With the aim of helping more users in India leverage the power of the Internet irrespective of their English language proficiency, Google on Tuesday announced several new tools including one to make more content in Indian languages go online.

At present, the amount of online content in Indian languages is only one per cent of what is available in English.

To make online content relevant for more Indian users, Google announced a project called Navlekha, a word derived from Sanskrit meaning “a new way to write.”

This project comprises a tool that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to render any PDF containing Indian language content into editable text, making it easy for print publishers to create mobile-friendly web content, the Mountain View, California-headquartered tech giant said at its annual Google for India event here.
