In the following query, the characters 'T' and 'h' are replaced with 'S' and 'p'. The character 'T' occurs twice in the from_string, but only the replacement character in the to_string that corresponds to the first occurrence of 'T' is used. That is, only 'S' is used to replace 'T'. Next, the character 'k' is replaced with 'x', and the extra characters 'y' and 'z' in the to_string are ignored. The resulting string is 'Spin and Spicx'.

   SELECT OTRANSLATE('Thin and Thick', 'ThTk', 'Sptxyz');
