Aligarh: Dr Shamim Fatma, Assistant Professor, Department of Linguistics, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) got the ‘Best Paper Award’ for her paper on ‘Rule-based Devanagari to Urdu Transliteration System with and without AIRAB’ during the international conference on ‘Sustainable Advanced Computing ICSAC-2021’, organized by the Department of Computer Science, Christ (Deemed to be University), Bengaluru.
Her paper has also been published by Springer in the journal of the conference proceedings.
The AMU faculty member discussed how efficiently the transliteration tool converts both plain and html formatted Hindi texts into Urdu without affecting the format.
“Since Urdu and Hindi are similar at structural level with common words, albeit with different scripts; the transliteration becomes efficient and quick,” she said.
Dr Fatma added that the transliteration tool is programmed to bridge the gap in both languages, giving output with and without AIRAAB.
Dr Fatma has filled the AMU community with a sense of pride, said Prof M J Warsi (Chairman, Department of Linguistics).
