    How to transliterate Sankrit / Hindi / Devanagari Script into English in Indesign CS 5.5

      Dear Adobe Community,

       

      I am working on a book project where I need to transliterate Sanskrit / Hindi / Devanagari Script into English in Indesign CS 5.5

       

      The book project is for an English Commentary on Bhagwad Geeta--where first we will first have the Devanagari script, and then have a transliteration into English so people can read them.

       

      So we will need to put short horizontal lines above some vowels, as well as a small dot sometimes above and sometimes below certain consonants to show how to pronounce the words for those who cannot read the original foreign script.  In some cases a slanted line would be used (rarely) and sometimes a tilda would be used (rarely).

       

      Suggestions, pointers etc will be appreciated.

       

      Detailed step by step instructions would be most helpful as I am new to the bookmaking process in the software.

       

      Thank you very much for your assistance.
