Indlinux is a project that attempts to localise tools used under Linux and other free software environments into all Indian languages. Indlinux is a combination of the words India and Linux.


The languages currently aimed at include Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Oriya, Telugu, Kannada, Punjabi, Gujarati and Bengali. Support for most languages are ready with a Bengali distribution Ankur Bangla, Tamil being included with quite a few Linux distributions with almost complete support and Hindi localization is also 90% complete. More languages are being pushed into mainstream distributions like Red Hat Linux which recently released Fedora Core 3 with complete support for Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, and Tamil.[citation needed] There has been consistent updating of language related packages into other distributions like Mandriva, SuSE, and Debian too through this group of volunteers.
