Text-Unidecode
==============

text-unidecode is the most basic port of the
`Text::Unidecode <http://search.cpan.org/~sburke/Text-Unidecode-0.04/lib/Text/Unidecode.pm>`_
Perl library.

There are other Python ports of Text::Unidecode (unidecode_
and isounidecode_). unidecode_ is GPL; isounidecode_ doesn't support
Python 3 and uses too much memory.

This port is licensed under `Artistic License`_ and supports both
Python 2.x and 3.x. If you're OK with GPL, use unidecode_ (it has
better memory usage and better transliteration quality).
