    Hindi Sorting (Sanskrit & Devanagari)

    fatcowcom

      How do you sort Sanskrit words in devanagari?

      Hindi should be rather close, so I used http://www.kahrel.plus.com/indesign/sort.html

       

      Before sorting:

      ⎷abhibhāṣ — 158

      ⎷abhibhū — 62

      ⎷abhidhā — 37, 68, 146

      ⎷abhidru — 76, 108, 178

      ⎷abhigam — 138

      ⎷abhigā — 135

      ⎷abhihary — 97

      ⎷abhilaṣ — 149, 155

      ⎷abhiman — 120, 132

      ⎷abhinand — 84

      ⎷abhipīḍ — 72

      ⎷abhisar — 165, 173

      ⎷abhisaṅdhā — 65

      ⎷abhisaṅçri — 76

      ⎷abhivad — 106, 108, 139

      ⎷abhivarṣ — 72

      ⎷abhivar — 72, 89

      ⎷abhiṣic — 180

       

       

      After:

      ⎷lī — 118

      ⎷īç — 50

      ⎷aç — 103

      ⎷ej — 102

      ⎷sū — 88

      ⎷dā — 83

      ⎷hu — 135

      ⎷tṝ — 34

      ⎷su — 137

      ⎷pū — 100

      ⎷as — 44

      ⎷dam — 145

      ⎷cyu — 149

      ⎷cud — 140

      ⎷sru — 73

      ⎷cit — 90

      ⎷snā — 138

      ⎷çak — 52

      ⎷çam — 73

      ⎷diç — 65

      ⎷jar — 59

      ⎷gup — 37

      ⎷çās — 132

      ⎷lag — 44

       

      So nowhere even close. What do you use for sorting Hindi text strings?
