Some of you have heard of the liblouis braille translator and 
back-translator library. You can now download the source from . It is on the downloads page, along with a lot of other 
goodies. liblouis performs translation and back-translation of 
contracted braille. It handles 16-bit Unicode natively, and is designed 
to work with many languages. It is based on the translation routines in 
BRLTTy, but has been much modified. There are Makefiles for both Linux 
and Mac OS X. see the README file for details.

If anyone makes a Windows DLL for liblouis, I'll put that up too, with 
credit, of course.
