I want to transliterate (not translate!) text from arbitrary (as far as possible) languages to English in an Android app. Is there a built-in way?
I've found but it doesn't seem to be available by default (at least the IDE doesn't find it). Do I simply need to add this code, as suggested by the comment in Where can I get a JAR to import libcore.io??
Alternately, I could add ICU4J to dependencies and follow icu4j cyrillic to latin. But this is a very large dependency (though Proguard should help).
Finally, I could easily add transliteration from Cyrillic myself and wait until/if someone actually needs other languages (with obvious drawbacks).
