EasySinhala for English to Sinhala Transliteration, A Firefox add-on

This is to facilitate Sinhalese friends who use Firefox.

If you are not familiar with the Sinhala keyboard! Or you don’t have the proper technology to type Sinhala in your browsers! Don’t worry. Now you don't need to spend time on searching to find mapping Sinhala keys..!!

All you need is to start typing Singlish ("ammaa”) with EasySinhala and it will show a tooltip with the transliterated Sinhala word ("අම්මා"). Then when you press spacebar the English word you typed will be replaced by the Sinhala word on your textbox.

Now EasySinhala version 1.2 is released (on 25-12-2010)

I hope this will help you all...

If you couldn't read Sinhala words in your browser
please install proper Sinhala Unicode from:

  1. nice job brother..i still have problems typing words like "pathum" ( i expect thu to be like ku) "mage"

  2. how do we type in sinhala

  3. @ Lochana
    I think you have not correctly installed Unicode in your computer. Please do so.
    You can get a good guide to install Sinhala Unicode form

    and refer my guide to get the correct combinations.
    You can find the mappings by right clicking anywhere in your page then select "EasySinhala"-> "Some tips..."

  4. To enable and disable EasySinhala quickly
    you can add a short cut button.

    Right click on the menu-bar (at the free space next to Help menu)
    then select "Customize.." you will get a dialog box with lot of buttons, fine the EasySinhala icon drag and drop that anywhere you feel comfortable (recommended place is just after the address-bar).
    That's it your ready to go.

  5. You did this add on in Professional way.......! I like your add on and now my life is easy. Thank you very very much.

    Good luck.

  6. @ Chathuranga Bandara

    ට "Ta"
    ඩු "Du"

    To get more help check the "Some Tips..."
    But I think these ඩු is not included there, I'll add that in the next release

    Thanks for the reminder :)
