Junaid has already (partially)* extended* this solution to Hindi, Marathi,
Sanskrit, and Bhojpuri wikipedias. You can see the respective wikipedias to
see the Transliteration solution developed by Junaid working there.
Among these Sanskrit wikipedia (http://sa.wikipedia.org) has the best
Devanagri transliteration solution since many people cooperated with Junaid
for its testing.
But currently *only Transliteration* solution is available in those
wikipedias. Rest of the solutions (for example, inscript) need to developed.
Junaid is working on it.
A transliteration solution is already available in *Kannada* and
*Telugu*wikipedias. But it is not advanced as the one developed by
Junaid. If the
respective language communities cooperate with the testing (of the
respective script) we can easily extend it to other Indian languages.
