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.

@DipikaChowdhary-1746 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

https://api.cognitive.microsofttranslator.com/transliterate?api-version=3.0&language=hi&fromScript=Deva&toScript=Latn

En->Hi i.e Latn->Deva

https://api.cognitive.microsofttranslator.com/transliterate?api-version=3.0&language=hi&fromScript=Latn&toScript=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!!

Hi, thanks a lot for the reply. This completely solves my query. Can you provide me with links on details of this API where I can test few cases for free, know about the pricing and all so that I can move ahead with this API.
