Google Transliteration Is Fun!


Google Transliteration

హలో చెల్లలు గారు
మీరు బాగా ఉన్నారా
నేను ఇక్కడ బాగా ఉన్నాను
నా పెళ్ళాం కూడా బాగా ఉన్నది
నా స్నేహితుడు నంబూరి – నువ్వు ఎలాగా ఉన్నావు

రాజీవ్ అబ్రహం (That’s my name)

Those who know me personally will be very much surprised to see me write in such fluent Telugu (my mother tongue which I cannot read or write with much fluency), but thanks to Google now everyone can write in any language they want (as long as its supported by Google).  Simply visit http://www.google.com/transliterate/, choose the language you want to type in from the dropdown menu and begin to type in English. Please do note that it is not translation in the sense the meaning is interpreted and translated but the phonetic sounds are converted into the native language.  Meaning if you want the word rice in Telugu then type in the actual Telugu word phonetically i.e. in this instance “annam” and it will be transliterated into the Telugu script “అన్నం”.  Typing in rice will covert (transliterate) it to “రైస్” which is not the Telugu word for it.  Give it a spin, I’m sure you will be able to surprise your friends and family with your new found language skills.

Google Transliterate is also available for download from http://www.google.com/ime/transliteration/ and can be used on a desktop PC too.
