The Gentoo Code is a legal code translated from Sanskrit (in which it was known as vivādārṇavasetu) to Persian by Brahmin scholars and then from Persian to English by Nathaniel Brassey Halhed, a British grammarian working for the East India Company. The translation was explicitly funded and encouraged by Warren Hastings as a method of increasing the colonial hold over the Indies.
