Microsoft Unifies "Language Input Tool"

Microsoft has two existing “specific” Language Input Tools:

  • Indic Language Input Tool helps enter Indian text (Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, & Telugu).
  • Maren type Arabic in Roman characters (Romanized Arabic, Arabizi, Arabish or Franco-Arabic) and it converts on the fly to Arabic script.


Now Microsoft’s Translator Labs have released their Universal Text Input combining their two previous works.

NEW: Try it –> “Universal Text Input” is beginning to port an IME to the web, independent of the operating system. Currently only a small set of languages are available: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Greek, Japanese and Russian.


(Thanks Long)
