Write in phonetic English text and the Q2A App will convert the text to native Amharic script in Geʽez letters, which means you don't need an Amharic keyboard. The Q2A App is inspired by Oromo language (Afan Oromo) phonetic writing based on Latin Qubee alphabet. The rule-based phonetic writing provides an algorithm for the transliteration process in real-time. Q2A User Interface (UI) is entirely in Afan Oromo. If you prefer bilingual English/Afan Oromo UI, there is a related App by the name Q2S which is identical to Q2A except for the additional English UI. There is an integrated Help which will help users master phonetic writing in no time. There is also a setting for adjusting the font size from small to very large characters to allow customization to match screen size and user viewing preference. WHAT THIS APP IS NOT: This app is not a word-processor and not optimized for heavy-duty editing of large texts. It's intended for editing short text snippets that you can post to social media and the like. The latest version will allow you to save as many as 10 snippets and if necessary you can break up a large text this way. It is our intention to refactor the app for large text editing in the future.
