In a Notes document such as a mail message, Notes can transliterate text written in one Hindi script (plus Roman) into another Hindi script (plus Roman). In other words, it can change text from one Hindi script to another.
To allow Lotus Notes to transliterate Indic languages, follow these steps:
- Edit your Notes.ini file (a file located in your Notes folder) and add the line:
- Optional: Once the above line is entered in the Notes.ini file, it creates a menu of scripts to choose from. The default scripts are Devanagari and Tamil. However, you can override the default and choose other scripts by adding a second line to the Notes.ini:
then entering any if the following script names, separated by commas: Devangari, Tamil, Roman, Bengali, Gurmukhi, Gujarati, Oriya, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
Save the Notes.ini file.
In the document, select the text to be transliterated.
Press F12 to open the menu next to the cursor.
Click the script you want the text transliterated into.
- Example: Adding IndicXlitScript=Bengali, Gurmukhi would mean you could transliterate any Indic script only into Bengali and Gurmukhi (not Devangari or Tamil). Please refer to the latest release notes for the most up-to-date list of supported scripts.
