Lakshadweep and Puducherry. It was declared a

People of Kerala enjoy the highest proportion of Internet access facility and Internet usage than in any other Indian state.The government of Kerala has initiated measures to improve computer and ICT skills of people living in Kerala through the Akshaya Project and the IT@School Project. These projects have played a major role in enhancing e-literacy by conducting training programmes in association with Kerala State IT Mission and various IT companies.Both projects aim at bridging the digital divide, providing training in basic computer skill and enabling availability of relevant content through the use of Malayalam language .The Akshaya Centres located all over Kerala have emerged as a major channel between government and citizens, services which now work as a backbone of the governance system in Kerala.
Thus, all activities of the program reach their goal through Malayalam Language and Malayalam Computing. Furthermore, Kerala also has the highest number of users and promoters of free and open source softwares. The better use of websites and information necessitates a translation service. Consequently, it's highly recommended that Google start translation services for Malayalam in Google Translate.
