Frequently Asked Questions

  • How to type in Sinhala using English Keyboard - QWERTY keyboard?

    To start typing in Sinhala, just type a word as it is pronounced in English. This would then be transliterated into Sinhala. For E.g. if you type "simhala yaturu liyanayakaṭa mama kæmatiyi" then it would be transliterated into “සිංහල යතුරු ලියනයකට මම කැමතියි”.

    If the transliterated word is not what you have expected - either click on the word or use the backspace to get more choices on a drop-down menu.

  • What is difference between Translation and Transliteration?

    A translation tells you the meaning of words in another language. For E.g the translation of "I love Sinhala typing" would be "සිංහල යතුරු ලියනයකට මම කැමතියි" in Sinhala. You can use various online tool for translating word, sentence and phrase from English to Sinhala for FREE. Some of the popular translation tool are Google Translator, Bing Translator or use our own Sinhala Translation for FREE.

    On the other hand, transliteration software works on phonetics. A transliteration doesn't tell you the meaning of the words but it helps you pronounce them. What you type in Roman script is converted in Sinhala script. For E.g. typing "mama obaṭa adareyi" will be converted into "මම ඔබට ආදරෙයි".

    Therefore, we can say, transliteration changes the letters from one alphabet into the similar-sounding characters of another alphabet. This makes it the simplest and fastest method of typing in Sinhala without practising any Sinhala Keyboard. You can either use Google Input Tool for FREE.
