XlitHindi is an English to Hindi transliteration extension for OpenOffice Writer. This extension transliterates the words from English to Hindi [ex: converts 'bharat' to 'भारत', 'school' to 'स्कूल', etc. ] and offers more Hindi options for each English word on right click. It uses Xlit, developed by KBCS Team, C-DAC Mumbai, as the transliteration engine.
Xlit [You may try online editor here ] is a transliteration tool to convert words from English to Indian Language and back, without losing the phonetic characteristics. It can be used as an input method, in Machine Translation systems, in e-governance applications and in other applications that need to enter text in Indian languages and English.
