From the very starting of localization of computer in Hindi language,
have felt the need of one style and convention guide, a guidelines which can
be treated as a reference point for Hindi language community working for the
localization. I have tried to collect and compile all the info and given all
these in formations in form of a guide named "Computer Translation style and
convention guide for Hindi." In a couple of days I will come more info on
it. Before that I want to share some points that I highlighted in the guide.
Fonts, Collations, Plural Forms, White spaces, Accelerators, Program Syntax,
Functions, Tags, Placeholders, Message Length, Numerals, Calender, Honorific
Usages, Acronyms, Product/Brand/Company Name, Keys Name, Abbreviations,
Legal Statements, Terminology, Punctuations, Units and Measurements, General
Spelling Guidelines, Anusvar and Chandravindu, Use of Nukta, Cardinals &
Ordinals, Indeclinable, Hyphen, Glidal ie Shrutimulak 'ya' or 'wa', Basic
Quality Parameters etc. are some of the area I have tried to cover in this
Please let me know if I am missing any important part of an ideal-typical
style guide in the above points.
