SMC is a volunteer community of users has been active since October 2002 and developers who has banded together been working to create free-software solutions for enabling provide Malayalam language usage tools that work on computers. Essentially, the purpose all layers of the community is computing including and not limited to enable a person who knows only Malayalam rendering fixes, fonts, input mechanisms, translations (localization), text-to be able to effectively use a computer-speech engines, dictionaries, spell checkers and other indic script based language computing specific tools across operating systems. We are the upstream for Malayalam is the native language of the people from the State of Keralafonts and tools for popular GNU/Linux based operating systems such as Fedora and Debian. We also maintain localizations for popular Free Software Desktops (GNOME/KDE), Indiapopular applications such as Firefox and Libre Office.
"എന്റെ കമ്പ്യൂട്ടറിനു് എന്റെ ഭാഷ" SMC is perhaps the slogan of the organizationlargest language technology developer community in India and collaborates very closely with government and industry, which translates and serves as an advisory to "My govermental/semi-govermental organizations that determine the future of Malayalam language for/on My Computer"computing devices.

We are not just developers though, we also have linguists, journalists, Wikipedians, writers and all sorts of language users among us. Over the years, SMC has evolved to accommodate developers focused on other Indic script based languages such as Kannada and now provides a generic web based Indic language computation framework called SILPA .(http://silpa.org.in). This effort aims to provides language computation tools for the spectrum of Indic languages rather than focus solely on Malayalam.
