The Planning Commission had already granted a major project in the area of translation to the Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), Mysore under the title ‘Anukriti’. The translation website titled Anukriti: Translating India was designed to function as a translation service and information site in all the Indian languages. The idea of creating such a website was conceived by three institutions devoted to the development of Indian languages - Central Institute of Indian Languages (MHRD), Mysore, Sahitya Akademi and National Book Trust, New Delhi. .

A total of Rs 59.64 lakhs was allocated for this project during the 10th plan period. Under the Anukriti project, as planned; the following has been achieved:

  » A translation facilitation website, www.anukriti.net, has been launched and it has been updated and documented on a continual basis all these years.
  » Three years’ issues of an online translation journal called ‘Translation Today’ have been brought out so far.
  » Translation database and a National Register of Translators are being regularly updated.
  » There has been some preliminary groundwork on English-Kannada machine aided translation package.
  » Catalogues of translation publications obtained from major publishing houses are being put on the site.
