India is a multi linguistic nation yet have common sacred/religious texts. But it is not an easy task to maintain all these scripts in all the Indian languages. "Parivartan" add-on converts the Indian Scripts in Indian/English language to various Indian languages. This facilitates maintaining the scripts in a single language and still reach out all Indian linguistic users.
Another interesting usage of this add-on: There are many people who talk/understand some Indian languages but cannot read those languages. In such cases, the text in an Indian language can be converted to English and could be read & understand conveniently.
This add-on converts the text in the text-boxes also, so this can be used to type the text in a language and then convert to any other preferred language while posting on social networks, blogs, forums or even writing emails.Usage:
Select the text on the web-page, right click and select the appropriate option from the "Parivartan" menu.Options:
1. "Indian/English(ITRANS)" option

2. "English (ISO 15919)" option converts the text from English (ISO 15919) to the selected Indian language.
