About BanglaPad:
BanglaPad is one of the open-source projects of the Center for Reasearch on Bangla Language Processing, BRAC University, funded by PAN Localization Project grant from the International Development Research Center (IDRC), Ottawa, Canada. The project began in August 2005 with two research programmers working full time. The initial goal of this project is to develop a platform-independent, rich text editor capable of editing Bangla. On the next level this editor will be used to implement new features that will come out as a product of ongoing Bangla language research.

The current version of BanglaPad includes the following features:
1. Platform independent (Current version tested on Windows and Linux)
2. Edit Bangla and English text in the same document
3. Rich text editing with pictures and tables
4. Export document to HTML
5. Support different character encoding including UTF8 and UTF16
6. Bangla Spell Checking
7. Bangla search/replace
8. Printing formatted document
9. Three different skins for the editor
10. Built-in keyboard driver for easy Bangla typing (No need to install a keyboard driver)
11. Customizable Key-Maps for Bangla
