ITRANS Transliteration Scheme

Commonly used Codes for
Transliteration of Sanskrit, Tamil and Telugu Scripts into
Roman Script

Traditionally, transliteration of Sanskrit Literature has been done using lower case English alphabets with diacritical marks, in accordance with a scheme adopted at the International Congress of Orientalists at Athens in 1912. For most scholars in Oriental languages, this is still the true and convenient Transliteration format.

ITRANS (I-ndian languages TRANS-literation) is a recent development which uses computer editors to generate texts in different languages using the regular "qwert" keyboard. A single master-file can be generated with English alphabets using ITRANS scheme and converted into texts of multiple Indian Languages.

The tables below show the traditional Transliteration scheme with diacritical marks as well as the ITRANS scheme followed in these pages for the stotraa-s .
