Transcription of Ladino

At the #Wikimania hacking days, in a corner, Can Evrensel was happily working on a project that intends to transcribe Ladino from the Latin script to the Hebrew script and transliterate Ladino to the different orthographies it is known for.

As Ladino is written in different ways, it is wonderful to learn that research is done to see if it is possible to represent Ladino in ways that are familiar to the people who know the language. Research like this invigorates a language, it gives it a lease of life.
