The idea of "Hayadar" was born a while back when writing Armenian, in Armenian Letters, was not accessible. I'm talking about the time when the Armenian keyboard wasn't embedded in any operating system & we couldn’t dream about writing in Armenian on our phones.
After many attempts & various discussions with many people specialized in both Tech & Armenian Literature I realized that the idea itself wasn’t that unique, that many attempts were made & failed, and because of the complexity of the Armenian Language, this isn’t feasible.
And then came the “eureka” moment! I came up with a programing logic that made things possible. A “good enough” version was developed, put to test, improved & launched. This was Hayadar.com beta
After a short period, it came to my attention that in Diaspora, every region transliterates words differently. Let alone the merged influence of Western & Eastern Armenian.
The algorithm was improved & Hayadar v 1.0 was launched.
Then came Hayadar v1.1 with more improvements & all the words were correctly spelled.
Since then the project got a few & minor updates, mainly new words were dumped into the system.
And now, it is the time for Hayadar.com v2!
With more than 200,000 correctly spelled words, I believe Hayadar is in a stage to move to the next phase of the project.
Today, I start working on Hayadar Armenian Keyboard for mobile devices. HAK will transliterate Armenian words as you type in Latin.
One important & must-have feature of this keyboard will be the ease to switch between Transliterating Armenian, Armenian & your system language. This is critical.
Your support will help make HAK a reality faster.
