# Text Transformation

Transformation.Text is a system that performs string transformations using examples allowing for many tasks involving strings to be performed automatically. Transformation.Text is based on the same research as the FlashFill feature in Excel, but with extended capabilities for semantic transformations involving dates and numbers as well as support for interactivity due to being part of PROSE. The Usage page and the Transformation.Text sample project show examples of how to use the Transformation.Text API.
