TECkit Downloads

Here is where the current version of TECkit can be obtained.

New version 2.5.1, released 7 April 2008

This release updates the supported character repertoire to Unicode 5.1, for purposes of character name lookup in the compiler, and Unicode normalization support. There are also a couple of minor bug-fixes. Otherwise, the software is functionally identical to earlier releases, and the updated libraries should work with existing applications.

The TECkit package is copyright ©2002-2008 SIL International. It is being made available as free software but without any warranty; see the  license for more information.

Source code

The source code for TECkit is available via the Subversion repository at  http://scripts.sil.org/svn-public/teckit/TRUNK/. An archive of the sources used for release 2.5.1 can be downloaded from  http://scripts.sil.org/svn-view/teckit/TAGS/TECkit_2_5_1.tar.gz. The code is expected to compile and run on typical Unix/Linux systems using standard ./configure && make && make install commands.

Perl Bundle

For users of Perl 5.8 on Linux and Windows, or Perl 5.10 on Windows, there are bundles that will install the binary module without the need for compilation. Unpack the .zip file and run perl Install.PL and the module will be installed if newer than that you have installed.

Encore2Unicode utility

Encore2Unicode is a command-line utility for Windows that can examine a font built using the Encore font system and create a draft TECkit mapping table for converting data using that font to (and back from) Unicode.

Note that Encore2Unicode will not work with any other fonts than those built using the Encore font system, version 3. It is also important to note that the mapping tables created are only drafts, and must be carefully reviewed before being entrusted with important data.

Further information is in the zip file or self-extracting archive available below, together with the utility itself and a set of data files that it requires.

Microsoft Word support

SILConverters 4.0
This package provides tools through which you can change the encoding, font, and/or script of text in Microsoft Word and other Office documents, XML documents, and SFM text and lexicon documents. It also installs a system-wide repository to manage your encoding converters and transliterators (TECkit, CC, ICU, Perl, or Python-based, as well as support for adding custom transduction engines).
