I use Sanskrit 2003 for my bilingual document. But the English so generated result in a very uneven and poorly looking document. I can not modify the text in between \begin{document} and \end{document} as it is generated by a software. So I can modify the preamble of a template only.

How can I use Bookman or Garamond for English and Sanskrit 2003 for Hindi? I am at present using folllowing lines in preamble

\setmainfont[Script=Devanagari]{Sanskrit 2003}
\setsansfont[Script=Devanagari]{Sanskrit 2003}
\setmonofont[Script=Devanagari]{Sanskrit 2003}

    I believe that the ucharclasses package is precisely what you're looking for. Can you add some text in Hindi and English to play with? – egreg Jul 29 '13 at 11:23
  • I am getting following error in file gloss-english.ldf line 6: \do undefined. } – Vaibhav Jul 30 '13 at 5:23
  • You should upgrade your TeX distribution; that error has been recently corrected. – egreg Jul 30 '13 at 9:14
  • When I type दिन तिन on tex file , the pdf generated showed दनि तनि. Why is it happeninig ? I used Sanskrit 2003 and Mangal as font. – Vaibhav Jul 30 '13 at 9:42

The ucharclasses package makes this possible.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\usepackage[Latin,Devanagari]{ucharclasses}

\setmainfont{Devanagari MT}

% Maybe Sanskrit 2003 doesn't need the following line;
% in this case change \devanagarifont in the \setTransitions
% commands to \normalfont
\newfontfamily{\devanagarifont}{Devanagari MT}

% choose the font for English
\newfontfamily{\englishfont}[Ligatures=TeX]{TeX Gyre Pagella}

\setmainlanguage{hindi}
\setotherlanguage{english}

\setTransitionsFor{Latin}
  {\hyphenrules{english}\englishfont}
  {\hyphenrules{hindi}\devanagarifont}
\setTransitionsFor{Devanagari}
  {\hyphenrules{hindi}\devanagarifont}
  {\hyphenrules{english}\englishfont}
