Tibetan input occurs in Wylie or with a Tibetan keyboard layout (you can for example use the Tibetan keyboard from "Iron Rabbit" (Lobsang Monlam) which is available in the Google Play Store if you don't want to type in Wylie transliteration). If you prefer wylie input then you can use the app straight away without installing any additional keyboards.

Common Problems:

This app needs to extract about 100 MB of dictionary data onto your device. This means that you need to have sufficient space on the internal memory of your device so that the app will work. If you have enough space but still encounter any problems when the applications starts up then please contact me and I will try to understand the problem that occurs on your device. Normally the app should work on all devices with Android 4.0 and higher but if it doesn't work for you then let me know. Some older Android devices have problems with showing the Tibetan font in the text field in which you are typing. In this case the only thing you can do is to change the application settings and tell the application to show the input text in Wylie transliteration instead of Tibetan script.

This is an excellent dictionary. The additions of Jeffery Hopkins, Tsepak Rigdzin, Alexander Berzin and other , mostly Gelukpa, translators to the standard Rangjung Yeahe Dictionary are really excellent and add a different perspective on many words. (The translators cited in Rangjung Yeshe are mostly Kagyü and Nyingma in background). Similarly, the addition of many Tibetan Language dictionaries is also excellent. I want to thank Christian Steinert for producing this program and collection.

This dictionary out feature is well. But, here is many mistake with both word meaning and spelling. So, it need more correction and approval. Otherwise, it may misleading to our young and new―head. By Ns,JRinpoxi.

This dictionary has got problems like in typing tibetan letters.. we have to be very carefull when we type words.. as one word mistakes makes the whole words up and down.. otherwise its good...

I couldn't translate even a single word. It always shows 'Failed to translate'

Simple, accurate and works offline also. No advertisements also.'
