OK. As I supposed, Romanian variant have more
It is possible to solve that. First, with a lot of exceptions, then
with smaller number of exceptions, but with dictionary.
And, it is interesting computational linguistic work :)

The difference is that while Romanian uses both î and â to represent
the same sound, in Moldovan both of these are spelled î. Thus, "O,
brad frumos este un cântec de Crăciun închinat pomului de Crăciun.
Cântecul a fost tradus în multe limbi ale lumii şi este răspândit la
nivel mondial." is "O, brad frumos este un cîntec de Crăciun închinat
pomului de Crăciun. Cîntecul a fost tradus în multe limbi ale lumii şi
este răspîndit la nivel mondial."
Other than that the differences are very minimal, and they include the
Moldovan preference to use native words or Russian loanwords rather
than the Romanian preference for French and Italian words.
Cyrillic, however, is written very phonetically.
You asked earlier about the difficulties in orthographical conversion
between Cyrillic and Latin.
The letter i can be и, й or ь in Cyrillic, it depends on its pronunciation.
The combination iu can be written in Cyrillic as ию, ью, ю, йю.
The combination ia can be written in Cyrillic as иа, ьа, йа, ия, ья,
or йя, but on its own the Cyrillic letter "я" is translitereated
in Latin (for example, the name of the popular song "Dragostea Din
Tei" is Драгостя Дин Тей in Cyrillic.)
