Changes in Build

  • au, aa, ai after - (dash) did not convert correctly in Devanagari. Corrected.
  • Read-only ITRANS files did not save and also no warning was given. Now, read-only files open as 'new file', forcing the user to save it under a new name.
  • {\m+} did not convert after preceding svarahs. Corrected.
  • Combined Conversion: Converting very long paragraphs considerably
    slowed down the system. This has been corrected.
  • Combined Conversion converts line-by-line, i.e. after every Devanagari line follows a Transliteration line. However, most Sanskrit texts consists of verses. To achieve this verse-by-verse conversion, insert a blank line after every verse.

URW Palladio IT98 (Transliteration Font for Itranslator 98)

The old Itranslator 98 (replaced by the new Itranslator 99) should not be used any longer for creating new text files, but its old fonts are still required for viewing a large number of already existing Sanskrit texts encoded in Itranslator 98 fonts.
A new version of the old transliteration font in Palladio design was made in May 2004 by Ulrich Stiehl to enable mixing of already existing Itranslator 98 files with newly generated Itranslator 99 files. For this purpose, you must replace "Translit98" by "URW Palladio IT98". These fonts are available for download here:
