Replace some characters in string


I have working POS application which prints receipt directly to POS printer using ESCAPE codes to format receipt.
Now, some printers doesn't support my local language code and instead some letters i am receving garbage on print.

For Example: "This is sa&es Da*t$"...

The question is, how can i search whole string and replace certain characters (&,*,$) with (l,e,s).

I know of String.Replace but is there way to do this in one pass of the string?

Thank you.

This works

"This is sa&es Da*t$".Replace("&","l").Replace("*","e").Replace("$","s")

Not unless you nest the Replaces...and that's technically not one pass.
