Word translation/transliteration software
ScribeMagic is language independent word by word translation/transliteration software
for all the languages that follows Unicode coding system. The translation is based
on editable lookup dictionaries. At present this software has translation/transliteration
dictionaries for English-Malayalam, English-Hindi and Malayalam-Hindi. With the
help of these dictionaries you can translate between English, Malayalam and Hindi.
The translation/transliteration is not limited between English, Malayalam and Hindi.
You can create your own lookup dictionaries with the help of the lookup dictionary
editor according to your need. You can add the translation dictionary of your own
language and translate the words in any database to your native language and from
your native language to any other languages.
For translation and transliteration, first it will search the dictionary for the
matching word and replace it with the destination language word. In the absence
of matching word it will break the source word into character clusters and searches
the dictionary with that and replace that with the matching character clusters of
destination language one by one. If it can't locate matching character cluster it
will break the cluster again into smaller pieces and search for matching characters.
At last, in the absence of character clusters it will transliterate character by
character. In case of translation/transliteration error you can edit the lookup
easily, because all these operations, source, destination language pans and lookup
editor are synchronized in a single window.
This software can translate several million records of databases such as voters
list, the Telephone directory, Name lists etc. currently in English language to
Indian languages in few hours. This will accelerate the adoption of universally
accepted Unicode coding standard in Indian language computing because; these translations
are in Unicode format. The User interface of this software is very simple, because
all objects such as lookup dictionary editor and source and destination language
for translation is implemented in a single.
Whenever you open Scribe Magic it will launch in the system tray of your computer
and load the most recently used language pair in to its lookup dictionary. Right
