Ever visited a website and wanted to type in your language but did not find transliteration feature there? Now you can use Google transliteration bookmarklets to type in your language on any website.
Transliteration bookmarklet is a small
piece of code that you save in your browser. Once saved, you can type
in your langauge in any input editor on any website of your choice. It
works on Google websites as well as other websites.
For example, you can use the Hindi bookmarklet to chat in Hindi in Gmail, Tamil bookmarklet to send
messages in Tamil to your friends on social networking websites, or edit
an Arabic Wikipedia article or search for
Greek information on Google search.
Note that you do not need to use the bookmarklet to compose email in Gmail, write blog, write a knol or use in Labs page. Transliteration is built-in on these websites. A list of Google products which have transliteration available can be seen here.
Google Transliteration Bookmarklets are available in 19 different languages - Amharic, Arabic, Bengali, Greek, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Persian (Farsi), Punjabi, Russian, Sanskrit, Serbian, Tamil, Telugu, Tigrinya and Urdu.
