India is a country of different languages depending on different states and culture and so there are lot many blogs with different languages as well. When you visit a blog and found something really interesting over there, you want to post a comment. Now you can post comments in your own language rather than the default language as English. It will definitely suit the content of the blog as well as create more interaction with other readers. To do that, Google India has started Google Indic Transliteration thru which one can post comments or write text in his own language.
Google Indic Transliteration is already implemented in Gmail, so you can send email in your own language. Currently they have offered Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Urdu but they may offer other languages in future as well. In this initiative, you can use transliteration Bookmarklet to post comments in your own language. here is the example where I am posting a comment on one of the article from Internet Techies.
Note: There are lot many other bookmarklets for Google Chrome which you may find useful.
First of all you will have to place the bookmarklet in your browser’s favourite list. So that you can use the bookmarklet on single click. There are different ways to add the bookmarklet on different browser but the most common way to do that is “Drag The Bookmarklet” to browser’s bookmark bar. You will find the step by step process to enable the bookmarklet of a language on this link. You will have to place different bookmarklet for different language.
Now open the blog page. Click on the language bookmarklet to enable the language transliteration. Now go to the comment box and click over there. You will see a letter appearing on the comment box in your selected language. Start typing your comment in English, whenever you will complete a word in English and click on space; the word will be translated in your selected language. After completing the comment, Post it. You can see your comment appearing in your own language.
Google India initially started the bus service to educate people in remote areas about Internet and its usage. Now this Transliteration Bookmarklet service will definitely boost the blogging community by providing a local touch.
