Phonetic Translation For Hindi

Hello!! I am an Indian, and for obvious reasons I have many friends on twitter who are also Indian and  we communicate in Hindi very often. Wait!! We don't type Hindi on twitter, because Hindi typing requires a special keyboard (or at least special Input Method), which we typically don't keep with us. Its because we Indian officially work in English Language.

So if you are a foreigner and You see this phonetically typed Hindi, No way you can get it translated to your own language.

So For you I have created a small JavaScript hack so that you can translate Phonetic Hindi into your own language.

This is not for only who are foreigners, If you are Indian & still you have problem in understanding Hindi, here is Tool for you.


How to develop on your own??

This is a Mashup. I am using 3 different service.

1.Script Convertor

2.Google Translate API

3.YQL (a very useful platform for creating mashup)

To see the source code open the demo page and view source.

I have written only few lines of  of JavaScript to do this.


  1. I was gifted the most beautiful hindi god and goddess cards with mantras. I just wish I could find out how to pronounce themand what they mean. The translators I am finding consider them to be in English as they are not written in Sanskrit, thusly the translation given is the same as the entry I make. Perhaps you can assist me, I'd really love to add them to my meditation practice, but I'd like to be saying them correctly and know what I am chanting. Thank you for your time and consideration. Blessings of Love and Light! P.s. I am not tech savvy and don't know what API or YQL are or how to use them... your script convertor is helpful though-thank you!

  2. I think the same issue applies to some other languages like russian too.. thanks for your efforts in contributing to the linguistic community with this helpful script.
