Word or two about our Nepali tool:

Our FREE online Nepali typing software uses Google's transliteration typing service. It provides fast and accurate typing, making it easy to type the Nepali language anywhere on the web.

After you type a word in English and hit the space bar key, the word will be transliterated into Nepali. You can also hit the backspace key or click on the selected word to get more options from the dropdown menu.

The process of transliterating Nepali to English is very quick and allows unlimited characters and words to be transliterated. Moreover, when you hit the space bar, the text will be saved on your computer automatically. So, in case of a browser crash or on a subsequent visit, the previously transliterated text will be recovered.

Our Easy Nepali Typing tool is really simple and easy to use, as you don’t need to remember a complex Nepali keyboard layout or practice Nepali typing for days to be able to type fluently in Nepali.

Once you have finished typing, you can email the text to anyone for free. Alternatively, you can copy the text and share it on social media such as Facebook or Twitter, in a blog, comment, or paste it into a Word document for further formatting and processing.

If you have any suggestions or feedback, please leave a comment on our Facebook page. Finally, and most importantly, please like and share our page on Facebook with your loved ones.

Nepali is spoken by more than 17 million speakers in Nepal, Bhutan, Burma and neighboring parts of India. Originally known as "Khas Kura", it was historically the language of the Khasa kingdom which once ruled the foothills of Himalayas.

Nepali is written with the Devanagari alphabet, developed from the Brahmi script in the 11th century AD. It contains 36 consonants and 12 vowels. In addition, it has its own representations of numbers that follow the Hindu-Arabic numeral system.

  • 12 Vowels: अ, आ, इ, ई, उ, ऊ, ए, ऐ, ओ, औ, अं, अँ
  • 36 Consonants: क, ख, ग, घ, ङ, च, छ, ज, झ, ञ, ट, ठ, ड, ढ, ण, त, थ, द, ध, न, प, फ, ब, भ, म, य, र, ल, व, श, ष, स, ह, क्ष, त्र, ज्ञ
  • Full Stop (पूर्ण बिराम): ।
  • Numbers in Nepali (नेपालीमा अंकहरू): १, २, ३, ४, ५, ६, ७, ८, ९, ०

Typing Nepali is very easy on our website. You can start by typing in Latin letters (e.g, a, b, c etc), which will then be converted to characters that have similar pronunciation in the Nepali Language.

To give you an example, if you type in "Namaste" it will be converted to "नमस्ते".

Additionally, you will get a list of matching words on the dropdown menu when you press backspace or click on the word.

Our Nepali transliteration also supports fuzzy phonetic mapping. This means you just type in the best guess of pronunciation in Latin letters and our tool will convert it into a closely matching Nepali word.

Nepali transliteration is a process of phonetically converting similar-sounding characters and words from English to Nepali. For Example, you can type in "Tapai kasto cha?" in Latin to get "तपाईंलाई कस्तो छ?".

You can use our online Nepali input tool to transliterate unlimited Nepali words for FREE. Our online software is supported on both desktop and mobile devices such as Apple iPhone, Xiaomi Redmi Note, Samsung and more.

Nepali translation is a process of converting word or sentence from one language to Nepali and vice versa. For instance, typing "Nepal is the birthplace of Lord Buddha." in English will be translated into "नेपाल भगवान बुद्धको जन्मस्थल हो।".

Our site uses machine translation powered by Google. You can use our online software to translate English to Nepali, Nepali to English, Hindi to Nepali, Nepali to Hindi and many other languages for FREE.

1. Nepalese languages

Once in Nepal, communities remained completely isolated by steep valleys, high mountains and by thick forest, leading to the evolution of many distinct languages, given as 92 in the 2001 census but now put by ethnologue at 124 distinct living languages. This increase in number seems mostly related to distinguishing dialects within larger groups previously thought to belong to a single linguistic community. Ethnologue’s linguistic map for Nepal, reproduced in Figure 1, shows the hot spot of languages scattered across the country.

The Linguistic Map of Nepal

Fig 1. The Linguistic Map of Nepal.

If we take Trosterud’s suggestion that at least those languages with more than 16,000 speakers should be written, we find that we should expect all languages down to and including Dhimal should be written; this is 28 languages, just under one third of the languages, in line with the proportion in the population of world languages as a whole. Table 3, lists these 28 languages plus two others, with relevant characteristics extracted from Ethnologue. Note that 8 of them have much larger populations across the border in India, with one of these, Maithili, the second largest language of Nepal. This leaves 20 Nepalese languages, only one of which, Nepali, is used in written form in all walks of life and can be considered fully literate; however most of them have at least some limited use in writing.

2. Nepalese writing

However only four of these purely Nepalese languages have any significant tradition of being written:

  • Nepali, historically known as Khas, Parbatiya and Gorkhali, with 11,053,255 speakers in 2001, has been written in Devanagari, the script used across north India and in particular for Hindi, for around 300 years.
  • Newari, with 825,458 speakers in 2001, is known as Nepal Bhasa within the linguistic community, and has been written for over a thousand years in a number of scripts.
  • Limbu with 333,633 speakers in 2001, has a traditional script Sirijanga which was probably derived from Lepcha writing. It is claimed to have been invented in the 9th century and then revived in the 17th century by Te-ongsi Sirijonga, and then revived again in 1925 when it was formally named “Sirijanga”.
  • Lepcha (also known as Rong), with 2,826 speakers in Nepal but 48,000 in Sikkim in India, is written in a script evolved from the Tibetan script, which tradition claims was devised in the 17th or 18th centuries (Wikipedia 2012b).

Ethnologue only reports limited literacy for Newari and Limbu, not surprising since these languages were suppressed by successive Nepalese governments from the late 18th century onwards until 1990. While the writing of Limbu and Lepcha was probably only ever used for special cultural and religious texts, Newar writing was used for a wide range of purposes until the overthrow of their regime by the Gorkhas in the mid 18th century.

Note that cross border languages, and particularly Maithili and Bhojpuri, also have their own mature literature and may be written in their own distinctive script; for Maithili the script is known as Mithilakshar or Tirhuta, for Bhojpuri it is Kaithi.

Indic writing including Devanagari and Bengali has been printed in movable type since around 1800, with the type evolving and being simplified over the centuries. When computers became used for writing and publishing, the encoding of Devanagari and other Indic scripts was undertaken in India, leading to the Indian Script Code for Information Interchange – ISCII. Work had been proposed to include Devanagari within the then established standard for computers, ISO 8859, as part 12, but this work was abandoned expecting to adopt ISCII’s codes into ISO 8859. However ISO 8859 was in turn superseded by Unicode, which included a code block for Devanagari and other major Indic scripts from the start, with the code blocks adapted from a 1988 version of ISCII. One significant difference between ISCII and Unicode was that in ISCII all the scripts of India had been unified within a single table, with the different scripts selected by appropriate font, whereas in Unicode these were dis-unified into separate code blocks.

The encoding of Limbu was added to the Unicode Standard in April 2003 with the release of version 4.0. Limbu was introduced to the standardisation process by McGowan and Everson in 1999, and a proposal was written jointly by Boyd Michaelovsky and Michael Everson in 2002. Michaelovsky is a linguist who has done considerable field research among the Limbu in Nepal learning about their writing in context, appealing in the proposal to both examples of writing and to the phonology of the spoken language. Even so there have been some discussions since then about missing characters, and in 2011 Pandey proposed two additional composite characters, though there is a case for introducing the virama instead.
