Online Transliteration tool.

ITRANS or IAST <---> Devanagari transliteration tool -

Transliteration is the process of converting a word from the alphabet of one language to another. It changes the letters from the word's original alphabet to similar-sounding letters in a different one.

For example, in Devanagari the word boy (baalakaH) is written as - बालक: (Devanagari). When letters in the same word is changed to similar sounding letters in another language e.g., here in the English language, बालक: -> baalakaH (ITRANS) or bālakaḥ (IAST) .

ITRANS and IAST are commonly used transliteration schemes you will find in Samskritam books. It is important to use the write tools to ensure there is no spelling errors in transliteration.

Once you learn the transliteration key - you don't need this online link! You can do transliterate independently! :)
