Transliteration API

Hi, I am trying to use Microsoft transliteration API, but according to my requirement I need to support global as well as local languages. I have been trying to use the API and I could see that English is not supported here. Also can we only transliterate from global languages (mentioned in getLanguages) to Latin only? Is there a way I can do it for other languages including English. Kindly let me know.

    @Dipika Chowdhary If you are looking to transliterate script from non-Latin to Latin format then the response from the API would be in English i.e Latin script. The language support page displays the To/From indicator which means the script from Latin to Non-Latin is also possible. Here is an example for both the cases:

    Hi->En i.e Deva->Latn


    En->Hi i.e Latn->Deva


    I hope this helps clarify the usage of the API.

    If this answer helps, please feel free to accept the same as answer. Thanks!!
