Transliteration is the mapping of a word or text written in one writing system into another writing system. Transliteration maps the letters of the source language to the letters in the target language for a specific pair of source and target language. Transliteration must preserve sound. Transliteration can be used for encryption also. Here the source language is English and the target language is Malayalam. In some cases the letters in the source script may not match exactly with the target language. Transliteration usually defines some conventions for dealing with that. The source string is segmented in to transliteration units and related with the target language units. Thus transliteration problem can be viewed as a sequence labeling problem. Here the classification is done using Support Vector Machine (SVM).
