India is a multilingual country with as many as 22 scheduled languages. Computer technology breaks the language barrier and bridges the gap between various sections of the society through easier access to information using their respective languages and hence, language computing becomes central to the exchange of information across speakers of various languages.

Technology Development for Indian Languages (TDIL) program initiated by the Department of Information Technology (DIT), Government of India has the objective to develop information processing tools to facilitate human machine interaction in Indian languages and to develop technologies to access multilingual knowledge resources. Department of Information Technology launched another major initiative called National Rollout Plan to aggregate these software tools and to make these available through a web based Indian Language Data Centre (ILDC). This activity is being executed in close coordination with CDAC, GIST, Pune. Under this, user-friendly software tools and fonts are being made available free for public through language CDs and web downloads for the benefit of masses.

The availability of these software tools, fonts and resources in local languages at no cost is intended to motivate general public to use ICT tools and technology in their day to day work like Word Processing, Presentation preparation, Spread Sheets preparation, Web Page Surfing & Designing, Messaging etc. in local languages. Further, the consolidated availability of linguistic resources and tools at one place will help the researchers to carry out their research in a smooth and efficient manner.
