Sinhala In Narayam

Yesterday (2011/03/01) I added two Sinhalese schemes, Singlish and Wijesekara, to Narayam. Now there available at translatewiki. Thus Sinhalese people can contribute more translations without depending on third party tools.

Narayam on Translatewiki

Few days before I added Naryam, an extension that helps to add various input methods to Mediawiki installations, to Mediawiki subversion repository. Then Roan Kattouw rewrote most of its code to use new ResourceLoader introduced to Mediawiki and jQuery. Also Roan made it to load input methods conditionally based on content language and current user p referenced language. So now it has better code structure and efficient working.

Then Gerard Meijssen proposed it to have at translatewiki. Once the translatewiki team found the extension working, they adopted it for that wiki. Initially Narayam supported Malayalam transliteration and InScript, Bengali Avro, Bengali InScript, Bengali National Keyboard, Tamil99, Tamil transliteration and Sanskrit transliteration schemes. Yesterday I added Hindi InScript, Sanskrit InScript. Kannada transliteration and InScript schemes also have been added now. So these all schemes or input methods are  available on transltewiki now.

Multi Script Write and Text Decoder

I have created a tool, originally it was developed to help me in developments going on to add writing tools for different Indian language Wikimedia projects, now I publish it for public as I think it would be useful for somebody in someway.

  • It will help you to write different scripts for different languages and each script can be written in  more than one way, like transliteration, InScript, etc. Some of the script writing schemes are not yet complete, it will gradually become complete. More languages will be added later. You can write specific script in specific scheme by selecting from the listbox given top of the page. Once you select a writing scheme it will dynamically load rules for that selected scheme from the repository.
  • You will be shown with codes of characters you write on the filed. Codes can be set to show in binary, octal, decimal, hexadecimal.
