How to write in Hindi on Facebook or anywhere else.  

Posted by Jaideep Walia in , , ,

Internet’s penetration in India is increasing exponentially and so is the need for communicating in one’s own language. Information and thoughts are easily exchanged if expressed in one’s own language. With the diversity of India, English became a common language of conversation between speakers of different languages and schooling in most parts of India is done in English. Still a large population converse in their mother-tongue and there is no reason why they should not do the same over the web. With the advent of social networking sites like Facebook, the need of typing in one’s language has increased.
I have already shown you a way on how to write in Hindi (or for that matter in many other Indian languages) here. I am going to show you another way of typing in Hindi (or other supported Indian languages).
Thanks to Google Transliteration IME, we can easily write in may India languages i.e. Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu.
All you have to do is go to Google Transliteration IME
Select your desired language
Select your desired language
click Download Google IME.
Download Google IME
Then Install the downloaded file.
Install

To display the Language bar all you have to do is in desktop, right click on tool bar and select Toolbars -> Language bar.
If the 'Language bar' option is not visible in 'Toolbars', then it needs to be enabled through control panel:
In Windows 7/Vista
  1. Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Keyboard and Languages tab
  2. Click on Change keyboards... button to open Text services and input languages dialog
  3. Navigate to Language Bar tab
  4. Enable the radio button Docked in the taskbar under Language Bar section
  5. Apply all settings and try to display language bar as mentioned earlier by right clicking on tool bar and select Toolbars -> Language bar.
Settings

In Windows XP
  1. Go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages tab -> Text services and input languages (Details) -> Advanced Tab
  2. Make sure that under System configuration, option Turn off advanced text services is NOT checked.
  3. Go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages tab -> Text services and input languages (Details) -> Settings Tab
  4. Click Language Bar
  5. Select Show the Language bar on the desktop. Click OK.
  6. If you are installing the IME for East Asian language or Right-To-Left language, go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages Tab
  7. Make sure that options Install files for complex scripts and right to left languages and Install files for East Asian languages are checked in the checkboxes. This requires installation of system files and the system will prompt to insert the Operating System Disc.
  8. Apply all settings and try to display language bar as mentioned earlier by right clicking on tool bar and select Toolbars -> Language bar.
To switch between English <=> Hindi, you can press Shift + Alt.
Using this method you can type in almost any application.
आशा करता हूँ की मेरे इस लेख से आपकी मदद हुई होगी और आप अब हिंदी (या अपनी मातृभाषा) में लिख रहे हैं.
