I have developed a free tool to convert Hindi Devanagari text into Roman Hindi (i.e. Hindi text written with English letters). But at times you need a tool that can do just opposite of this.

Today a friend of mine asked me if there is a tool available that can convert Roman Hindi (i.e. Hindi language written using Roman characters) into Devanagari script? In the world of Hindi typing, in addition to Hindi font conversion, it is one of the most frequently asked questions. I always type directly in Devanagari Hindi –so I never felt the need of any such tool. But if you have received a lot of Roman Hindi text and you want to convert it into Devanagari –you will definitely wish for an automated software tool. And if it could be free, wouldn’t it be great?!

At first, I thought that such a tool may not exist because there is no popular standard for typing Roman Hindi. Everyone types the way they are used to with (for example main, mein, ma, me –they all are possible Roman spellings for a single Devanagari word!)

But there is actually a good tool available for this work. However, it is as good as your Roman Hindi!

TechWelkin transliteration tool is good at converting roman English text into Devanagari Hindi. Because there is no standard for writing roman Hindi, the tool may makes mistakes if you provide it with a really badly written piece of roman Hindi text. But in most cases it makes a good conversion.

You can simply copy the roman English text and paste it into the TechWelkin transliteration tool. The tool will gradually convert the script. Once automated conversion is over, you may have to make necessary corrections manually.

    Please help me to load a programme that will convert Roman script to Devnagri. Also, if possible to write a sentence in English, and this can translate into Hindi.

    Roman Hindi to Devanagari /Regional transliteration

    Hello Lalit ji,

    India needs standard Roman Alphabet with built in transliteration scheme to all languages for I-Phone keyboards.

    Each consonant produces these 15 sounds when combined with vowels.
