Converts data between encoding formats

ParaTExt Lexicon Extraction Tool

No votes yet

Utility that extracts the word forms, morphemes and their glosses from the lexicon.xml file generated by the project interlinearizer in ParaTExt and converts them into a Standard Format file that can then be imported into a Fieldworks database.

The glosses can be in more than one writing system, but the receiving Fieldworks project must already be configured for those writing sytems before the import is begun. 

If the resulting SFM file is importing data into an Fieldworks database that already has data, then the possibility of having duplicate headwords is very likely.

RTF2SFM

RTF2SFM converts a styled Word .RTF file to UTF8-encoded SFM. Unlike the old SF Converter package, RTF2SFM correctly handles Unicode characters.

RTF2SFM is part of the SIL::RTF Perl module that provides an event-driven parser for examining or processing RTF files. The program is supplied either as a Perl module (requiring Perl 5.8 or later) or as a standalone Windows .EXE file.

TECkit

SUMMARY:  (Text Encoding Conversion kit)  A toolkit for converting plain-text files from one encoding to another (e.g. Legacy to Unicode).

DETAILS:  TECkit is a low-level toolkit intended to be used by other applications that need to perform encoding conversions (e.g., when importing legacy data into a Unicode-based application). The primary component of the TECkit package is therefore a library that performs conversions; this is the "TECkit engine." The engine relies on mapping tables in a specific binary format (for which documentation is available); there is a compiler that creates such tables from a human-readable mapping description (a simple text file).
