How to transliterate in external applications (Wordpad, MS-Word, etc.) in Hindi, Malayalam 1. After Azhagi starts, press F9 to bring the language selector screen. You have to select start typing in Hindi. The button 'set selected language as default startup language' will be build.

2. Once you press F9, the language selector will appear. Next time you press, it will disap to keep it that way. Suggestions are welcome.

3. After you press F10 in a certain application and select a language in the language selec shift to your working application. I have kept it so so that user can try out diff. languages (o fully) quickly. One can select a language by pressing F9 and pressing the starting letter of itself. At present, T and M map to 2 diff. languages. I shall do something about it.Anyway, designs. Anything can be changed with your valuable suggestions.

4. After selecting Hindi, to type in Hindi, you have to do the same thing as for Tamil. i.e. Ju in Wordpad and not in MS-Word as it will be easier and also Wordpad does not need 'lang enabled. By the by, the procedure to type in MS-Word is same as for Tamil but instead of the Hindi-US keyboard layout and while pressing Alt-Shift, you have to see that Hindi is sh MS-Word instead of Tamil.

5. Right now, I have given F9 as the hotkey. If you feel some other hotkey can be used, le the reasons too.

How to transliterate in Hindi, Malayalam, etc. in Azhagi's in-built Unicode Editor? Please see for instructions


1. Can I use R, Rh for ड़ and ढ़ resp.? Becos in some 'learn hindi in 30 days' books and a they have written 'ra' and 'rha' to represent ड़ and ढ़. I don’t know how exactly ड़ and ढ़ are expert opinion is needed. If you feel 'R' and 'Rh' will be appropriate, I shall give those map odd 'w' and 'W'. I can't give 'r' and 'rh' as 'r' is already used for 'य'.

1a. I see that both the under-dotted and regular forms 'of 'da' and 'Da' appear at the middl know any specific rule exists which tells where under-dotted and where normal form of da middle of words. So, I had to give a separate mapping for ड़ and ढ़ which are at present w suggestions.

2. I understand that K, Kh and G (़, ऽ, ा) are not used by the common hindi writers. Is th

2a. Also, I don't know whether all of ़, ऽ, ा, फ़, ज़ and य़ are used in Hindi or only ज़ and differently about this.

3. Can I make 'shri' also to give श्री itself or let it give लश्र itself. Is लश्र existing in hindi to wri shringeri?). Right now, to get श्री, one has to type shrii or shree or shrI

4. What about 'sri'? Right now, sri will give लि but does लि exist in any word? If not, can I to श्री? 5. I understand that 'ऻ' is pronounced as Gya in Hindi instead of jna. So, I have given the same. Otherwise, one can get it by typing jGn also.

6. I see that the dot (as in भॊगर) and chandrabindu (as in भॉगाना) appear according to no s appear before certain consonants ofcourse but in the consonants before which they appea follow a specific rule. Thats what I mean. Thats evident from the words I have mentioned i any such rule is available, I can have some intelligence in-built into azhagi for hindi also (a wherein I have built in lots of intelligence. for e.g. for typing words like அண்டம், மஞ்சு, etc.). So, if any such rule exists let me know. As of now, since I dont have the knowledge rules, I cant help giving a specific mapping for dot and bindu which are z and q (or Q and charm of naturalness/intuitiveness of azhagi is lost but, as of now, thats the situation and some specific and implementable rules are made known to me.

7. I have given z and q for dot and bindu so that one need not use shift. At the same time, easy to have the same letter (small and caps) for both dot and bindu. So, what I did was to and bindu so that whoever wishes to use 'q' alone or 'z' alone can get benefitted. Persona convenient.

8. Next in line is malayalam for me. So, give your suggestions for Hindi which I will try to in possible and then move on to malayalam 9. You can try typing in other languages (malayalam, telugu, kannada, gujarathi etc.) also any perfection in them, because, as of now, I have done my work for Hindi only
