This paper presents modeling of transliteration as a phrase-based machine translation system. We used a popular phrasebased machine translation system for English-Hindi machine transliteration. We have achieved an accuracy of 38.1% on the test set. We used some basic rules to modulate the existing phrased-based transliteration system. Our experiments show that phrase-based machine translation systems can be adopted by modulating the system to fit the transliteration problem.
