Transliteration is the process of replacing the characters in one language with the corresponding phonetically equivalent characters of the other language. India is a language diversified country where people speak and understand many languages but does not know the script of some of these languages. Transliteration plays a major role in such cases. Transliteration has been a supporting tool in machine translation and cross language information retrieval systems as most of the proper nouns are out of vocabulary words. In this paper, a sequence learning method for transliterating named entities from Tamil to Hindi is proposed. Through this approach, accuracy obtained is encouraging. This transliteration system can be embedded with Tamil to Hindi machine translation system in future. © 2012 ICST Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.
