In the following query, the characters 'T' and 'h' are replaced with 'S' and 'p', resulting in the string 'Spin and Spick'. Next, the extra character 'k' in the from_string (where there is no corresponding character in the to_string) is removed from the source_string. The resulting string is 'Spin and Spic'.

   SELECT OTRANSLATE('Thin and Thick', 'Thk', 'Sp');
