Mobile web browser firm – Bitstream Inc. today announced the first complete mobile browsing solution to fully support Indic languages (Indian Language), specifically nine languages spoken as a first language by an estimated 1.3 billion people living in India and the surrounding regions.

This first of its kind solution for handset manufacturers and mobile operators is built upon the BOLT cloud computing browsing platform and includes the BOLT mobile browser with Indic language user interfaces, the capability to perfectly render Indic text on a Web page, and the ability for end users to input Indic text into the browser.

In addition to English, the BOLT cloud computing browsing platform now supports the following Indic languages Hindi (India’s official language), Bengali, Gurumukhi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati, Malayalam and Oriya.

BOLT is available in JavaME (also known as J2ME) and BREW, and can be used on mobile phones of all types, including those phones without native Indic language support.

The BOLT Indic solution perfectly renders Indic text on a Web page, and allows users to scale text to larger or smaller sizes, copy and paste text from within a Web page, and interact with the content such as clicking embedded links or filling in Web forms.

Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, CEO of Bitstream said “Now with the addition of Indic language support, Bitstream is introducing the mobile Internet as it was intended to be seen to millions of new users in India and surrounding regions.”
