Well, I don't know if this qualifies as "language hacking" but it is VERY cool!!!
So, I've come across a couple separate programs that are pretty awesome.
(1) The first will take a .tiff image of original Sanskrit, Hindi, Devanagari, Bengali, or other language script and process it into editable text in the original script. This software is called Tesseract.
(2) The second is a website where you can submit a text file (a few other file types are also supported, such as .doc, .xml, .html, etc.) of original Sanskrit, Hindi, Devanagari, Bengali, or other language script and it will output the transliteration in Roman characters.
Like I said, very cool programs! I've used them for Bengali stuff a few times. Definitely saves some typing time. Also, with #2, I understand that if the original script is 100% correct, then the output transliteration will also be 100% correct.
