Rōmaji Converter

November 2015 • JavaScript • finished

A JavaScript application that converts between three Japanese writing systems: Hiragana, Katakana and Rōmaji (the latin alphabet). Though intended for converting from rōmaji (based on the Hepburn system), it can actually convert from any writing system to the other two!

This isn't a true transcription, of course, in the sense that it's oblivious to Japanese grammar and many of Hepburn's special cases. It's still good for some casual conversion, though.

I'm surprised it works as well as it does, though I'm sure there's still a handful of bugs in there.
