Google launches Hindi news service and Hindi blogger

Google has launched its Hindi news service and Hindi transliteration on blogger as its web publishing service. The Indian subsidiary of the US-based firm said in a statement that the twin services would enable the Hindi-speaking people to have quicker and easier access to more information in the country’s most popular language.

Google News in Hindi will gather news stories from various Hindi news sources and present a ranked one-page view with links to them. Similarly, Google’s transliteration technology will enable the conversion from English text to phonetically equivalent text in Indian languages. Hindi transliteration on blogger will enable users to publish content in Hindi while using English keyboards for text entry. Since the user audience is mostly bilingual, Google will allow users to freely switch from English to Hindi, and vice versa.

“Google is committed to promoting the creation and consumption of content in Indian languages. These launches will enable our Hindi-speaking users to express themselves better and access information in a language they are comfortable with,” said Prasad Ram, Google R&D-Centre Head.

Google’s search is already available in five Indian languages: Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil and Marathi. The toolbar also has a search bar in Hindi.
