Girgit, a tool for transliteration between the Indian scripts has been released under the GPL. It is worth investigating whether it can be integrated to the Konkani and Sanskrit Wikipedias, which have multiple writing scripts.[3][4] The word Girgit means Chameleon in Hindi.

This is a proposal for a new WMF sister project.
