My recent +Huffington Post piece on building text encoding converters that the ଓଡ଼ିଆ ଉଇକିପିଡ଼ିଆ | Odia Wikipedia community built on the foundation of the converters built by non-profit Srujanika. These converters are now helping a lot of Odia-language content flow on the Internet.
As proprietary and legacy encoding systems were so popular among the desktop publishing (DTP) operators, most Indian language media houses remained tied to their existing encoding systems even after Unicode was introduced. This led to editors, journalists, writers and many native language users having to reliable and intuitive way to input in their own language. For example, Unicode Odia resulted in a huge gap of Odia-language content online with users that depended on earlier, disjointed standards.
