Abstract

India being a multilingual nation, with 22 recognised official languages, also has literature in all these languages; they find representation in the Digital Library of India (DLI) which holds over 120,000 books. DLI has driven the creation of a large number of applications to process and present the Indian language content. In this paper, we present the creation of a multilingual book reader interface for DLI that supports transliteration and “good enough translation” features making it possible for readers to read a book that is written in another language.
