New Delhi: HCL Infosystems Ltd (, Indias premier information-enabling company, in alliance with Microsoft Corporation will be offering the multilingual proofing tool that supports nine Indian languages, with its Infiniti range of desktops, to government bodies, financial institutes and public sector undertakings.

The comprehensively designed nine Indian languages offered by the versatile multilingual facility are Hindi, Tamil, Kannada, Gujarati, Telugu, Marathi, Gurmukhi, Sanskrit and Konkani.

This innovative initiative to facilitate the regional sectors in local language computing validates, yet again, HCL Infosystems constant focus on the Indian mass market. The homegrown HCL Insys is not just the numero uno PC vendor in the country but a recognisable brand in the local sector.

The reason, says HCL Infosystems associate vice-president (marketing) George Paul, is the companys incessant attention to details that make a difference to the life of the common man. With HCLs strong presence in the regional sector, the local language computing is expected to have a considerable impact.

With the help of this unique multilingual proofing tool, users will be able to type in multiple keyboards, use auto correct, carry out spell checks, apply custom animation, save, name and give document passwords all in nine different Indian languages using Microsoft XP.

Additional features include smart tags, track-and-give comments, send e-mails, and sort and create databases. This breakthrough font technology, based on worldwide standards, is expected to deliver unparalleled user experience in terms of productivity, collaboration and integration.

Besides this, the bundle will also enhance personal, collaborative and organisational experiences, thereby leading to greater organisational productivity, access to more information, reliability, data recovery, security and integrated web-based solution.

Local language computing has always been a key investment focus for Microsoft to realise its vision of anytime, anywhere, anyplace computing. We are, therefore, happy to collaborate in innovative solutions such as the Indic-enabled PC from HCL Infosystems, as it takes the power of personal computing to the masses, says Microsoft Corporation India Pvt Ltd group marketing manager Sanjiv Mathur.

Adds Paul: The partnership between HCL Insys and Microsoft is prompted by the growing need in emerging and existing markets for a productivity tool in their local language to support the growing number of employees using a personal computer. Through this package, we would be able to bring together people, processes, content, and systems and help in increase productivity and reducing costs.

This latest foray into the mass market is expected to add to the already impressive record sales of HCL Insys, which was recently declared the top PC vendor for the year 2001-2002 by Dataquest.
