Google अब हिंदी में

Google तो जैसे रुकेगा ही नहीं। अब हिंदी में blog लिखना बहुत ही सरल हो गया है। transliteration के schemes तो हमेशा से थे पर google का नया हिंदी blogging का tool बहुत ही ज्यादा सरल है। आपको जो ठीक लगे, उस हिसाब से अंग्रेजी में लिखते जाइए, और google खुद समझ लेता है कि हिंदी का कौनसा शब्द है। यही नहीं, अगर एक से अधिक शब्दों कि spelling अंग्रेजी में एक सी होगी, तो शब्द पर left-click करने से सारे options दिखा देता है। google वो सब कुछ कर रहा है जो मैं करना चाहूँगा। ये गलत बात है। :(

  • hey.. the transliteration thing is offered by many editors too.. like "Yudit".. chk out http://www.yudit.org/.. so all that google has done is - make it light and do it with javascript in a browser..

    I know that what google has done isn't really new. I myself wrote a transliterator not less than 8 years ago. The good thing is that since we use Google so much, an integrated hindi typing tool is very cool.

    Do I recognize the work done by the
    likes of yudit and tachyon - of course. Whether or not they were the first ones to do it is immaterial. They've built a cool product and it is appreciated.
    As I've said in my previous postings, I'd rather like that Google does not become so powerful as to control our lives (which it already does in my opinion) and instead, independent developers create cool tools and then figure out ways to plug their tools in with other services to build custom applications for users. That way, a monopoly will be avoided and yet the user experience would be enriched.
