I know malayalam language. But I don't have typing speed in malayalam. How can one type malayalam in English? E.g.: if I Type "MALAYALAM" then it should appear as malayalam in malayalam language. How is it possible?

You can use Malayalam phonetics applications or websites. There are so many Manglish websites and applications are available in online

for example vanmaram online English Malayalam dictionary
