Python String translate() Method with example



Hello dear readers! Welcome back to another edition of our tutorial on Python. In this tutorial guide, we are going to be studying about the Python String translate() method.

Python string translate() method returns a copy of the string in which all the characters have been translated using a table that is (constructed with the maketrans() method in the string module), optionally deleting all characters found in the string deletechars.

Syntax

The following below is the syntax for the Python String translate() method -

str.translate(table[,  deletechars] );

RECOMMENDED POST: Python String rjust() Method 

Parameter Details

  • table - Maketrans() helper function can be used in the string module to create the translation table.
  • deletechars - This is the list of characters to be removed from the source string.

Return Value

Returns a translated copy of the string.

Example 1

The following below is a simple example. Under this every vowel in the string is replaced by its vowel position -

#!/usr/bin/python

from string import maketrans   # Required to call maketrans function.

intab = "aeiou"
outtab = "12345"
trantab = maketrans(intab, outtab)

str = "this is string example....wow!!!";
print str.translate(trantab)

Output
Below is the output of the above example -

th3s 3s str3ng 2x1mpl2....w4w!!!

Example 2
The following is the example to delete 'x' and 'm' characters from the string -

#!/usr/bin/python

from string import maketrans   # Required to call maketrans function.

intab = "aeiou"
outtab = "12345"
trantab = maketrans(intab, outtab)

str = "this is string example....wow!!!";
print str.translate(trantab, 'xm')

Output
Below is the output of the above example -

th3s 3s str3ng 21pl2....w4w!!!
