Transliterate Cyrillic → Latin in every possible way

This is the port of the incredible python library iuliia made by @nalgeon

GoDoc Go codecov Go Report

Transliteration means representing Cyrillic data (mainly names and geographic locations) with Latin letters. It is used for international passports, visas, green cards, driving licenses, mail and goods delivery etc.

Iuliia makes transliteration as easy as:

import iuliia "github.com/mehanizm/iuliia-go"

func main() {
    translated := iuliia.Wikipedia.Translate("Юлия Щеглова")

>> 'Yuliya Shcheglova'

Why use Iuliia

  • 20 transliteration schemas (rule sets), including all main international and Russian standards.
  • Correctly implements not only the base mapping, but all the special rules for letter combinations and word endings (AFAIK, Iuliia is the only library which does so).
  • Simple API and zero third-party dependencies.


go get github.com/mehanizm/iuliia-go

schemas folder is the git submodule from general repository. You can add schemes manually and use generation to generate all code and tests:

go generate

CLI interface

In the folder cmd you can find CLI app to play with the transliteration.

# run the app with help
./iuliia -h
> Usage of ./iuliia:
>   -schema string
>         choose schema name (default "wikipedia")
>   -show
>         showing list of the schemas

# simple run the program
> type phrase to translate with schema wikipedia:
> 'quit' to exit or 'help' to get help
> > 

# show help
> help
>> * show - to show all schemas
>> * change schema_name - to change schema
>> * quit - to quit the program
