Arabic Writer is an easy to use application designed to enable you to convert Arabic text to its equivalent Unicode text, so that programs that don't support Arabic can accept Arabic input as Unicode.
How does the Arabic Writer work?
While some programs don't support Arabic/Hebrew characters, almost all programs support Unicode, which is a universal charset that includes almost every character of every language. But, as in most Western languages, it's left-to-right oriented, that's why when you try to type Arabic letters in Photoshop, it appears like you are writing backwards. So, all we need is a program that re-arranges the Arabic letters in Unicode. That's exactly what the Arabic Writer does.
Here are some key features of "Arabic Writer":
· It doesn't need a pack of special fonts (as in some similar
· programs), that's because most of the Operating Systems out there have fonts that support unicode like the Arial font for example.
· It supports Multiple User-Interface Lanaguages, English Letters, Symbols, Parenthesis, Arabic and English numbers, The use of multiple lines and the special (Laa) character.
· It can convert back the generated text to its origin if it was processed again in the same manner.
· It's very easy to edit the program by simply editing the HTML file, no need to recompile the code.
· It has an on-screen Arabic Keyboard to support systems that don't support the Arabic language at all.
· It's portable, and it's very small in size.
