Google launched the “Google Transliteration IME” for windows 64-bit and covering 5 more languages (Amharic, Russian, Sanskrit, Serbian, Tigrinya) making it 19 languages in total. An IME is an “Input Method Editor” and simply refers to software that lets you type in a language of your choice. Transliteration IME offers several features focused on an improved user experience. With this launch we have added two more key features: Canonical Schemes and Macros. Canonical transliteration schemes help the users to define their own basic key mappings (like ISCII standard for many Indic languages) which may be familiar to them than using Google IME’s intuitive key mappings. Macros feature enables the user to add their own shortcut character sequences for their mostly typed or complex words. Google Transliteration is also available in Blogger, Gmail, Knol, Orkut and as a bookmarklet. You can also enable it on your website using the transliteration API,” noted Google.
