Transliteration is a process of converting the text of a language from one script to another. Using this tool even those who are not familiar with the original script can read the texts in the script they know.
The transliteration system is designed to convert any major Indian script any other major Indian scripts. Such as Assamese, Bengali, Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Kannada, Malayalam, Meetei Mayek, Odia, Tamil and Telugu scripts. The application also supports the conversion of these major Indian scripts to International Phonetic Alphabet, ISO-15919 Roman Schema and Roman scripts. The application follows the source script convention while rendering the target script. In order to keep the transliteration reversible, Cue-codes are used, to retain the source script exclusive letters. Yet user can opt-out from rendering the cue-code as per their discretion by unchecking “Keep it Reversible”.
The application saves time and laborious work of data entry and proof reading when same content is needed to be used in different script. The transliteration application caters to language learning and multi-script languages. It is implemented by the Centre for e-Governance, Department of Personnel & Administrative Reforms (e-Governance), Government of Karnataka.
