Google Helps You Find a Girlfriend

Language should not be a barrier in the path of love. And Google understands that. And that's why they have introduced the new Google Translation IME with support for 14 languages.

An IME is an "Input Method Editor" and simply refers to software that lets you type in a language of your choice. Once you download the Google Transliteration IME (did I tell you that it's free and there's no signup required), you can type a word the way it sounds using Latin characters and it will convert the word to its native script. For example, typing "hamesha" transliterates into Hindi as : हमेशा

Google Transliteration IME offers several features focused on an improved user experience, including offline support, word completion, personalized choices, easy-to-use keyboard, quick search and several cool customization options. As a user types, a suggestion menu is displayed with alternatives and word completions. For example, as you type "googl" you will see five options from you can select the correct one.

It is currently available in 14 different languages - Arabic, Bengali, Farsi (Persian), Greek, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu and Urdu. This application enables users to create content or communicate in their preferred language online or offline and in any application of their choice. The Google Transliteration IME currently supports 32-bit Windows 7/Vista/XP. Google Transliteration is also available in Blogger, Gmail, Knol, Orkut and as a bookmarklet. You can also enable it on your website using the transliteration API. You can download the Google IME from here.

So don't fret about getting a girlfriend this Valentine's who speaks a different language. Cause now your love life is empowered by Google.

I used Google to find and communicate to my Ukrainian bride. But that was 8 years ago. We had to use a translator in the Ukraine and many are scams. I wish Google had this back then!

I am married to a german and I do not or hardly speak the german language. But would our relationship be at the point we are now, being married, if we had to rely on Google Transliteration IME? I doubt that. Just look at all the nice translation programs you can buy for lots of money and what stupid stuff comes out of those translations sometimes. No program, no software can do what the human brain does...THINKING LOGICAL. Thank God my husband speaks english very well because if we had to rely on something like Google Transliteration IME I doubt we would have made it from meeting online to being married. Google Transliteration IME might be a help, but like I said, it can't think logical.
Just my 2 cents
