CNET Editors' review
"Singlish" is a brand of English spoken in Sri Lanka that incorporates some words from Sinhala, the native Sri Lankan language, as well as other Asian languages. If you need a quick way to transliterate Singlish text into Sinhala, ZSriLanka Sindhala Language Pack is up to the task. This easy-to-use program provides both real-time transliteration and a Sinhala character map feature.
We'll be the first to admit that we don't speak Sinhala, so we can't vouch for the program's accuracy. What we can say, though, is that ZSriLanka Sinhala Language Pack has an intuitive interface that should pose no problems for most users. In the Singlish Mode tab, we simply typed English words into the Singlish Text Editor, and an adjacent pane labeled Wijesekara Sinhala Preview showed the corresponding Sinhala characters as we typed. We liked the fact that you can view the Sinhala characters in 14 different font styles, and that the text can be copied to the clipboard for use elsewhere. The Character Map Mode displays a group of buttons representing each character in the Sinhala language; clicking on a button types the character into the preview pane, while also displaying the equivalent Singlish letter in small box. The program comes with a Quick Start guide, but most people who understand the purpose of the program won't need it; we found ZSriLanka Sinhala Language Pack to be quite easy to use. Overall, we think this program is a great choice for anyone who needs to perform transliteration tasks between Singlish and Sinhala, and we recommend it.
ZSriLanka Sinhala Language Pack comes as a ZIP file. It installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal.
From SLMERC7 Concepts:
This software will convert your Singlish text into wijesekara sinhala text. So unlike other conversion utilities, you can simply change the font styles as you want. The software has been designed according to the standard which is used by the Singlish converters. If you are not farmilier with the singlish typing, you can understand the Singlish concept by going through the Wijesekara Character Map Mode which is available with the software. Also note that the ZSri Lanka Singlish Language Pack does not require any key man utility, because it can handle the problems in Wijesekara font typing.
