What is eZiText?
eZiText is an intuitive language input tool which makes communication and
information devices simpler and faster to use. It consists of the Zi Core
Engine in conjunction with dynamic linguistic databases. Together, these
technologies enhance language entry by predicting words and phrases as people
compose them. In other words, it is yet another method of inputting text
with as little key-hits as possible - which is very good news to all the SMS
freaks out in mobile-land.
eZiText is a predictive solution. It enables the completion of whole
words with only one tap or less per letter. An average of only 4 keys are
required to complete English words. Other input methods need 7 hits and
standard multi-tap needs 14.
eZiText is designed to allow intuitive input in a way people find
natural. it guides the user to intended words without the inclusion of
confusing non-sensical word candidates. Zi adapts the intrinsic logic of
each script to any device, resulting in a user interface and input process which
is easy to use and learn: even for complex languages like Japanese and Chinese.
Zi's core engine is independent from its' language databases. This
allows the addition of languages and capabilities while optimizing memory
eZiText is offered for the following languages:

brought up as the most probable candidate.
