# Convert input string contain font in list

## Convert input string contain font in list

Contents

Problem Description:

I want to convert a input text "🅐🅟🅟🅛🅔" contain in the font list "original":

``````text = input("Enter text: ")

#Enter text: 🅐🅟🅟🅛🅔

original = ["🅐🅑🅒🅓🅔🅕🅖🅗🅘🅙🅚🅛🅜🅝🅞🅟🅠🅡🅢🅣🅤🅥🅦🅧🅨🅩",
"𝓐𝓑𝓒𝓓𝓔𝓕𝓖𝓗𝓘𝓙𝓚𝓛𝓜𝓝𝓞𝓟𝓠𝓡𝓢𝓣𝓤𝓥𝓦𝓧𝓨𝓩𝓪𝓫𝓬𝓭𝓮𝓯𝓰𝓱𝓲𝓳𝓴𝓵𝓶𝓷𝓸𝓹𝓺𝓻𝓼𝓽𝓾𝓿𝔀𝔁𝔂𝔃0123456789",

"ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"]

replace = ["ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"]

originalMap = original[0]
replaceMap = replace[0]
result = ""
for i in text:
if i in originalMap:
result += replaceMap[originalMap.index(i)]

else:
result += i

print("Converted: " +result)
``````

#Converted: APPLE

But I can’t convert with another font in the list "original" such as 𝓐𝓟𝓟𝓛𝓔, 𝘈𝘗𝘗𝘓𝘌, …

Could anyone help me on this?

## Solution – 1

You need to add all the possible mappings in one structure, from each letter of the 4 fonts to the classic one

Use a dict for that. And give 4 times the mapping: one font > classic font, that will make a dict of 62*4=248 mappings

``````text = "A🅟🅟𝓛🅔!𝟢𝟣𝟤"

original = ["🅐🅑🅒🅓🅔🅕🅖🅗🅘🅙🅚🅛🅜🅝🅞🅟🅠🅡🅢🅣🅤🅥🅦🅧🅨🅩",
"𝓐𝓑𝓒𝓓𝓔𝓕𝓖𝓗𝓘𝓙𝓚𝓛𝓜𝓝𝓞𝓟𝓠𝓡𝓢𝓣𝓤𝓥𝓦𝓧𝓨𝓩𝓪𝓫𝓬𝓭𝓮𝓯𝓰𝓱𝓲𝓳𝓴𝓵𝓶𝓷𝓸𝓹𝓺𝓻𝓼𝓽𝓾𝓿𝔀𝔁𝔂𝔃0123456789",
"𝘈𝘉𝘊𝘋𝘌𝘍𝘎𝘏𝘐𝘑𝘒𝘓𝘔𝘕𝘖𝘗𝘘𝘙𝘚𝘛𝘜𝘝𝘞𝘟𝘠𝘡𝘢𝘣𝘤𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘨𝘩𝘪𝘫𝘬𝘭𝘮𝘯𝘰𝘱𝘲𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘷𝘸𝘹𝘺𝘻𝟢𝟣𝟤𝟥𝟦𝟧𝟨𝟩𝟪𝟫",
"ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"]
replaceAlphabet = "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"

originalMap = {}
for alphabet in original:
originalMap.update(dict(zip(alphabet, replaceAlphabet)))
``````

Then for the use, use `dict.get`, it’ll search for the value in the dict, if it don’t find it it’ll use the default value, set `char` too for the default value => pick the corresponding value OR use the key itself

``````result = "".join(originalMap.get(char, char) for char in text)

print("Converted: " + result)
# Converted: APPLE!012
``````

## Solution – 2

You can use the `str.translate` function to replace characters:

``````original = ["🅐🅑🅒🅓🅔🅕🅖🅗🅘🅙🅚🅛🅜🅝🅞🅟🅠🅡🅢🅣🅤🅥🅦🅧🅨🅩",
"𝓐𝓑𝓒𝓓𝓔𝓕𝓖𝓗𝓘𝓙𝓚𝓛𝓜𝓝𝓞𝓟𝓠𝓡𝓢𝓣𝓤𝓥𝓦𝓧𝓨𝓩𝓪𝓫𝓬𝓭𝓮𝓯𝓰𝓱𝓲𝓳𝓴𝓵𝓶𝓷𝓸𝓹𝓺𝓻𝓼𝓽𝓾𝓿𝔀𝔁𝔂𝔃0123456789",
"𝘈𝘉𝘊𝘋𝘌𝘍𝘎𝘏𝘐𝘑𝘒𝘓𝘔𝘕𝘖𝘗𝘘𝘙𝘚𝘛𝘜𝘝𝘞𝘟𝘠𝘡𝘢𝘣𝘤𝘥𝘦𝘧𝘨𝘩𝘪𝘫𝘬𝘭𝘮𝘯𝘰𝘱𝘲𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘷𝘸𝘹𝘺𝘻𝟢𝟣𝟤𝟥𝟦𝟧𝟨𝟩𝟪𝟫",
"ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"]

# This can just be a string, no need for it to be a list of strings
replace = "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789"

# Create a mapping from char codes to the replacment
mapping = {ord(char):replace[index] for font in original for index,char in enumerate(font)}

# Use the translate method to modify each character according to the map
print("Converted:", input().translate(mapping))
``````

See the documentation to learn more about `str.translate`

## Solution – 3

I think you’re hoping to convert the input to each of three different fonts. In which case:

``````original = "🅐🅑🅒🅓🅔🅕🅖🅗🅘🅙🅚🅛🅜🅝🅞🅟🅠🅡🅢🅣🅤🅥🅦🅧🅨🅩"

alternative = [
"𝓐𝓑𝓒𝓓𝓔𝓕𝓖𝓗𝓘𝓙𝓚𝓛𝓜𝓝𝓞𝓟𝓠𝓡𝓢𝓣𝓤𝓥𝓦𝓧𝓨𝓩",
"𝘈𝘉𝘊𝘋𝘌𝘍𝘎𝘏𝘐𝘑𝘒𝘓𝘔𝘕𝘖𝘗𝘘𝘙𝘚𝘛𝘜𝘝𝘞𝘟𝘠𝘡",
"ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ"
]

text = '🅐🅟🅟🅛🅔'

for a in alternative:
t = ''
for c in text:
if (i := original.find(c)) >= 0:
t += a[i]
else:
t += c
print(t)
``````

Output:

``````𝓐𝓟𝓟𝓛𝓔
𝘈𝘗𝘗𝘓𝘌
APPLE
``````
