Writing in Bangla has never been easier!

[Tarek]( “”) -

Have you tried Shabdik? Please check it from here I am sure you will love it more than avro as I do. Regards

Nipon -

Hi, Thanks for the info. I will surely check it out (registered at the site already and waiting for the confirmation mail so that I can download the 30-day free trial). Before I lay my hands on the program, I can say that it is a paid software and though one may argue that US$10 is not a big amount I would say that I am not ready to pay to write in my mother tongue when I don’t have to pay anything extra to write in English!

Tarek -

Hmm, you are fooled by the pirated softwares. You can write freely without commercial products like using Linux. But if you are using windows or others then you must not forget the price to buy the OS/Office just to start computing. Remember, if you are willing to argue for a free staff I would rather argue for free computing. Why people would be required to pay for computers at all. These are like basic living requirement now. Can we get free computers from market? If not why it is costly? Is it due to the materials we are paying? It is indeed the intellectual property for which we are paying. Material values are what you will get while you are willing to dump your machine. Now the concern is if someone is willing to provide a good piece of software they are to invest a huge amount of intellectual effort which we Bangalis should learn to pay. Otherwise we will be a poor nation and remain poor forever. P.S. Dont forget to check you junk mail folder for activation code as sometimes those are classified as junk by the email clients. Regards

I am afraid you misunderstood me. I told we don’t have to ‘pay extra’ to write in English, taking the OS environment for granted. I do understand the serious effort and hard work programmers put in to make a good software and admit that for a quality product we should be ready to pay. And no, I am not fooled by piracy.It is indeed sad that piracy is a big problem in our subcontinent :( but thankfully I buy the softwares I use :). I also have Linux installed in my machine. I didn’t want to hurt you, I did not know you are the developer. Just thought you are one user. Kudos to you for developing Shabdik.

the google transliterate program is very good - but there’s no font-option, which makes it sad. Also, you can’t work offline.
