1) If you are in Pune/Mumbai try contacting the local CDAC offices.
2) If you are not in proximity of these cities, try CDAC's websites,
especially their sections on GIST and FUEL. I think the second one (fuel)
may have a separate website and they are dedicated to localisation.
3) You can make your computer dual-boot and install Hindi/Marathi versions
of Gnu-Linux running GNOME localisation of Hindi/Marathi or KDE
localisation of Hindi/Marathi. They have pretty matured/professional levels
of localisations.

Maybe Karunakar would like to comment here ?

thanks and cheers,
