i was in search for an easy way to create some hindi pages for my website which was running on drupal then i heard about akindicplugin from Amit's Blog this plugin was for TinyMCE as this plugin was released under GPL i had a look into it then found i can also use it for my website and it would provide me the functionality i need it worked for me and so i am writing this How to Getting Hindi and other Indian Languages in Drupal What you need ?
1) Drupal with TinyMCE enabled
2) akindicplugin from Amit's Blog
Step 1) Extract the downloaded akindicplugin.zip to %drupalhome%/modules/tinymce/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/akindicplugin
Step 2) edit %drupalhome%/modules/tinymce/plugin_reg.php Append the following at the end of the file
$plugins['akindicplugin'] = array(); $plugins['akindicplugin'] ['theme_advanced_buttons3'] = array('akindicplugin'); return $plugins; }
Step 3) Now enable akindicplugin button for the editor from your website Administrator>TinyMCE and save the settings this would give support to additional 8 indian languages to your Drupal
I recommend not to provide this service to all your users create a role for this service instead.
This works only for Drupal 5
