16.     Multilingual Capability in Tally.ERP 9

Did you know that Tally.ERP 9 supports multilingual capability that lets users speaking different languages work concurrently with ease? Users from different locations can view and print the same reports in their own familiar localized language anytime they want.


Think of a user entering transactions in Hindi at a branch office, another user viewing the same voucher in Marathi at Head Office and another user printing out the same voucher in Gujarati at a different branch. This concurrent multilingual capability that enables multiusers speaking different languages, to work at the same time, is a much needed breakthrough in a business process. This capability, especially useful for a business running in a multilingual society like India, is provided by Tally.ERP 9 and it is here to break the language barrier among business staff.

Currently, Tally.ERP 9 supports 9 Indian languages (Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Punjabi), Hinglish, Bahasa Meleyu, Bahasa Indonesia, Arabic (Saudi Arabia), Urdu and English (U.K). The multilingual support in Tally.ERP 9 works for data entry and displaying/printing of reports.


Tally.ERP 9 has another extended multilingual feature which is the support for phonetic keyboard. Using this option, users can enter words in different languages using English alphabets on the keyboard.
