Transliterate

To transliterate is to use the alphabet of a language to produce the sounds of another language, and thereby pronounce it.  For example, the first few words of John 1:1 in Greek are εν αρχη ην ο λογος which is pronounced (transliterated) as "en arche ane ho logos" which in English is "In the beginning was the word . . . "

Greek εν αρχη ην ο λογος
Transliteration en arche ane ho logos
Translation in beginning was the word
