If you are interested in translating any app other than displayed here in Santali then you can make request to respective project managers to continue translation activities. 

Latest Information: 

  • Youtube added Santali language as an option in it's website, means you can select or change your uploaded youtube video language to Santali language, upload subtitile in Santali language. Previously this language was absent for which people were not able to get their right content.

History - List of Smartphone that support Santhali:

This Act may be called the Constitution (Ninety-second Amendment) Act, 2003, An Act further to amend the Constitution of India. [8th January, 2004] which led Santhali to be called among the 22 languages of India.

Ol Chiki script was added to the Unicode Standard in April, 2008 with the release of version 5.1. The Unicode block for Ol Chiki is U+1C50–U+1C7F: All modern device support unicode. It means Ol Chiki got its basic reading support from Android 2.2 (API level 8). Below it it will definitely not support this script.

We know that Santali Ol Chiki is supported in Window's from Window 8.1 as default(no additional software for viewing) not 8.0. They added support in 8th August 2017.

In Apple, Native Ol Chiki writing keyboard started its support from 19th September 2019 for the first time in iOs 13 onwards.

Tizen supported Ol Chiki from 19 July 2017 from Samsung Z2 onwards, with a small FOTA update. Before that Ol Chiki was not supported in Tizen ex. In Samsung Z1 their was no reading support for this script. 

KaiOS supports Santali language, some apps are also tranlsated in Santali language ex. try Wikipedia app from KaiStore.

Google keyboard added Ol Chiki support in 26 April 2017.

According some sources i found almost all latest android phone support Ol Chiki but by system support very few mobile namely some feature phone(Keypad) lephone (lephone K1) - Reading support, Jio phone - Reading support and device system support for Ol Chiki, karbonn mobile - Reading support to support Santali Ol Chiki script.

According to Olchikidr.blogspot(post) post they mentioned that Ol Chiki was supported in their Intex aqua star 4.2.2 which is android version 4.0. So Santali might be supported from very beginning, i have never heard before it phone supporting Ol Chiki. It may be supported. Also till now no ROM supports changing language from within the device settings. So, we will also work on translating ROM in Santali language.
