Google+ Available In Hindi, But Why Doesn’t It Have Transliteration?

Google+, launched a couple of days ago (our review here), is available in 44 languages, including Hindi. It’s strange that it isn’t available in other Indic language, even though Google has done extensive work on providing both translation and tools in Indic languages. What’s caught our attention, though, is the lack of incorporation of Indic language transliteration tools with Google Plus: you can view basic menus in Hindi, but you can’t type in the language. This is exactly the problem that Facebook has.

We hope that Google will address the issue in future updates, as Google+ evolves, and also add support for other Indic languages.
