Indic communities don't need "help" but active "contribution" from people
familiar with en wiki. So, you have to think, act and become like a native
community member except for the fact that you are already aware of wiki
I am not aware of happenings in other wikis. But, I can give you many
examples of contributions in Tamil Wikipedia where the editor came from
English Wikipedia. If you faced specific problems, please feel free to post
in our village pump and I am sure the community will take the steps needed.
