Roman Script to Arabic Script
The SIL Converters software provide the framework to convert your texts from Roman script to Arabic script.
This document is not a manual of SIL Converters or the TECkit mapping language but attempts to highlight some
principles that need to be considered when converting text from Roman script to Arabic script.
This package provides tools through which you can change the encoding, font, and/or script of text in
Microsoft Word and other Office documents, XML documents, and SFM text and lexicon documents. It also
installs a system-wide repository to manage your encoding converters and transliterators (TECkit, CC, ICU,
Perl, or Python-based, as well as support for adding custom transduction engines).
Encore2Unicode — E2U is a command-line utility for
Windows that can examine a font built using the Encore font system and create a draft
TECkit mapping table for converting data using that font to (and back from) Unicode.
Unicode Character Properties
Various files from the Unicode Character Database (6.1) compiled into an Excel workbook.
Unicode 5.1 Latin and Cyrillic
characters – sorted
PDF documents with tables of Latin and Cyrillic characters from Unicode 5.1 sorted in Unicode Collation
Algorithm default order. Useful for finding characters in Unicode.
This is a short walkthrough on using the Unibook Character browser. The Unibook Character browser is a small
utility for offline viewing of the character charts and character properties for The Unicode Standard.
http://rishida.net/tools/conversion/ — Unicode Code Converter is a chart that allows you to
convert text to Unicode codepoints, UTF-8, UTF-16, HTML/XML, and hex and decimal. Just add one type of data,
