Roman Script to Arabic Script Conversion
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).
