TranslateCharacters is used to substitute characters in the subject string with characters in the To string, using characters in the From string as a key. Whenever a character in the subject string matches a character in the From string it will be replaced with the equivalent character in the To string.
In this example, if #String contained "ABCCBA", the result would be "CBAABC""
#String2 := #String.TranslateCharacters( "ABC", "CBA"' )
