Writing in Hindi Made easy!

Now writing in Hindi is more easy, now we don't need to learn that complex Hindi keyboard; just spell the Hindi word in roman script [English; ex. 'bharat']  and there you get the word in Devnagari [Hindi; 'भारत'].
CDAC Mumbai has developed a transliteration tool called Xlit, which transliterates [converts] betwen English and Indian Language[Hindi, marathi, tamil, kanada, etc.].

You can also use the same system for writng in Hindi in OpenOffice  [A free OpenSource office suite:get it here: http://www.openoffice.org/ ], using an extension called XlitHindi. To download this please visit:  http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/project/xlithindi .

 Some screen shots of the extension:

Notice the 'XliHindi' Tool box, click it to enable the transliteration
 
Write sentence as "mumbai [HIT SAPCEBAR] bharat [HIT SAPCEBAR] ki [HIT SAPCEBAR] arthik [HIT SAPCEBAR] rajadhani[HIT SAPCEBAR]" and Right click to see better option:
 
After selecting the correct option in Hindi

click the 'XlitHindi' tool box to Disable the transliteration [You may also ON/OFF it for short periods using 'CTRL+T' key combination while writing].


||Spread the word, help Indianizing the computing and making it Free and OpenSource||
