Jaipur IT co beats global peers to offer e-mail ID in native language
Ever wondered why you cannot get an e-mail ID in your native language? It’s because Office 365, Rediff, Yahoo and their ilk don’t support IDN (international domain name) e-mail services. But that’s history.
Now, governments, corporations, communities or individuals can have their e-mail addresses in languages like Hindi, Bangla, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi and other regional languages, thanks to the innovations of the Jaipur-based Data Myxgen Technologies Pvt Ltd.
“This a first in the world. What the global tech giants have not done, we have achieved that providing a unicode complaint e-mail server helping us to break the language barriers. After the government of India introduced .bharat (in hindi script) two years ago, we are the first to pioneer the technology to host the domain and offer e-mail addresses in regional languages,” said Ajay Data, founder & CEO of Data Myxgen Technologies.
The company is capitalizing on the Centre’s initiative to increase digital literacy for which it had rolled out bharat domain.
“Apart from being a technological innovation, the e-mail service will help Central and state governments bridge the digital divide. Any scheme directed at large segments of population can be better communicated to the masses in their own languages. That’s why I see a big opportunity for this new service,” added Data.
Data said the service can be expanded on a global scale as many countries even though prefer local languages in their communication don’t have native e-mail addresses.
For more than 13 years, XgenPlus has been a leader in the e-mail market-place providing next-generation email platform to companies of all sizes.
