Technology Development for Indian Languages, Government of India

http://tdil.mit.gov.in/news.htm

http://tdil.mit.gov.in/apr_2005.htm

Transiting from catch-up to competitive phase ICT is the enabling technology for productivity enhancement and socioeconomic development.

There is sprawling digital divide between nations basically due to non-affordability of IT appliances and non-availability of requisite computing facility – fonts and software tools – in local languages.

Conscious efforts are being made through UNESCO in this direction. Certain nations have also initiated their own programmes to develop information
processing tools and applications in their languages.

India has taken a major initiative towards ensuring ICT in local languages for rapid socio-economic development and participation of people at large.
With this backdrop, the national mission on  ‘Technology Development for Indian Languages’ promoted development of basic information processing tools and linguistic resources for Indian languages through academic and government
supported R&D institutions spread over the country.

There are 22 officially recognized languages and 11 scripts in vogue in India. One script may be used for more than one language. Hence, India is a unique country with multilingual, multi-script environment.

Although with her talented manpower, India has emerged as pioneer in Information Technology, with the ability, to handle turnkey projects from abroad at lower cost, higher accuracy and at faster pace.

However, purchasing power as compared to developed nations such as USA is 1/15. In India illiteracy persist at about 34.6% and literacy in English is less than 5%.

This necessitates support for R&D in the focused areas to develop basic
information processing technologies and consolidating and packaging them in user friendly form and releasing them to the masses for free-use. This will greatly promote people’s participation in the process of using this technology and developing innovative products and services.

Besides, the activities towards preparing for knowledge based society would be through the projects such as cross lingual information access, multilingual search, voice-enabled query system, etc. Report on the release of fonts and basic information processing tools for Tamil and Hindi entails list of various tools
and linguistic resources being available for free use. Similar releases will follow for other languages. ELITEX-2005 showcased the multilingual products and services under the theme “Grass root applications using ICT”.


There is lot more in the open domain which needs to be searched and integrated appropriately into user-friendly tools/ products for free use in the multilingual environment.

UNESCO downloads covers the free downloadable software on UNESCO website under different categories such as Operating System, Digital Library, Development Tools, Productivity Tools, Science, etc. Identification of such tools
and integrating them into user friendly products and services for mass use in developing countries is desirable.

Prof. R.K. Joshi, highlights the issues about Font Designing and Font Technology in the context of complex Indian scripts in great detail in the article “Indian Language: Font Designing and Font Technology”.

The article on “Smart Fonts” discusses various issues related to smart font such as what is Smart Fonts, what are different smart font formats, what is Graphite, why was Graphite developed, how is Graphite different from OpenType and other complex script technologies?

“LaTex” tool is a powerful macro-based text formatter written by Donald Knuth, and is popular in the scientific community. LaTeX is the de facto standard for the
communication and publication of scientific documents. This is in open domain and can be used for multilingual publication.

The article on “Digital Library of India” describes various activities like digitization of books, manuscripts, magazines, journals, etc., and development of Digital Library tools like Cross-lingual Information Access, Multilingual Crawler, Multimodal Interface for physically challenged, Automatic search Indexing
tools, Multimodal authoring tools, Text summarization, Folk songs search and retrieval techniques undertaken at different  centres like CDAC Kolkata, IGNCA Delhi, IIIT Hyderabad, IIIT Allahabad is covered. Greenstone: a suite of software for building and distributing fully-searchable, metadata-driven digital library, digital library collections, and features of ABBYY FineReader 7.0 Professional Edition, optical character recognition (OCR) system, with high-recognition accuracy and format retention facility are also described. These basic technologies will enhance IT applications in local languages and facilitate the country transit from catch-up phase into competitive phase.

We would like to find out what are the positive things that are developed by these FOURTEEN centers in different languages that are being used by people of INDIA.
 
Did these centeres solve the problems of Localisation of Languages in INDIA ? What was the General Direction given to these centeres when money was FUNDED to these centeres ?
 
Does the DIT has any signed documents o these FOURTEEN Centeres ? If YES, Can we have a copy of that please.
 
I hope I get reply for my questions about RCILTS.
 
Thanks
Sincerely
 
V. M. Kumaraswamy
