Python function that uses a word as the encryption key, rather than an integer
Reading this code I get little bit confused.

- why you import alphabet_position and then define function with same name?
- why you ask two times for letter?
- is it typo or functions rotate is not indented?

Instead of writing dictionary manually one can let Python create it:

alphabet_pos = {}

for i, v in enumerate(zip(range(65, 91), range(97, 123))):
    alphabet_pos.update({**dict.fromkeys([chr(v[0]), chr(v[1])], i)})
It is also not clear what function vigenere_cipher should accomplish.
I'm not 'in'-sane. Indeed, I am so far 'out' of sane that you appear a tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity. Bucky Katt, Get Fuzzy
