Hi moderators, I'm wondering when translating Tamil words/phrases on this site, if I should use the standard Indian Tamil form of the standard Sri Lankan Tamil form? Most of the time the two forms are the same. But there are some situations where they differ (in specific words or perhaps even the whole phrase).

I personally know the Sri Lankan form, and the resources I have available to me (family) would translate the Sri Lankan form for me. But I do know that universities that have Tamil courses teach the Indian form.

Thanks.

I did not know there was a difference. For now, I would suggest using the one you are most comfortable with, since you are the only one that is translating any of them yet (which I greatly  appreciate!). When we have more people that can also translate, I am sure there will be a discussion on the best way to handle it.

Thanks!

I would suggest doing Indian Tamil, only because it's more spoken and used in most media. Although Sri Lankan Tamil sounds very beautiful and I think is closer to Classical Tamil.
