Every once in a while we receive or get to review some thing which makes Green and White so much worth for the time and effort that we put in to keep this thing up and running.
Yesterday was another such day, I received this link to review a side project that Mr Ghulam Akbar had developed based on google tools and in his spare time. What this does I will quote from his blog here
Dynamic Language Tools lets you type Urdu, Hindi, Arabic, Farsi and many other languages on any web-page, plus it also converts any of the these roman languages words on any web page to the corresponding phonetic language words. With this tools you can type comments or write blogs in your native language. You can also convert any existing contents like poems, comments and stories on the web pages to the your language
How you use it is simple, add it as a bookmarklet and you are good to go.
Two features i loved about this was
1. Able to translate by selecting a text from the site and translate it on the fly
2. Able to type in generating Urdu font from your browser in any text input area. I some times want to express in Urdu on blog posts of where the audience is inclined towards Urdu or content is around Urdu Adab I guess would make it easy.
Here is the video of how it works for web page translation
For start how about you use this to comment on this post :),
I did a small video to show how it works for input (I did not change any part of greenwhite comment system to make it work ) just used the bookmarklet to activate it ctrl+click on the comment box and wow.
Great job Akbar, keep it up who knows this hobby project becomes your main area of focus.
