Its can be installed and use via NuGet:

Package Manager
Install-Package Dakov.Transliterator
dotnet add package Dakov.Transliterator

How to use it

We should include the library after the installation.

using Dakov.Transliterator;

Code snippets show how to call the methods.

var cyrillicText = "Съученичките Мария и Дияна скачаха с бънджи.";

var options1 = new TransliterationOption
    TransliterationRuleset = TransliterationRuleset.Basic,
    UrlCompatibility = false,
    WordSeparator = '-',

// If we miss the TransliterationOption param we will use the default values.
// We can see it in the example above "option1".
var latinText0 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(cyrillicText);
// The result is : Sauchenichkite Mariya i Diyana skachaha s bandzhi.

var latinText1 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(cyrillicText, options1);
// The result is : Sauchenichkite Mariya i Diyana skachaha s bandzhi.

var options2 = new TransliterationOption
    TransliterationRuleset = TransliterationRuleset.Bulgarian,

var latinText2 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(cyrillicText, options2);
// The result is : Sauchenichkite Maria i Diyana skachaha s bandzhi.
// One of the differences between the Basic and Bulgarian rule set you can see in the name "Мария".
// According to the Article 5(2) of the Transliteration Law.

var options3 = new TransliterationOption
    TransliterationRuleset = TransliterationRuleset.Bulgarian,
    UrlCompatibility = true,

var latinText3 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(cyrillicText, options3);
// The result is : sauchenichkite-maria-i-diyana-skachaha-s-bandzhi

var options4 = new TransliterationOption
    TransliterationRuleset = TransliterationRuleset.Bulgarian,
    UrlCompatibility = true,
    WordSeparator = '_',

var latinText4 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(cyrillicText, options4);
// The result is : sauchenichkite_maria_i_diyana_skachaha_s_bandzhi

var listOfCyrillicTexts = new List<string>()
    "Съученичките Мария и Дияна скачаха с бънджи.",
    "Полета от високо е опасен и вдига адреналина.",
    "На следващият ден двете момичета разказаха на приятелите си."

var listOfCyrillicTexts0 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(listOfCyrillicTexts);
// The result is :
// - Sauchenichkite Mariya i Diyana skachaha s bandzhi.
// - Poleta ot visoko e opasen i vdiga adrenalina.
// - Na sledvashtiyat den dvete momicheta razkazaha na priyatelite si.

var listOfCyrillicTexts1 = Transliterator.CyrillicToLatin(listOfCyrillicTexts, options1);
// The result is :
// - Sauchenichkite Mariya i Diyana skachaha s bandzhi.
// - Poleta ot visoko e opasen i vdiga adrenalina.
// - Na sledvashtiyat den dvete momicheta razkazaha na priyatelite si.

// The similar description is valid and for the methods LatinToCyrillic

var latinText = "Sauchenichkite Mariya i Diyana skachaha s bandzhi.";
var cyrillicText = Transliterator.LatinToCyrillic(latinText);
// The result is : Саученичките Мария и Дияна скачаха с банджи.
// But in transliteration via Basic ruleset from Latin to Cyrillic have small percentage inaccuracies.
