Nepal’s Constitution declares Nepali as the official language and a fundamental element of national identity.
The Nepalese Constitution, Article 12 (1) states that “Nepali shall be the national language”.
Nepali is spoken by 91% of the population and is understood by the majority of people in Nepal.
It is vital to preserve this rich heritage for future generations and keep alive one of Nepal's most important links to its past, as well as a signifier of what may be one day a renewed sense of national unity for all Nepalese people.
The goal of this section is to introduce easy ways to type in Nepali using a computer or mobile phone.
The Nepali script is an abugida, which basically means that consonant-vowel sequences are written as one unit with the vowel inherent in the consonant, and vowels have no inherent letter of their own. The base letters for English characters are used and "k" and "kh" can be used interchangeably for ཀ.
Nepalese people use an unique keyboard known as "Kohan" which is a set of keys that are arranged in a way to make it easier for Nepalese people to type.
The Kohan layout is not the same as the English QWERTY layout. The Kohan layout has some letters of the alphabet in different places and some letters have two or three characters. This makes it difficult for Nepali people to learn how to type in English and other languages, but they can type in Nepali easily with this keyboard.
Typing in Nepali language is important for your career and personal life.
