Topic: "Formatted Nepali Text Conversion"

Venue: Yala Maya Kendra, Lalitpur, PatanDhoka
Date: Friday January 9, 2009
Time: 4 P.M - 5 P.M


Presentation of a new Open Source tool for i.a. converting mixed Nepali documents using Nepali fonts/from to Unicode.

The converter is in several ways revolutionary in comparision to what exists right now:

VERSATILE:
- Supports formatted (OpenOffice) documents natively, and HTML, RTF through plugins.
- All formatting (font size, underline, italic,...) is kept intact.
- Not limited to text, but also spreadsheets, presentations etc can be converted.
- Mixed text with Nepali and non-devanagari (English) text can be converted (i.e. documents using mixed fonts Preeti, Arial, Kantipur, Courier, etc are converted correctly, with all formatting intact)

USER FRIENDLY AND EASY:

- much more user friendly than existsing tools. F.eks. user does not need to know about or specify text encodings
- clipboard conversion
- conversion tables are kept in user friendly spreadsheets (one for each font), which an (educated) user can maintain even with no programming skills.


Jacob Nordfalk is a Danish programmer and assistant professor in CS, is living in Nepal, Kathmandu and have i.a. written 3 books about Java programming.

The project is 80% complete and available from Nepali Converter . It will be a big step forward for Digital Nepal... if volunteers are found to take over and finish the project before until April 2009, when Jacob moves permanently to live in Denmark.

The talk will present how the (Java) converter is working. Knowing some Java is fine, but there are other activities (transliteration schemes and font conversion tables and quality assurance/testing, use case analysis etc) where just general computer knowledge is required to contribute to the project.

Comments

  1. It is indeed a good news. Personally I am also very much interested to use free and open source software, as they are "legally free".

    These days I am trying to figure out the uses of "Flex", and Open office org, which I think,are still more sophisticated than the paid ones.

    I hope and wish the new converter will add a new height in the development and usability of of Nepali language in computers.

ब्लगिङ का ३ वर्ष

यी ३ वर्षहरु कति छिटो बिते पत्तै भएन । केयु मा आफ्नो इन्जिनियरिङ सँगै सुरु भएको ‘आकारपोष्ट’ र ‘आकार’ ले ३ वर्ष पार गरेर चौथो वर्षमा प्रवेश गर्दैछ । याहु ३६० बाट केही पहिले नै सुरु गरिएको ब्लगिङ अनुभव, धेरै ब्लगहरु मा प्रयोग  गरेको थिँए । इन्टरनेट तथा ज्ञान को अभाव मा ती पहिले का ब्लगहरु कता हराए थाहा छैन तर अन्तिम मा ‘आकारपोस्ट डट ब्लगस्पट’ मा आएर खास ब्लगिङ सुरु भएको थियो । के पाइयो ?ब्लग का माध्यमबाट धेरै साथि बनाउने र उनीहरु को विचार बुझ्ने मौका पाइयो । साथै, आफूलाई पनि लागेको कुराहरु निर्धक्क लेख्न पाइयो । अहिले को युग मा सबैभन्दा ठूलो कुरा भनेको परिचय भन्ने कुरा रहेछ । कतै कुना मा लुकिरहेको मलाई, मेरो आफ्नै नाम ले कमैले चिने पनि, आफ्नो विश्वविद्यालय को सेरोफेरो मा ‘आकार’, ‘ब्लगर’ को नाम ले चिनिएकोछु । साथै, अनलाईन मा पनि केही ले मलाई ‘आकार’ भनेर चिन्नुहुन्छ । मलाई लाग्छ, अहिले सम्म पाएको ठूलो कुरा नै यही नाम हो ! सायद म यो नामलाई आजन्म छोड्नेछैन, अनि सकेसम्म ‘आकारपोष्ट’लाई सदैव निरन्तरता दिने प्रयास गर्नेछु, यही ‘आकार’ नाम राखिराख्न को लागि ! कोही कोही भन्छन्, मिडिया पढ्नु पर्ने …

Shirish Ko Phool : Review & Download

One of the finest book ever written in Nepali literature....Shirish Ko Phool and one of my personal favorite.

I have read this novel over four times or say five times..and each time I finish the novel I feel pang and it hangs on my head for so many days. Why guilt is so painful that made such a strong woman called Sakambari to suicide..or die…??

The novel has a wonderful language..the simplest of all. When I had read it for the first time..to tell the truth that I hadn’t really understood the novel, I felt the love story in it and I could not understand the passion in the novel.. But this day I may say I am able to figure out the passion and the feelings of the author..

I really appreciate the wonderful story, the plot the real setting, the real characters…and the situation of the novel till it ends. The pain of running away from the feelings and passion. When the Suyogbir says.."Ma glass ma bhagchu” ( I forgot the line exactly…). The feeling is that we run away from pain…because…
