Converts strings from many languages of the world to a standard set of characters (Universal Coded Character Set, UCS).

This is a phonetic operation where the tTransliterate component attempts to create in UCS an equivalent of the original string based on the sounds the string represents.

tTransliterate encodes text expressed in many of the world's writing systems to readable characters based on the repertoire of the Unicode Standard. This makes it easier for you to recognize and interpret words from different languages than if the letters are left in the original script. For further information about Unicode and Unicode Standard, check Unicode and Unicode Standard.

In local mode, Apache Spark 2.4.0 and later versions are supported.

This component is not shipped with your Talend Studio by default. You need to install it using the Feature Manager. For more information, see Installing features using the Feature Manager.
