libkkc - Japanese Kana Kanji conversion library

Build Status Coverage Status

What's this?

libkkc provides a converter from Kana-string to Kana-Kanji-mixed-string. It was named after kkc.el in GNU Emacs, a simple Kana Kanji converter, while libkkc tries to convert sentences in a bit more complex way using N-gram language models.
