The set of computer programs developed at the Systems Development Laboratory, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT Madras, India, go by the name IITM Software. The software permits the development of applications supporting multilingual user interfaces in all the Indian languages. With some applications, users will also be able to interact with a computer in their own mother tongue. The IITM software is useful for teaching people about computers and also get trained in their use, directly in their own mother tongue.
The distinguishing aspect of the IIT Madras software is that the Multilingual issues are handled at the level of the application itself and so support within the Operating System is not called for. By taking this approach, the IIT Madras team has been able to provide a useful set of applications for data entry, printing and processing of text on a variety of computer systems. Data prepared on one computer may be moved to other systems without the need for special conversion utilities.
Almost all the multilingual developments in the world today, seem to go in the direction of providing support within the Operating System to handle the specific languages of the world. The IIT Madras team has observed that while such an approach may indeed work, getting a common system to accommodate all the Indian languages is not going to be easy. Providing user interaction on a system by writing applications which depend both on the platform as well as the language is going to result in too many variations across platforms. Accomplishing the same at the level of an application not only eliminates system dependent programming but will actually provide a consistent and uniform user interface across all systems.
IITM works with the following file extensions:
Note: You can click on any file extension link from the list below, to view its detailed information. The list of extensions used or otherwise associated with the application may not be complete, because many common file extensions on our website, such as jpg (pictures) or txt (text files), can be opened by a large number of applications, or are too general file format. However most, if not all directly associated file extensions should be listed with its appropriate program. Although its likely, that some file extensions may be missing from the list of associated file extensions with the application, yet they can be opened, be part of, or otherwise be associated with the program.
