How to install WP google Language Transliteration plugin?
You can install this plugin like any other wordpress plugin. Unzip the contents of the downloaded zip file into your `/wp-content/plugins/` directory and activate it. That is all.
You will find a language drop-down getting added on to your wordpress admin pages, namely “Add New Post” and “Add New Page”.Simply choose the language of you choice and start editing the content phonetically in English script. Every word gets automatically transliterated, upon pressing the space bar, on your keyboard. Note that this is not the same as translation — it is the sound of the words that are converted, from one character set to the other (Roman to Devangiri), and not their meaning.
This plugin also adds a language selection drop-down to your comment form, thereby letting your visitors to comment in languages of their choice!!! Find below a few screenshots.
This plugin makes use of Google APIs to integrate transliteration to wordpress.Currently the Google APIs expose only five languages for transliteration.the plugin will automatically support more languages including Marathi, Bengali, Gujarathi, Nepali and more as soon as Google exposes APIs to all those languages.
