As-you-type phonetic conversion of text from one alphabet to another, as well as transliteration/detransliteration of selected text anywhere within documents. Supports multiple languages and custom transliteration schemes.
About this Add-on
Choose Tools -> Transliterator in the menu to select your alphabet or mapping of choice, then hit F2 and start typing. A blue border around the input area will indicate that translit mode is active.
Select transliterated text in an email or web page, hit Ctrl+Shift+Q, and change it to native alphabet for easy reading.
Transliterator is compatible with Firefox, Thunderbird, Seamonkey, Blue Griffon and Instantbird.
Attention Thunderbird Users!
Starting with Thunderbird 12, F2 is a built-in shortcut for renaming folders or attachments. The new version of transliterator offers an option to override built-in shortcuts, however we recommend that you instead choose a different hot key for enabling translit mode. Go to Tools -> Transliterator Options in the menu, click in the appropriate text box and hit your preferred hot key. Then click OK
