We have come a long way from our first Indic transliteration release
to our current support for transliteration in 5 languages — Hindi,
Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu — for a broader set of Google
products. We are also happy to release our very first English to Hindi translation service. Read on to understand how you can use these services to create, communicate and search in your language, and more.

  • Express your views and create more content: Blogger.

  • Scrap your friends in your language: orkut.

You can now also try out our brand new English to Hindi translation service, and the translated search feature that lets you query in Hindi, obtain search results for the translated query in English, and then see the Hindi translations of these results.

For more information on all of these, read our press release.
