Here's a situation: you have a bunch of MP3s of Russian (or Cyrillic in general) songs that you decided to drag-and-drop add to your iTunes library. No problem with that, except every once in awhile you end up with songs/artists/albums named using "birds language" instead of proper Cyrillic letters.
I have once in the past stumbled onto a small AppleScript solution that fixed that, but I was unable to trace it down again. I have, therefore, decided to "scratch this particular itch" and build one myself.
Here's a fruit of that labor.
A few caveats:
- It worked on a sample of songs I had, can't promise it would work always.
- At this point it only fixes Russian letters, not Cyrillic ones at large.
- The change is irreversible: you cannot undo the action!
