Transliteration Tool on Wiki in Punjabi need improvement
Open, MediumPublic


The transliteration tool in Punjabi needs some improvement.

  1. Every character has a halant(ਸ੍) instead of (ਸ) with it so we have to type "a" after every character. This increases the no. of keystrokes. We need some other method for the typing the conjuncts.
  1. Punjabi has only a few conjuncts so instead of a halant with every character we need some other method to type the conjunct character. Only three consonants are used as conjuncts; ਹ੍ as in ਨ੍ਹ = ਨ+ਹ੍; half rara - ਰ੍ as in ਪ੍ਰ = ਪ+ਰ੍; and half vava - ਵ੍ as in ਸ੍ਵ = ਸ+ਵ੍. Read more here

3. The default numerals should be 1,2,3 instead of ੧,੨,੩. We have a gadget if anyone wants to see the Gurmukhi numerals.

  1. If possible add a method to type full stop(.) in this method.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
