Google Transliteration for Indian languages
Bangalore: Google has launched software that will allow users to type words in phonetically in any of the 14 languages like Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu, using an English keyboard. The software called Google Transliteration IME (Input Method Editor) is a desktop application which can be accessed even when offline, according to Alootechie.

Google Transliteration service has already been available on the web in Gmail, Orkut, Blogger. "The IME transliteration technology is an innovation from Google India that furthers our corporate mission of making the world's information universally assessable and useful. We have extended this to several other international languages as well as we believe there is a huge global opportunity for this technology," Rahul Roy Chowdhury, Senior Product Manager, Google India, has said.

The application was conceived and developed in India at Google's Bangalore R&D Centre.

3: Please note that this is a 32-bit application. If you attempt installation on a 64-bit OS, it installs without any warning, but then does not work. What is worse, it cannot be uninstalled also!
