    8. 8. What is transliteration? Transliteration refers to the method of mapping from one system of writing to another based on phonetic similarity. It means that you type words in Roman letters (e.g. a, b, c etc.), and are converted to words that have similar pronunciation in the target language (eg Hindi).
    9. 9. For Example would return This is my House X Therefore one would have to type the word as it is spoken as shown below ye mera ghar hai . would return √
    10. 10. How do I use Microsoft ILIT to type in Hindi? 1.Open the application in which you would like to enter Hindi text. 2.Change the language to Hindi using the language bar, which typically appears in the taskbar as follows. 3.The language bar will now show “HI” and the " " symbol to indicate that Hindi is the current language. 4.You can now start typing in English. Whatever you type automatically gets transliterated into Hindi after a word-breaking character like a space, comma, etc. is entered.
    11. 11. While you are typing the Hindi word in English, Microsoft ILIT presents you a list of transliteration options on the fly You can select any of the five options shown or can alternatively select the English word itself. If you would like to change a word that is already transliterated, you can do so by right-clicking the word and then selecting an option from the list.
    12. 12. How does Microsoft ILIT handle numbers? Microsoft ILIT returns the international numerals as the first option and the Hindi numerals as the second. For example, typing “ followed by “ ". " gives “ " How does Microsoft ILIT handle punctuation? Since Hindi uses the Danda (i.e. the vertical bar, ) to denote the full stop, Microsoft ILIT automatically converts the full stop into a Danda.
