Hindi Writing Tools Posted by on Apr 24, 2014 in Hindi Language

Let me show you some tools or possibilities which can be used to write in Devanagari (देवनागरी),  the standard script for Hindi. I have found two possibilities for the same, one is online websites or services and offline software which you can install on your computer to writing directly to your favorite text editor such as Microsoft Word, Notepad etc.

To write in Hindi, you must know the romanized Hindi. Romanized Hindi is formed when you replace the alphabets in Hindi with their similar sounding alphabets in another language. For example, if you want to write “नाम” (Eng. Name) then its romanaized Hindi spelling will be “Naam”. When you write this romanized spelling (“Naam”) into below mentioned tools, the romanized spelling will be transliterated (not translated) to “नाम” (in Devanagari script). Here we should remembers that there is no standard rules which defines the romanaization of Hindi. The best bet would be to use the form which will transliterate into the right word in Hindi i.e. Naam transliterate to “नाम”, but Nam would not.

Online Tools:

Online tools can be used by accessing the website and you can write into the specified field in romanized Hindi, while the transliterated message appears in the other field. You need to select the target/translated language to Hindi. In Google Input, however, you are presented with 0nly one field where you write in romanized Hindi and it is instantly transliterated to Hindi as soon as the word is completed.
