Quick Start

First, import the Kawazu namespace by:

using Kawazu;

Then initiate the converter:

var converter = new KawazuConverter();

Finally you will get the result by:

var result = await converter.Convert("今晩は", To.Romaji, Mode.Okurigana, RomajiSystem.Hepburn, "(", ")");

For the “Convert” method is an async method, you probably need to make the outer method async too:

private static async Task Main(string[] args)
    // Your code ...
    var converter = new KawazuConverter();
    var result = await converter.Convert("今晩は", To.Romaji, Mode.Okurigana, RomajiSystem.Hepburn, "(", ")");
    // Your code ...
