  4. ఆహ! ఇంత సులభంగా తెలుగులో వ్రాయగలుగుతున్నందుకు ఎంతో సంతోషంగావుంది. చాలా గొప్పపని చేసారు గూగుల్ వాళ్లు. ధన్యవాదాలు గూగుల్! ఈ వుపకరణం యొక్క లింక్ ఇచ్చినందుకు ఇందిరకు కూడా ధన్యవాదాలు!

  9. Type “Vishnu” in the field and see what the transliteration is.

  10. Cool as an alpha concept, but try to transliterate the folowing in Hindi:

    “Bhabhi Ji,

    Aap kaise hain? Asha karti hoon ki aap yeh jaan kar khush honge ki Google ab hindi bolne laga hai.”

    Look at the failure rate in something this simple, that has many common words, using widely accepted transliteration spellings.

    Common names such as Suresh and Shanti don’t work either. I do hope this will get better with time.
