How to write in Hindi on Facebook

First of all I would like to wish my Lil’ sis
“A Happy Birthday”
I joined facebook sometime back and I am so happy that I did. I found a lot of my school friends there and now I am addicted to it.
I am from Delhi, India (as are most of my school friends). I started conversing with them in Hindi (most of the time) as I feel that one can express better in his/her mothertongue. Unlike Orkut, Facebook does not support typing in Hindi, so I am presenting here a way to write comments, posts etc using Google's service.

To be able to type in Hindi, you should have Firefox (The Best Browser).

Same Procedure can be used with Internet Explorer. Read my comment no. 26 for changes required for Internet Explorer.
  1. The procedure for different languages remains the same for all the languages as with Hindi.

    Right-click on the links below for different languages:

    [अ Type in Hindi]

    [অ Type in Bengali]

    [અ Type in Gujarati]

    [ಅ Type in Kannada]

    [അ Type in Malayalam]

    [अ Type in Marathi]

    [ਅ Type in Punjabi]

    [அ Type in Tamil]

    [అ Type in Telugu]

    [آ Type in Urdu]

  2. Click on "Bookmark This Link".
    ff_add_to_bookmarks
  3. Choose "Bookmarks Toolbar" in the "Folder" option.
ff_folder_option_hi

Now you will have a bookmark “Type in Hindi” book4
Now go to www.google.com and then press “Type in Hindi’ bookmark.
Wait for sometime till you see something like this
book5
Wait some more and you will see
book6
Now type anything in English
book7
Press Spacebar. Do not press Enter
This is what you will get
book8
Now you can search things in Hindi.
Click this bookmarklet while in the Facebook and your comment window will become Hindi enabled !!! Now write Hindi comments right in Facebook.

  2. Try this one http://www.google.com/transliterate/ the script is not running. Also it is not healthy to run unknown java scripts in browser.

    ReplyDelete
  3. @Laeeq..... The java script does nothing more than provide google's transliteration in the edit box on web page itself. Study the javascript code and you will come to know what I am talking about.

    And the script works, I use it daily.

  19. For Internet Explorer users:-

    Step 1 remains the same.
    Step 2) Click on "Add to Favorites"
    step 3) 3.Choose "Favorites Bar" in the "Create in:" option and click Add.

    The rest of the procedure remains the same.

  22. How to redo it. I actually pressed save while bookmarks menu shown in the folder tab. Pl. help.

  23. A facebook app also has been created, using which you can directly type in to the app and post on your wall or on your friend's wall :-

    http://apps.facebook.com/hindiscripter/

    It internally uses google transliterate api.

    ReplyDelete
  24. other way is to use to Google IME for hindi
    http://www.google.com/ime/transliteration/

    Through this you flawlessly type in hindi.. irrespective of the application/browser you are using..


    For mobile one can use software's like paninikeypad or quillpad...

  35. It worked for me on other websites but not on facebook..
    So I Downloaded Google input method for Hindi.
    And it worked for me on facebook.
    You better try that.

    "Google Transliteration IME is an input method editor which allows users to enter text in one of the supported languages using a roman keyboard."
