Transliteration among Indian Languages using WX Notation

In this paper, we propose an algorithm to transliterate between several Indian languages. The main aim of the algorithm is to assist in the translation process by providing efficient transliteration. This algorithm works on Unicode transformation format of an Indian language. It then transliterates it into the Unicode transformation format of the target language. It does no sort of bilingual dictionary lookup of the word. It can be used to transliterate nouns (e.g. named entities) in the translation process as well as for transliterating some text into other language which is more suitable for the reader.
