Hi all,

A few days back, there was discussion around ShortUrl[1]. I have made
another small tool(code[2]) which takes English Wiki article name and
redirects to the language Wikipedia. The redirection app is live[3].

interwikiredir.appspot.com/or/Chennai will redirect to Chennai article in
Oriya Wikipedia. We have also made this available as part of
tawp.inshorturl domain, hence
tawp.in/en/ArticleNameInEnglish will redirect to corresponding interwiki
article in Tamil. Building this into a mediawiki extension might be useful
since not all mobiles may support Indic input schemes and first step to read
an article is to type the URL!.

Feedback welcome.
