Dear Friends
You may have noticed that my postings appear in English.Not that I am an English fanatic. I am unable to type out the message in Tamil in my computer. Kindly enlighten me on the following doubts of mine.
1 Should I install a specific SW for scripting in Tamil.

2. Should typing be done in a specific format Say MS office or any other prescribed recipient.

3. Post-typing , how to transfer the matter to that forum page of ours , where it should appear.

4. Kindly, keep in mind that I handle computer by basic familiarity and not by appropriate training. So, simple ,step-wise suggestion would help me in making statements in Tamil. Please do not fear the onslaught of mine in Tamil. My only desire is to appear in greater clarity.

Hope someone comes to my rescue. If you desire sending a mail across please note maduraman@rediffmail.com [ in my mail ID 'h' is not used].

Thanking you in anticipation.


Regards K.Raman Madurai

dear Prof

not that i am an expert with Tamizh writing in forum , but would like to share how i do

i do it through Yahoo transliteration
if you go to google search you will get this and in the window you select the language as tamil, and start typing in english with phonetic sound

for example ms viswanthan will be typed as Em ES VIswanathan
vijayakrishnan would be typed as vijayakirushnan

but you will e used to it soon

enjoy

you may get better suggestions from parthavi , ram, murali who write more often in tamizh

Dear Prof,

The term 'not an expert' applies to me too. I do the Tamil typing thro G-Mail. I open my G-Mail account and start composing, opting for Tamil language. After trying out many sources, I have found G-Mail to be the best and easiest (same method of typing to be used as explained by VK). Once you finish typing, just copy the text and paste it into our Forum.

Regards,
Venu Soundar

The following method is by far the BEST way to write Tamizh in Computers

It has already been posted in our forum 7 years back...

http://msvtimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=269

For convenience, I'm copying and pasting here:

==============================================

Dear All,

There are many ways to write in Thamizh in Forums. The below method is one of the easy and straight forward methods.

Here we go:

1) Click (http://www.mayyam.com/tamil/ekalappai20b_anjal.zip) to download eKalappai Software ("ekalappai20b_anjal.zip").

2) Unzip and Install the software by clicking "ekalappai20b_anjal.exe" present in the downloaded zip file.

3) Press "Alt + 2" to enable Thamizh Writing.

You can see Tauveltesoft Keyman 6.0 icon in the bottom right corner of the computer. As soon as you press "Alt + 2" you can see the icon turning into அ. "Alt + 1" will bring back the English Typing.

4) Come to the text editor of the Discussion Forum, either "Post Reply" or "New Topic"

5) Start typing in Thamizh ("Thanglish")

IMPORTANANT TIP: Please remember to save your typings periodically, as the session may expire after some time and you may lose your typings when you click "Submit". So before hitting "Submit" save copy all the typing "Ctrl+A" and "Ctrl+C". Open Notepad. "Ctrl+V" to paste. Save. While saving choose the "Encoding Type" as "Unicode"

Few Examples:

எம்.எஸ்.விஸ்வநாதன் - em.eS.viSvawAthan

பொன்னெழில் பூத்தது - ponnezil pUththadhu

Tips:

ஸ்-Capital "S"

ந்-w

ஃ-q

ஞ்-nj

ங்-ng

etc.

தமிழில் எழுதி மகிழ்க!

Dear Prof,
I use this website
http://code.google.com/p/english-to-tamil-live-typewriter/

You can type in English on the left. The Tamil fonts will appear on the right. You can just select and copy using the right click of your mouse and paste it in the form.

A few hints.

For ராம், you may type raam or rAm
For ஈ, type ii
For ஏ, type ee
For ஓ, type oo
For ஔ type au
For ற, type Ra
For ள, type La
For ங, type nga
For ங்க, type ngga or ngka
For ஞ, type nja
For ஞ்ச, type njcha
For ழ, type za
For ந, type wa
For ஃ, type q
For ஸ, type S (sa will transliterate into ச)
For ஸ்ரீ, type sri or Srii (Sri will give ஸ்ரி)

The instructions are given in the webpage itself.
You will learn some other nuances, once you start using it.

It is better to copy and paste after typing a few lines, so that you will not lose what you have typed, since you can't save anything here.
You can save by pasting the matter to a wordpad file.
