India is a great country. It is the second largest country of the world (population wise) and even number of internet users are increasing day by day but still there are very few websites in Hindi. What is the reason for this?
We felt that there are many reasons for this. First and foremost is lack of motivation, people do not feel excited about Hindi website. Moreover, Indians find it very difficult to write in Hindi and technology in India is also not Hindi friendly. Even when few companies want Hindi website they generally make hindi website with the help of fonts, which only works when the user have that font installed on their system. Another serious fact is that most web design companies in India are not aware of unicode encodings and all.
Typing in Hindi is always a problem for Indians. What if you could type “Kaise ho bhai sahab” in your usual chatting style and the words actually got converted automatically in Hindi character “कैसे हो भाई साहब “? We have now made that possible with our WordPress India software. Now you can easily publish your thoughts, experiences in Hindi. It’s good news for Indian bloggers that they can write their blog in Hindi and show all their thoughts, emotions in Hindi very easily. Web application creation in Hindi is also very easy now. Below are some frequently asked questions about our WordPress India project.
