My goal is to create a program that takes an input of Tibetan Uchen Script and outputs the Romanized Wylie translation. The research I have done for existing ones didn't turn up much info on what languages were used and how they were programmed.
I did get a clue fro one site that mentioned parsing using Ruby. Upon further research, I came across something called Regexp, that I assume is a function within Ruby.
I am utterly new to programming. The last time I did any programming was in high school in 1985, and it was writing simple For Next Loops in basic. Am I on the right track? Do I need to incorporate other languages? I assume I need to build a database, if so which software to use?
I hope I explained enough and asked the right question, if not, feel free to supplement.
Thank you for your time.
