latinize');
latinize('ỆᶍǍᶆṔƚÉ áéíóúýčďěňřšťžů'); // => 'ExAmPlE aeiouycdenrstzu'

AMD

require(['latinize'], function(latinize){
  latinize('ỆᶍǍᶆṔƚÉ áéíóúýčďěňřšťžů');
});

browser

<script src="../latinize.js"></script>
<script>
    document.write(latinize('ỆᶍǍᶆṔƚÉ áéíóúýčďěňřšťžů'));
</script>

You can use the latinize.characters object to access the translation table or to change the mapping:

latinize.characters['Ω'] = 'O';

// modify the behavior for German umlauts
_.extend(latinize.characters,
  {'Ä': 'Ae', 'Ä': 'Ae', 'Ü': 'Ue', 'ä': 'ae', 'ö': 'oe', 'ü': 'ue'});
