Description from store By installing this extension, you agree to the Terms of Service at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/. Switch to typing in a different language with the click of the mouse, and switch back just as easily. The Google Input Tools extension provides virtual keyboards for over 90 languages, full IMEs or direct transliteration for over 30 different scripts, and handwriting input for over 40 languages. What's New? ✓ Fix popup suggestion bar position issue in iframes. e.g. Chat windows in Gmail. ✓ Fix enter key issue when type in input boxes inside iframes. Usage Instructions: When you first install the extension, click on the extension icon, then select "Extension Options" in the pop-up menu. A new tab will appear where you can select your preferred languages or input methods. The keyboards, IMEs or handwriting input you add to 'Selected input tools' can be enabled at any time from the extension itself. You can always return to this options page to add, remove, or change the order of your input tools. input tool, simply click on the extension icon, select the desired language tool in the pop-up menu, then click on any text box on the web page. To turn off an input tool, click on the extension icon and select the "Turn Off" option. To use transliteration, type languages phonetically in English letters, and they'll appear in their correct alphabet. Keep in mind that transliteration is different from translation; the sound of the words is converted from one alphabet to the other, not the meaning. For example, to get in नमस्ते with Hindi transliteration, type in n-a-m-a-s-t-e. You will get a list of Hindi words sound like namaste. Then, press SPACE to select the first suggestion नमस्ते. Latin IMEs are to help people type in Latin-script languages using the US keyboard. Features include automatic diacritics, spell correction, and prefix completion. To use Latin IMEs, type unaccented letters, and they will be corrected to a desired word. For example, type "franca" in French IME, "français" appears, and it can be committed by pressing TAB. If continuously typing "francais", "français" will be committed by pressing SPACE. To get all the candidates for "francais", press BACKSPACE. To use handwriting input, select the handwriting input of your desired language. Press trackpad or left click of mouse to hand draw a character on the pop-up handwriting panel. Select the character from the suggestion list, or simply press ENTER or SPACE key to select the first suggestion. Need help? Find a problem?

It does not currently assist with input inside of Flash applications.

  • (2021-09-03) Dr. Sanchika Gupta: I wanted to integrate maximum input tools for making my Gmail writing experience equivalent to outlook mail. Outlook mails are very handy tools in writing emails. It has different features equivalent to WORD page. But, Gmail does not have many fonts and features similar to outlook. Even, Google Docs have Calibri font but Gmail does not have that. Why do not you synchronize Google Docs features with Gmail. It will help in improved Gmail user experience.

  • (2021-07-14) Babu B: This extension is nice but it is not as good as android version. Please look into it. It would be better if the extension options page is more used friendly like listing different language inputs in specific language tab. THANK YOU FOR READING THIS FEEDBACK. I hope this will be better next time.
  • (2021-07-07) kunal Ghagi: nice
  • (2021-07-02) Kiran Neupane: Previous Google Input Tools App was much better and could be used anywhere. It's not that easy to use it in Nepali language yet as extension.
  • (2021-07-01) Russell Franklin: It just doesn't work. Installed for Japanese, but nothing happens when I activate it... then wait, I can randomly type in katakana! And now it's gone again... Super inconsistent. The exact same things happens for the input where I draw the kanji/katakana. The writing pad only appeared maybe 1/3 of the time? Just seems broken. A real shame.
  • (2021-06-27) Savanna Munson: I actually love this app, but being by Google, you would think it would work seemlessly with their products, however when I turn on this extension, I can't type formulas properly in sheets until I remove the extension. This really sucks as I'm a French speaking accountant who needs to type accents and use google sheets :(
  • (2021-06-26) Vaibhav Katiyar: it is a very nice extension for google chrome to write in any script when teacher asks to write words in hindi during class in chat box of google meet . it has also helped me in online classes and in hindi tests on my computer . Thank you google for adding this extension in google extensions website .
  • (2021-06-23) Jose Paul Sharon: The functionality was awesome. But it prevents chrome auto complete feature. Chrome is not giving sugggestions. I disabled all extenions and checked one by one and finally I found google input tools as the culprit behind it. Please fix it
  • (2021-06-09) jau 4: in Chinese (Traditional, Taiwan) pinyin, i can just type ' shrf ' to give out ' shu ru fa ' but in Chinese (Hong Kong) jyutping ,i cant do this . it need to type the whole ' shu ru fa ' please add this funtion to Chinese (Hong Kong) jyutping .

  • (2021-05-17) Jonas Matthiesen: Great tool. I use it to write in Japanese. But I quite often have trouble with it. It simply doesn't type anything when I use it. I tried everything and nothing works, and then out of nowhere it works again for some reason. Please fix this bug!
  • (2021-05-17) Đức Phương Nguyễn: too bad
  • (2021-05-16) Elisha: You can setup hotkey for quickly switching language. :)
  • (2021-05-10) Shing Chak Tse: Since I've used the trial version of Google Input Tools, I thought it'd be well to install this Chrome extension version. But, after I've set it up, selected my languages and turned it on, I've noticed a huge problem -- Where did the interface go?! When I switched to Cantonese input, nothing appeared on the page. There is supposed to be a small toolbar hovering around the page to let me switch between Cantonese/English, full/half character and Chinese/English punctuation. That's not a big deal at first, until I realized that when I started typing, no suggestions appeared next to my cursor! Turns out I had to guess what I'm typing. Luckily, though, what I've typed still showed up after pressing space and the extension version is as accurate as the trial version, but it's an experience crushing bug that'll stop me from using the extension version. Since the trial version's website looks out of date (look at the bezel on that tablet), I don't think this will be updated anytime soon. 我以前使用過 Google 輸入工具的網上試用版,因此我覺得使用擴充功能版的體驗會好一些。但是,當我設定好擴充功能、選擇好我的語言及開啟它後,我發現了一個重大的問題-介面去了哪裡?!當我切換到廣東話輸入法時,網頁上沒有出現任何內容。那應該有一個小工具列徘徊在頁面周圍,讓我切換廣東話/英文,全/半字元和中英文標點符號。起初這沒甚麼大不了的,直到我意識到,當我開始打字時,我的游標旁邊沒有出現任何建議的字!原來我要猜我在打甚麼字。雖然我鍵入的內容仍然在按下空白鍵後出現,並且擴充功能版和試用版一樣準確,但那是一個粉碎體驗的錯誤,阻止着我使用擴充功能版本。由於試用版的網站看起來很舊(看看那個平板電腦的邊框),我不認為這很快會被更新。
  • (2021-05-02) Æðel: Major problem with this is that it somehow doesn't work as intended on Facebook. The extension just keep messing itself up: sometimes I cannot type, sometimes it put the indicator to the beginning of a sentence without me clicking my left mouse button.
  • (2021-05-01) Awesome Tool works great keep supporting thank u
  • (2021-04-28) 陳姵妡: 推薦我根本不用的簡體中文,我不需要用外國發音來拼我的母語,還占了很大的版面又關不掉看了很礙眼
  • (2021-04-10) Abigail Yarbrough 言圓圓: I always have to reload my page because sometimes it freezes and it's pretty annoying but it's fine I guess
  • (2021-04-08) Samuel Skoog: Great app!
  • (2021-04-06) a quiza: Hi Marathi Mangal (Body CS) with Google Input Tools offline use on Windows 7Ultimate, which I was having on my laptop get uninstalled and now I am not getting its link to reinstall. Please give exact link.
  • (2021-04-03) palden Samkhar: please add a keyboard input for Tibetan like TCRC or Monlam thank you.
  • (2021-04-02) indeed: I would be typing on google slides and it would randomly stop working completely, and sometimes when I type words NOTHING would pop up. This app(if it worked correctly) would be great, but its clear that this is in its bata state.

One of the best online trading platform, Happy with their customer satisfactory result and Glad to have them as my broker. Thankyou ForexSP, glad to have you.
  • (2021-02-11) G. E.: Im ersten Augenblick verblüffend einfach, belegt aber während des Schreibens die Tastatur mit verkehrten Buchstaben oder lässt manche Satzzeichen nicht mehr zu. Nee, sowas brauch ich nicht. Die Erweiterung wird wieder deinstalliert.
  • (2021-02-04) Kislaya Kunjan: Very useful to type in Indic languages in their native script, but would be nice if it possible to type Indic languages in Romanized script [like the IAST scheme], where diacritics are used, for example: ā, ṇ.

    For some odd reason, the sounds beginning with y is not working, they all got replaced with j... like yen --> jen, yin --> jin. J sound words are all associated with z sounds je --> ze. I think part of the pronunciation key was mixed up with Mandarin pronunciation. The Y replacement with J is peculiar, but J with Z is more of a mandarin mix up.

    Hello. I have a problem with transliteration to Ukrainian script. For example, the letter "Y" is commonly used to write "И", but when I type "Y" I have no option to chose "И", or in many words "Y" is transliterated with "І" instead. The second question is, is there a possibility for custom definition of transliteration rules?
