It’s common that users tend to use phonetic English in their chat box or in comments on Facebook. It’s not different in other messengers’ too. We have different languages in India and lots of your friends may be from other parts of the country speaking different languages. So when you see some comments of your friends in phonetic English, you may wish to convert them, right?
For example, I can’t understand comments like “tor mukh ta bhalo bojha jachhe na?” on my friend’s post. Because friends from the same locality converse mostly in their local language. So these types of phonetic English you can come across on Facebook, if your friends are from different place speaking different languages.
But you find any reason to change any of your friend’s comments or chat in phonetic English, Google Translate can come in handy.
