Greeklish to Greek Converter (ILSP)

Screenshot

Source:

tar jxvf greeklish2greek.tar.bz2
cd greeklish2greek
python greeklish2greek.py

you need pygtk, gtk, libglade and python-libglade and internet connection.

Windows users:

To get all the above (expert from internet connection :P) start from http://pygtk.org/downloads.html

UPDATE: You can also use this web service (limit is 5000 characters which should be enough)

  1. Hi Nikos !

    Judged by the picture , your Greeklish to Greek Converter seems to be somewhat near to what I am looking for. [ i need a converter to and fro Greek script]

    I have already installed GTK+Runtime. But how can I get the greeklish2greek thing to my Windows XP ?

    thank you

    Ole

  2. Hi Nikos,

    I get: “ImportError: could not import pango
    ImportError: could not import pango
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “greeklish2greek.py”, line 21, in ?
    File “gtk\__init__.pyc”, line 113, in ?
    AttributeError: ‘module’ object has no attribute ‘Font'”

    what do I have to do next ?

    thank you for your attention,

    Ole

  3. I have installed everything and i too get the

    ImportError: could not import pango
    ImportError: could not import pango
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “greeklish2greek.py”, line 21, in ?
    File “gtk\__init__.pyc”, line 113, in ?
    AttributeError: ‘module’ object has no attribute ‘Font’

  4. That’s one of the reasons I don’t like Linux. You download a program and you have to install 35 more packages in order to get the bloody thing started.. Cursed dependencies..

  5. hi
    i have installed python 2.3 in order to install pywin32-210.win32-py2.3
    i installed python 2.4 in order to install pygtk-2.10.1-1.win32-py2.4
    i intalled python 2.5 (why not )
    intalled also the gtk-2.10.11-win32-1

    but it doesnt works i still get the error:

    ImportError: could not import pango
    ImportError: could not import pango
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “greeklish2greek.py”, line 21, in ?
    File “gtk\__init__.pyc”, line 113, in ?
    AttributeError: ‘module’ object has no attribute ‘Font’

    i am working on windows xp

  6. Hi. Why don’t you use our service which is free and does the job quickly? Use the WSDL instead and create any program u want with greeklish to greek support. More info… click on my website link.

  7. Yes there are some words that surely need some revisions. I am planning a big upgrade in the next months and i hope it will take less than a day to implement since some sites use the service already. Thanks for the feedback by the way :)

  8. I really think ILSP does spell check or possibly grammar check on the greek produced and that would be a start or this is what I would do. But this app I just did it because I don’t like limits. Greeklish for me is not a problem and in general it’s not something of a top priority anymore (eventhough a tool that would allow me to write greeklish and type greek for me would be more than handy but needs much work and I would never use it since tonos and the rest are needed and sometimes you don’t know if xero is ξέρω or ξερό).
