If it's the *UK national grid* you want to transform into then look no
further than Grid Inquest http://www.qgsl.com/?product=gridinquest

"The Grid InQuest software provides a means for transforming coordinates
between ETRS89 (WGS84) and the National coordinate systems of Great Britain,
Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland."

"The Grid InQuest product uses a DLL containing the actual transformation
logic. This DLL is freely available for software developers to integrate
into applications, for more information see the programming manual available
for download with the software. The DLL is in use by more than 50 companies,
including the Ordnance Survey on their www sites as part of their online
coordinate transformation services."
