Sorry if I am repeating, but I do not seem to see my post here. Does anybody know of a Malayalam language package. I am working on a Mac running Leopard.

AFAIK, texlive 2011 has support for indic script.. – Vineet Menon Jul 1 '12 at 16:54
you can try this package, it uses phonetic transliteration.. ctan.org/pkg/malayalam-latex – Vineet Menon Jul 1 '12 at 16:56
Thank you, I shall try that. Phonetic transliteration is helpful. It is easier for me. – Maclin Jul 15 '12 at 19:09
@VineetMenon: I think this should be posted as an answer. – Caramdir Jul 15 '12 at 21:12

This thread from TUGIndia Mailing list should help you in the right direction. And, here are a couple of references from a Google search:

  • See this this package on CTAN.
  • There's also this initiative by Government of India, funded by CTAN, working on Malayalam fonts; linked is the homepage for the project.

Typesetting Indic languages is still undergoing a lot of development. For instance, in case of Tamil language, see this TeX.SX thread.
