This plugin creates commands for converting from and to Russian translit using utf-8 encoding. For example, to write "Чебурашка", write "Cheburashka" or "CHeburashka", select the word and execute command ":Torus v" .

This plugin creates two commands: Torussian and Fromrussian.

:[range]Torussian [v]
    convert from translit (latin alphabet) to Russian (utf-8)

:[range]Fromrussian [v]
    convert from Russian (utf-8) to translit

These can be used as follows (commands can be abbreviated):

    Convert current line.

    Convert lines in Visual range. Any other range can be specified, for example :%Torus will convert entire buffer.

:Torus v
:'<,'>Torus v
    Convert text in Visual area. If a range is specified, it is ignored.

If you don't like my transliteration version, edit s:table_ru.

It is easy to add converters for other alphabets. First, create conversion table:
    let s:table_greek = [ ..... ]

And then add new commands:
    com! -range -nargs=? Togreek   call s:Translit_Converter(<line1>,<line2>, 'table_greek', 0,1, <q-args>)
    com! -range -nargs=? Fromgreek call s:Translit_Converter(<line1>,<line2>, 'table_greek', 1,0, <q-args>)
