Should say this is handy. Good effort.
Typing Indic text on mobile for URL sure is a bit complicated right now for
the normal user. This is useful.

A few days back, there was discussion around ShortUrl. I have made
another small tool(code) which takes English Wiki article name and
redirects to the language Wikipedia. The redirection app is live.
will redirect to Chennai article in
Oriya Wikipedia. We have also made this available as part of tawp.inshorturl domain,
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!.
