    It is some Unicode font.

    I dunno, but I think Windows XP's Notepad and earlier don't support Unicode Hindi properly.

    If there is an option below in Save As, try saving in UTF-8 encoding.

    hmm.. i found on net

    using google transliterate for Hindi when not installed
    Got copy-paste to work even on a machine where 'complex fonts' were not installed, using the tips given at this forum post:

    This is happenning because applications such as "Google Indic Transliteration" use hindi font mangal. Though windows xp comes preinstalled with Mangal Hindi font, one need to ENABLE Hindi (asian layout) support through Control Panel to able to edit documents in Unicode Hindi font like Mangal. Legacy Hindi fonts like Krutidev do not need this configuration.
    Editing a word doc using mangal font won't be possible until asian language support is configured.
    You can overcome this problem through one of the following way:
    1. Use WORDPAD instead of MS WORD.
    2. copy hindi text from "Google Indic Transliteration" and paste it on the word doc now change the font of pasted text to "Arial Unicode MS" if you have one installed.
    3. install indic from XP Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> Languages -> Install files for complex script and right-to-left languages (including thai). For editing you need to goto Details... and add Hindi (or other indian language) keyboard layout.




    finnaly :D its working in WORDPAD - Hindi font is MANGAL

    Mangal Mangal ho.

    btw, install Ubuntu 12.04. Doesn't need anything to mess around.

    Plus, it has a beautiful keyboard layout for Hindi which is easy to learn - "Bolnagri". Transliteration se tez typing.

    Gujarati, Punjabi, Tamil etc. also supported. But typing layout is difficult for these.

    Use this url Google Translate, this lets you phonetically translate (You type in english as you speak in hindi).
    As said by Rockstar11, copy the translated text, paste it in MS Word and select "Arial Unicode MS", and then save it. I've been using this for quite sometime (since google supported phonetic typing, no it shows no option for that), and you can save it as PDF using Microsoft Save as PDF.
