I completely forgot we already had the excellent transliteration gadget <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Gadget-SimpleTransliterate.js> by Ebraminio <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:Ebraminio>. Just made a rough patch <https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Gadget-SimpleTransliterate.js&diff=203702222&oldid=155995810> to make it work with the new UI. Enjoy!

What would you do with the many, many Chinese place names in Wikidata where we
have nothing but Chinese ? It is completely useless to me in this way. A good
transliterations works for me. Like most people beyond that I do not care much
about it being "official" or sourced.
Decent automatic translitteration is fine I think. Automatic word-for-word
*translation* however seems rather problematic.
