Translate ASCII text into readable non-ASCII text


Use deasciiify to translate ASCII text into readable non-ASCII text. It was created for the purpose of test data generation to detect unicode bugs and to use as a fake language on a webpage to simulate how foreign languages can break webpage layouts and whatnot. The output is deterministic to make automated testing easier.

Installation

$ pip install deasciiify

Usage

>>> from deasciiify import deasciiify
>>> print(deasciiify('The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.'))
