Abstract: Language technology is undergoing a great change and within a few years languages of the world will embark on OTF (Open Type Font) Technology. Major operating systems have already started embedding Asian languages using OTF. Being a major bibliographic DBMS, CDS/ISIS cannot ignore these developments that have taken place in text processing. This paper looks at the ideas behind Unicode and OTF and examines future developments of multilingual information systems. The Unicode is a minimalist encoding which includes currently all major scripts in use and allows easy migration from an existing encoding scheme to it. Indic language computing will be tremendously benefited from the development of OTF in compliance with Unicode. CDS/ISIS should be made Unicode compliant by utilizing the shaping and encoding engine on various operating systems so that it can be effectively utilized to develop and distribute local information systems using vernacular scripts. The source code of CDS/ISIS may be made available under a free software license, allowing the evolution of the package in a free and socially useful manner.
