Last week, one of my church member asked my help to translate an english document to tamil. Eventhough I had no experience in any kind of tamil typing whatsoever, I accepted that offer to try something.
Quite some time back, I blogged about Google transliteration tool which is available online.I thought of trying it for this activity.
Google transliteration helps you to type in english and transliterate into tamil. (Please note that it’s not translation).
I did the translation myself with the help of some online english to tamil dictionaries.
And finally, I needed some formatting and suddenly Google Docs came to my mind. What more, Google Docs helps you to even share your online document.
And Google Docs also provides option to export your document into formats like pdf, msword, openoffice etc..
With these tools, you can create decent looking tamil documents.
(Please note that google transliteration uses unicode characters)
