INDscripteR - a multi-lingual tool for librarians, library users and linguists

Scripts of various languages all over the world have been a subject of interest, study and research ever since they came into existence.

INDscripteR is the very first software created by the Software Division of DK supporting conversion of Romanized text as per ALA/LC Romanization Tables into the original Indic script of that very language using Unicode.  In this multi-cultural and multi-lingual world, INDscripteR helps librarians and library users to look at and identify a product data on the computer screens in the scripts it is originally available. INDscripteR  is available for converting texts into Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Panjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil,Telugu and Urdu languages. Since a significant number of titles appear in India in Tibetan language, INDscripteR already supports its conversion.

Why you need INDscripteR

Multi-lingual world:

India is pretty well known for its vast cultural, ethnic and language affinities and these have been drawing the attention of not only the scholars but also the people in general worldwide.  Native Indians have been migrating for centuries and are spread in almost all corners of the globe, and so are the Indian languages.  Here comes a great challenge for librarians, archivists, linguists and library / archive users to understand and identify the scripts being used in these languages.  And INDscripteR  takes care of most of them.

Tag 880 of MARC 21 records:

 Tag 880 denotes Alternate Graphic Representation (generally a script) of another field in the same record. If your collection includes books in any of the languages given above, and the library management system being used is Unicode compatible, then INDscripteR  can multi-fold the usefulness of your collection. You can convert the major fields of a book/record into its original script and save the same in tag 880. This will help the librarian as well as the end user of the book to search and identify a book.

       Library Management Softwares not supporting Unicode :

            In such a situation, there is no need to change the system in vogue. Simply paste and convert the data
            through the INDscripteR view/print the  same. 

Minimum System Requirements 

  • Framework. Net 2.0 required.  Available for free download from microsoft.com
  • Internet access is a must while running INDscripteR
  • For all the languages, except Tibetan, ‘Arial MS Unicode’ font is used. For Tibetan ‘Tibetan Machine Uni’ font is used.
