Sanzang is a compact and simple cross-platform machine translation system. It is especially useful for translating from the CJK languages (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), and it is very suitable for working with ancient and otherwise difficult texts. Unlike most other machine translation systems, Sanzang is small and approachable. Any user can develop his or her own translation rules, and these rules are simply stored in a text file and applied at runtime.
Cjklib provides language routines related to Han characters (characters based on Chinese characters named Hanzi, Kanji, Hanja, and chu Han respectively) used in writing of the Chinese, the Japanese, infrequently the Korean, and formerly the Vietnamese languages. Functionality is included for character pronunciations, radicals, glyph components, stroke decomposition, and variant information.
