Transliteration from Telugu to English using java



The below example shows transliteration from Telugu to English using java.

Use Case: It can be useful to generate tags for Asian languages.

I have used IBM's International Component for Unicode for Java API.

package com.khalil.samples;

import com.ibm.icu.text.Transliterator;

public class TransliterationExample {
	public static void main(String... args) {
		final String TEL_TO_ENG = "Telugu-En";
		String teluguWord = "నమస్కారము ";
		Transliterator toEnglish = Transliterator.getInstance(TEL_TO_ENG);
		String out = toEnglish.transliterate(teluguWord);
		System.out.println(teluguWord + "  > " + out);


నమస్కారము > namaskāramu

Similarly, you can transliterate to any other language by changing the language code mentioned in line number5 in the above program.
