Hi @RaviC, thanks for taking the time to report this! Please help me understand this request correctly:

Note that the Transliterator extension (which is MediaWiki-extensions-Transliterator) is not used on Wikimedia sites (and as it seems to be unmaintained software I don't expect that to happen soon, see T22246).
Also, could you explain how this request is related to the Babel extension?

Is this task maybe instead another subtask of T32759: Languages that need a LanguageConverter implementation (tracking) in the MediaWiki-Language-converter functionality? See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/mediawiki-language-converter/ for the description of that functionality. In that case, T11802: Automatic script conversion in Sanskrit language and T105121: Provide Latin-Devanagari-Kannada language converter for Goan Konkani could be slightly related when it comes to the scripts.

Hi there. Yes, you're right. I mistakenly tagged the wrong extensions.
