The Google Tamil Input
tool is an easy to use transliteration and language support IME application. It is very efficient in "phonetic transliteration", which allows users to type the Tamil
word in any of the supported languages through the keyboard and receive an output of printed Tamil
word. The tool also provides auto suggestions of Tamil
words, which are displayed as and when the users type in the words phonetically. There is also a virtual Tamil
alphabet keyboard that allows users to choose the Tamil
letters directly, without using the suggestion or transliteration option. Users can utilize this tool to not only create documents in Tamil
but can also perform system and browser functions like – creating a file name in Tamil
search in Tamil
, etc. When compared to the other Tamil
language tools on the market, the Google
tool is basic. However, it is free and easily downloadable. People who intend to use the Tamil
language tool occasionally can benefit greatly by downloading it. Even though you may find the geatures of this tool too primitive, you still can benefit from the instant suggestion option, which is considered to be one of the best because of Google’s expertise in such kind of APIs.
