Enable Transliteration for Individual Languages

In cases where you need a particular transliteration, you can set GenericTransliteration to False and use the per-language transliteration schemes.

When you set GenericTransliteration to False, the IDOL Content component always performs transliteration for the languages in the following table, even if you also set Transliteration to False.
