Option 1.2: LinguaScribe

In addition to LinguaWin which supports Asian languages, users who have difficulties with Asian alphabets or Asian keyboards may opt for LinguaScribe. LinguaScribe is an exciting innovation in the processing the foreign languages. Non-Latin alphabets or writing systems have always posed a challenge for users and programmers because of their larger repertoire of characters, shapes and diacritics that have to be mapped on keyboards that were never designed to handle them. Their mappings are often crammed, cryptic, irrational and not user-friendly. LinguaScribe™ changes all that. It requires only a simple phonetic representation of the text. Thus " namaste " (Hindi for hello or good day) is typed as said in Latin characters and, with one key press, LinguaScribe transliterates the Latin characters to the required script which can be: ‹Hindi Gujarati ‹Punjabi or Bengali. LinguaScribe files can be saved as native LinguaScribe files or as RTF files which can be exported to other programs such as Word Perfect or Word for Windows. Files can also be pasted directly into these applications. LinguaScribe comes in various modules: 1-StandardLinguaScribe supports Hindi, Sanskrit and Phonetic£100.00 2- Standard LinguaScribe Plus Gujarati, or Punjabi, or Bengali is £120.00 each. 3- LinguaScribe de Luxe ( with all six languages) is £185.00
