SIL Converters (Experimental)
Current version: 3.1, released October, 2009
This package provides tools through which you can change the encoding, font, and/or script of text in Microsoft Word documents, XML documents, and SFM text and lexicon documents. It also installs a system-wide repository to manage your encoding converters and transliterators (TECkit, CC, ICU, Perl, or Python based, as well as support for adding custom transduction engines). For developers, it provides a simple COM interface to select and use a converter from the repository. It is easy to use from VBA, C++, C#, Perl, Python or any .NET/COM enabled language. This package is fully integrated with SIL FieldWorks, AdaptIt, and the forthcoming SpeechAnalyzer software, providing the same system-wide registry of installed and available encoding converters for all of these user programs. Additionally the package includes some extra utilities such as a clipboard converter for manipulating text between cut and paste operations.
