Now You Too Can Blog in Hindi

Attention, bloggers who use, um, Blogger: Now you can impress your friends by sharing your thoughts in fancy Devanagari script. How is this possible? Well, the wonderful folks at the Google blog have introduced a feature that “allows you to type out Hindi words using phonetically equivalent English script, and see the words getting transformed into the corresponding Devanagari script.”

How well does it work? Well, I can barely read Urdu—what my family speaks at home—so I wasn’t able to test out the accuracy. But according to Google, Blogger’s transliteration feature will supposedly adapt to the way you spell Hindi and remember your writing style. So—those of you out there who can read Devanagari, let us know how well this works in the comments!
