This software is a pre-processor, it converts input representing Indic Text to the actual Indian Language Script, for printout or for display on Web pages. The input is uses English letters, so it can be created using any simple text editor.

This document describes the use of the program itrans, which may be used to generate Devanagari, Tamil, Bengali, Telugu, Gujarati, Kannada, Punjabi (Gurmukhi), or Romanized Sanskrit output from input in an english transliterated form.

Many examples of ITRANS use are available on the web, archives for different purposes are available. One such project is a collection of Hindi Film Song Lyrics; another project is a collection of Sanskrit documents.
