One of the great things about the web is the way it enables us to communicate with anyone we want without struggling too much. What makes it even better is how much flexibility we are given in doing so. When we talk to people, we do so in a language we're comfortable with. However, when it comes to email, for the most part, we can't type in messages in the language of our choice, and have to resort to English for the most part. This is, of course, not true anymore with rapid advances not only in language encoding technologies (like Unicode), but also a number of tools that not only let you type in your own language, but also leverage the skill that you've learned to cope with typing in English. Yes, I'm talking about transliteration, which the dictionary defines as "rewrite in a different script" what you want to convey in a given language.
This is really relevant for non-Latin languages, like Asian languages for example. So, if you're a native Hindi speaker, for example, you could type (using English letters) something like "theek hai" ("okay"), the typed text automagically gets transliterated into "ठीक है".
So, without further ado, I present to you a tool that you can use to type in messages in your own (Indic) language. In the section below, choose the language of your choice, and start typing in (in English) what you wish to say in your language! Please note: this feature is enabled by the Google Language Transliteration API, and is thus limited to the languages that that API supports. I hope that isn't really be a problem since the number of scripts that it covers is pretty good!
