Research and development on using ICT in local languages commenced formally by a State sector organization at the Council for Information Technology (CINTEC) in the late eighties. Later, with the setting up of the Local Languages Working Group at the ICT Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) in 2003, all that was needed – i.e. OS support, fonts, keyboard layouts, keyboard drivers, standards, locale information, terminology etc – were addressed. Local language initiatives were also carried out at the Universities of Colombo, Moratuwa and Jaffna etc.
