Hey guys, I’m going to solve one very common problem faced by many in this article, “the problem of writing/typing in different languages easily over internet“. In the article here I’ll provide simple guide to solve that common/general problem too by using Google Input Tools.
Back to old times when I started using computer in my school I wasn’t able to understand English language in depth. I was continuously searching for some tool using which I can get it translated into my mother tongue language, Hindi. Unfortunately I didn’t find any good tool but due to it I learned English.
By writing my old story, I wanted to share a common problem with you and every computer or internet user is facing this problem. If you’re a traveler or occasionally travelling to different country having different language then you will find lot of difficulties in using and understanding that new language.
Lots of options
If you search on the web then you’ll find many software and tools which will help you out in translating languages but when it comes to typing in different languages online, nothing works well. I found few tools but none was impressive and then I tried one Google tool called “Google Input Tools”
