Word
2000–in the newly released Microsoft Office 2000 SAE (South Asia Edition)–now
has support for Indic languages. However, this support is available only if
it’s installed on Windows 2000. Since Windows 2000 supports Devnagari
(Hindi, Marathi, Nepali, Sanskrit, Konkani) and Tamil scripts, Word 2000
also supports only these Indic languages. As and when Windows 2000 extends
support for other languages, Word 2000 will automatically support these
languages.

Word in Hindi has a number of
good features.

You must be familiar with the
auto-correct feature of Word–the one that automatically makes your “frmo”
into “from” and your “whihc” into “which”.
Well, the Hindi version too has a list of most frequently misspelled words
that can be auto-corrected.

HTML support

You can now
convert your DOC files into HTML without losing the formatting. This version
has added support to display Hindi in HTML. For this, your browser should be
IE 5 and above.

Number formats

We use numbering to make a
list of things, for page numbers, footnotes, etc. Now this numbering can be
done using Hindi numbers, vowel or consonant-based ordering, or by writing
the number in Hindi.

Date and time

This edition
of Word 2000 supports Saka calendar as well as the Gregorian calendar in
Hindi and English. The support for Saka calendar is available even in
English, provided the Hindi language has been enabled. You can choose a
calendar as per your choice.

Spell check

We all know
how much of a lifesaver spell check is, for all those red lines in your
document bring to attention mistakes that could otherwise have gone
unnoticed. Well, the Hindi version continues this support too, with a
claimed database of nearly 75,000 words and suggestions.

Find and replace

The find and
replace option is also available in the Hindi version. Using this feature,
you can save time by quickly replacing certain words, be it English or
Hindi.

Word art

Word 2000 SAE
now extends the word art option for Hindi text. So, you can use your Hindi
text in word art to give that special look.

Auto text

Auto text is
a way to store and quickly insert text that you use often. The Hindi version
has some auto text entries, which can be inserted automatically if the
language chosen is Hindi.
