    Google India Blog has a post reminding us of two Google search gadgets. You can embed these search tools in your Indian language website or blog.

    The search gadgets:

    (1) If you have a website in Hindi, Malayalam, Kannada, Tamil or Telugu, you can add Google's Indic Transliteration Gadget. This tool allows visitors to enter search queries in English and the tool will convert the English characters into Indic text.

    (2) The second tool is the Indic On-Screen Keyboard, which allows user to enter search queries in many Indian languages. For example, if your website is in Telugu, the tool allows users to enter search queries in Telugu.

    How to add these gadgets to your website:

    You can also download a Google Indic Transliteration WordPress Plugin

    I've never really used these tools before. Has anyone ever embedded these tools on their Indian language websites?

    Are there similar tools that you know about and can recommend? If so, please list them.

    Try this -> https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8731
    That is a firefox extension for Indic Transliteration. Works well on most websites.

    Ciao,

    In fact there is one more Language tool ( desktop as well as firefox addon)
    it is known as Lipikar. ( Lipikar: A Freeware Desktop Authoring Tool for Foreign Language Fonts by Santanu - Lipikar) As a browser add on when enabled you can type in diverse languages and scripts of India such as Assamese, Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kashmiri, Kodagu, Lahnda, Malayalam, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu etc., Lipikar can also be used with any other non-English language such as Baluchi, Brahui, Dzongkha, Nepali, Sanskrit, Sinhala, Tibetan, Tulu, Urdu etc. or with any non-Roman script such as Cyrillic, Arabian, Georgian, Greek, Mongolian, Hebrew etc. The best part is it is FREEEEEE
