Blogger Adds Transliteration for Hindi

Blogger has a new feature that may be helpful if you write your posts in Hindi.

"Blogger offers an automatic transliteration option for converting Roman characters to the Devanagari characters used in Hindi. This lets you type Hindi words phonetically in English script and still have them appear in their correct alphabet. Note that this is not the same as translation -- it is the sound of the words that are converted from one alphabet to other, not their meaning."

You just have to go to settings in one of your blogs and enable "Show transliteration for each post". In compose mode, Blogger will automatically convert Roman characters to the Devanagari characters while you type.

Hindi is spoken by almost 800 million people (according to Wikipedia), mostly in India.
