Screenwriting in Tamil

Celtx is a very cool open-source screenwriting application, and since they invite you to localize it, I wanted to try doing something about it. The very patient Saravanan offered to help me, and am happy to announce that he has also integrated the TamilKey firefox extension with Celtx. Now I can use the Anjal keyboard I am so familiar with, to type in Tamil. Actual localization of Celtx will take as long as it takes to translate the menu items etc into Tamil. And that is supposed to be sappa matter!

Now when that gets done, it should prove invaluable to Tamil screenwriters. So once again, many thanks to Saravanan for helping out, and to Sidharth and Anon who also offered to help!

I couldnt find your email address.. so im leaving a comment in your blog. I got in touch with your cousin 'Kanna' and he adviced me to get in touch with you asap.
I was looking to complete my masters in Film Business. As of now I could only get three Universities which offered such a programme. This would be London College of Communication, University of Sunderland and Bpurnemouth University. Which would be the best bet? Moreover how is the media scene there for job hunting?
You could email to me at
Help would be appreticated
thanking you,
Shubham Kasera
