Marathi is an Indian language which is primarily spoken in the state of Maharashtra. Marathi is written in Devanagari script. That’s why Marathi text looks similar to Hindi text. A typist who is well-practiced in typing either of these languages, can type easily in the other as well. Marathi people love their language and it is no surprise that millions of native speakers want to type Marathi on computer and Internet.
Earlier when Unicode standard was not there, typing Marathi on computer used to be done with old fonts like Kiran, Saras and Lekhani etc. These fonts had limitation that Marathi text typed in these fonts was legible only on computers that had these fonts installed.
All this changed when Unicode was announced for Marathi. It has now become very easy to type online in Marathi as well as convert the old Marathi fonts into Unicode fonts (like Akshar).
To be able to type in Marathi on computer you don’t need to be a professional typist. TechWelkin tool for online Marathi typing translates English characters into Marathi characters on its own. That means that you will use the regular English keyboard and type using Roman letters. The above tool will automatically do English to Marathi translation. This translation is actually conversion of letters from Roman to Marathi script. This process is called transliteration.

Best would be to start using better browsers like Google Chrome or Firefox.
