    Default phonetic to cyrillic converter

    Hello forum! I've been working on adding Russian support to my game, and I feel that I should share my code for converting phonetic Russian into Cyrillic. Example: Privjet Rossii --> Привет России. So far I have added Phonetic String --> Cyrillic String, Int Array --> Cyrillic String, and I'm working on KeyCode --> Cyrillic char. (for typing ingame) I feel that this little program will make programming in Russian alot easier.

    Here are a few examples on how to use it:

    russianConverterr rt = new russianConverter();
    String phoneticExample = rt.enToRuSTR("Privjet Rossii"); //convert  Privjet Rossii to  Привет России
    int sample = {0,1,2,3};
    String intArrayExample = rt.enToRuINT(sample);  //convert {0,1,2,3} to АБВГ
    String unicodes[] = rc.getAllCyrillicUni(); //returns all cyrillic unicodes.

    Even if you don't use this, realize how long it took me to add all Cyrillic Unicodes!

    PLEASE NOTE: The returned strings contain unicodes which will show up as "?" in terminal/CMD, but will work fine for everything else.

    Here is the code:
    public class russianConverter {
    	String returnMessage;
    	int i;
    	String[] ruAlpha = {
    	public String[] getAllCyrillicUni(){
    		return ruAlpha;
    	public String enToRuINT(int[] message){
    		returnMessage= "";
    			returnMessage += ruAlpha[message[i]];
    		return returnMessage;
    	public String enToRuSTR(String message){
    		return message
