|CK Technologies has pioneered language technologies in India and have made great strides.
With only 5% of the Indian population speaking English, CKT saw the need to bridge this digital divide by empowering them with the technology that would be in their own familiar language.
To begin with CKT developed a bilingual (Tamil/English) word processor, which was welcomed well and saw premier institutions in India like IIT Madras to forge a strategic relationship. Since then, CKT has developed a full fledged Bilingual Office Suite which presently supports Tamil and Hindi. Shakti Office is being used in several banks, central government, state government departments, ngo's and rural kiosks.
Besides Shakti Office, CKT actively provides consulting to State and Central Governments, CKT is also part of the consortium of Premier Institutes like IIT Madras, IISc, Bangalore in developing Handwriting Technology for Indian languages.This project is funded by Department of IT, Government of India.
