Diploma Project Monoscript – Hindi in the Roman script
Dr Tridha Gajjar

Dev Kabir Malik Design

The Monoscript project aims to create a logic-based system that can be used in the transliteration of Hindi to the Roman script in an informal setting, preserving sounds to facilitate clarity in communication and to create a standardisation of usage. Romanisation of Indic languages hides in the shadows of shoddily written text messages, lyrics, signage and even government documents. This project attempts to legitimise the use of the Roman alphabet to write Hindi or another Indic languages while creating a practical system that does not compromise the language. A keyboard layout that supports both English and Hindi was also created.
