Convert Roman Hindi Text into Devanagari Script

Looking for a software tool to convert Roman Hindi into Devanagari script? Quillpad is good at converting Hindi written with English characters.

Today a friend of mine asked me if there is a tool available that can convert Roman Hindi (i.e. Hindi language written using Roman characters) into Devanagari script? In the world of Hindi typing, it is one of the most frequently asked questions. I always type directly in Devanagari –so I never felt the need of any such tool. But if you have received a lot of Roman Hindi text and you want to convert it into Devanagari –you will definitely wish for an automated software tool. And if it could be free, wouldn’t it be great?!

At first, I thought that such a tool may not exist because there is no popular standard for typing Roman Hindi. Everyone types the way they are used to with (for example main, mein, ma, me –they all are possible Roman spellings for a single Devanagari word!)

TechWelkin also publishes useful information about using Hindi on digital devices and Internet.

But there is actually a good tool available for this work. However, it is as good as your Roman Hindi!

Quillpad editor is good at converting roman English text into Devanagari Hindi. Because there is no standard for writing roman Hindi, the tool may make mistakes if you provide it with a really badly written piece of roman Hindi text. But in most cases it makes a good conversion.

You can simply copy the roman English text and paste it into the Quillpad editor. The tool will gradually convert the script. Once automated conversion is over, you may have to make necessary corrections manually.
