Default Microsoft to launch Bengali interface

Microsoft to launch Bengali interface

November 24, 2004 12:43 IST


Software giant Microsoft is working on developing a Bengali-language interface and expects it to be ready within a year, a company official said on Wednesday.

"Presently, three Bengali characters are missing in uni-code. We are working on it and are likely to incorporate it within six months. Developing other Bengali interfaces in other application software may require six more months", said Faycal Bouchlaghem, business development director for emerging markets, Microsoft Asia-Pacific.

"Microsoft believes in localisation of its products in over 60 languages. The wider technology localisation makes its products more user-friendly worldwide", he told the 'Daily Star' newspaper.

Bouchlaghem said Microsoft, which opened its Bangladesh office on Monday, would work with the government and the private sector to improve intellectual property rights practice to help the IT sector in the country.

Microsoft has in recent days undertaken an expansion of its community and economic development programmes in Asia as part of its global campaign to improve access to computers.

Asia is particularly important to Microsoft because the region is expected to be the biggest source of growth for the IT industry over the next 20-25 years.

So much jhamela. It was so easy on ubuntu to have the Bangla interface up. Just one problem... I really dont have a clue about Bangla Unicode keyboard input layout, and ideally I'd love to have a phonetic descriptor like Avro keyboard for linux.

Why dig this up?

Vista Bangladeshi Bangla interface will be done by the end of this year. Office 12 will take a little longer.

********

In more important news:

Banglacricket has already launched Bangla interface for BanglaCricket forums.

Choose Bangla from the language choice menu at the bottom-left corner of the forum.
