Hi FrontlineSMS Community!
FrontlineSMS now supports Hindi, but when you use the Hindi that is installed on your computer (Computer Panel > Regional and Language Options > Hindi), you need to learn a whole new keyboard map to type. You can find the map just by doing a google search, and it looks something like: http://tinyurl.com/hindi-keyboard-map
For example, to write "pooja" in Hindi, you would have to press the keys "h-t-p-e."
Learning this whole new set of keys is probably difficult if you are not already familiar with it.
But I found a desktop download that let's you type in Hindi phonetically. (As in to write "pooja" in Hindi you actually type those letters!) I've only been able to find the Windows version, but you can download it at: http://tdil.mit.gov.in/download/hwiter.htm. It is very intuitive!
I've tried typing in another Indian dialect (Marathi) and it worked, just not as easily as with Hindi.
This phonetic way will be helpful to FrontlineSMS users in India if they are already familiar with English.
Good Luck and feel free to give feedback!
