Type in hindi using english keyboard in google style

Today I came across google transliteration ime which allows user to type in hindi using standard english keyboard. Unlike google transliteration it is a offline application and it runs in background to allow users to use this input method in notepad,MS office or any other word processing application.
After installing it from here you can toggle betwen input methods from language bar (which canbe activated on right clicking task bar>toolbars>language bar)and fluently write in hindi in most of appliations.So cheers messaging in hinglish wont go in vain.You can even search the highlighted word by clicking google button in top-right corner.

You can even use it on web as shown here...
Highlights of the application are:
> Offline support
Dictionary based word completions
Single click web search for highlighted word
> Onscreen keyboard
> Manage macros

Google Transliteration IME is available for 22 different languages - Amharic, Arabic,
 Bengali, Farsi (Persian), Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi,
 Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Russian, Sanskrit, Serbian, Sinhalese, Tamil, Telugu, Tigrinya and Urdu.
