Applications

Character conversion

Romanization (latinisation)
Conversion of a text written in a non-Roman alphabet into Roman alphabet.
Transliteration
Writing down a text (or a word) written in one alphabet with letters of another alphabet.
Cyrillization
Conversion of a text written in a non-Cyrillic alphabet into Cyrillic alphabet.
Transcription (phonetics, phonemics, phonemic orthography)
Writing down phonemes of a spoken language, so that you can reproduce them later. Also, you may write down phonemes of one language using letters of another.
Other
Simple substitution cipher (e.g. ROT13, ROT47).
Morse code conversion.

Remove diacritics (accents)

wReplace is an excellent tool for national characters conversion into standard set of ASCII characters. This is useful because many programs do not correctly display non-ASCII national characters; for example, programs which display film subtitles sometimes have this problem. The change/replacement is run according to a pattern (“Diacritic to ASCII”) available in the program and may look like this:

Ě → E
Ą → A
Ł → L
ß → ss
etc.
Problem with national characters in film subtitles
No cóż, mogę powiedzieć
"kamera mnie kocha"!
No coz, moge powiedziec
"kamera mnie kocha"!
