iPlugin is an Web application development tool, used to develop interactive Indian language applications to be deployed over the internet or intranet.

Offering technology solutions, iPlugin 3 from GIST enables a user to realize the full potential of the Internet in the creation of static as well as interactive Indian language web content for front-end & back-end Internet solutions. Thereby, enabling communication in the choice of language of the user.

It is easy to enable existing English site for Indian Languages, without changing look and feel of the webpage.

iPlugin has two sets of components, one for the server side integration and the other for client (Web browser) deployment. The client setup is delivered to the client when the client machine accesses the site for the first time. The user is asked to accept a certificate while downloading and installing the digital signed files.

The client side components which plugin into the browser, enable existing HTML elements for Indian Language (IL) input : Input box, TextArea, Editable DIV, iFrame etc.

The second tool is designed for .Net (dot net) environments while the third is a Java suite which enables iPlugin to work in various environments like Linux, Solaris, Unix, or any OS supporting Java Run Time on the serverside.
