Short Stories Now Available in Hindi On Story Time for Kids
Story Time For Kids, the leading mobile reading application for kids, now offers captivating short stories in Hindi. Over time, the stock of stories in Hindi is expected to steadily expand, while Bengali story books would also be launched.
February 10, 2014 (Newswire.com) - The little lovers of fairy tales from the interiors of India now have more reasons to rejoice. The lovely tales of Story Time For Kids - the top-billed mobile storytelling app for kids - are now available in Hindi too. The same reading fun - in a new language!
Story Time For Kids already had French and German versions, in addition to the regular English version, prior to this expansion. When contacted, the head of Teknowledge Software, the company behind this popular iPhone app for kids informed us that, presence of a Hindi version of the digital stories would help in reaching out to even more kids and parents within the country. At a time when most mobile app development companies are struggling to work their way through the linguistic barriers in the Indian markets, this move does come across as a potentially effective one.
The content creators and app developers at Teknowledge are leaving no stones unturned, to ensure that the Hindi stories on the mobile learning app for kids are a big hit (just like the English and French ones). Professional translators have been hired, to translate select short stories from English to Hindi, in the correct manner. Special instructions have been given to them, to use easy yet grammatically correct words and sentences - which the little readers would find easy to understand. Story Time For Kids was already a great tool for preschoolers to learn the basics of English - and it now seems that the app would aid in kids' Hindi-learning as well!
Apart from being included in the Story Time smartphone app for kids, the Hindi stories would be published in the form of books. The marketing department of Teknowledge Software has already started rolling out promotional plans, to advertise the story books - both online, and in collaboration with leading book stores across the country. The prices of the books are nominal and the illustrations and fonts are colorful and kid-friendly.
To stand out qualitatively from the other iPhone apps for kids, rigorous quality-standards and testing procedures are being followed, before the release of the Hindi stories (both in the digital and the text formats). Once the translated stories are received by the company personnel, they are being proofread multiple times, and necessary corrections are being made. The app, of course, is being tested for bugs and/or other problems. The touch features, in particular, are being examined carefully. Tapping on any Hindi word on the Story Time application for kids leads to its meaning being displayed, just as it was in the original English version.
At present, the collection of Hindi stories on this engaging mobile app for kids is relatively modest - but plans are in place to constantly translate and add more tales in the collection. In addition, decision-makers at Teknowledge mobile application development company have plans to come up with Bengali story books (not on the app, as of now) as well. It's refreshing to see a company not unduly clamoring for increase in sales in the global markets, and actually looking to connect with more young Indian readers. When the Bengali books come out, Story Time For Kids would be present in as many as five total languages (English, French, German, Hindi and Bengali (text only)).
Not every child in India has English as their first-language at his/her kindergarten. For those who need to have a strong base in Hindi from an early stage, regularly reading the Hindi stories on Story Time would surely prove advantageous. After all, it is not regarded as the best iPhone app for kids for nothing!
