Google Translate is great – but unfortunately not for Arabic. There is a very good alternative: the extension called Arabic Dictionary.
There aren’t many, but recently, some good stuff was added.
Muslims call the word Allah the “grand word”. It is often written in a certain way, i.e., with the dagger Alif (الألف الخنجرِية) – the vertical dash on top of the second letter ل . This sign kind of a trademark of the word Allah I would say. How do you produce that?
Many people use the standard fonts that come with MS Windows or MacOS when they want to type in Arabic. Since many people do not really change the standard fonts in MS Word (or Libre Office or Open Office), they will end up using Times New Roman or Arial. Although they mostly do the job, sometimes they are difficult to read. Are you tired of these fonts? There is an easy way out.
You can talk to Google Translate because Google understands Arabic much better! Google Translate will convert your speech into text and instantly translate it. And if you don’t wanna talk to Google, then use your phone’s camera. Google Translate now can process images with Arabic texts and decode Arabic. Just take a picture of any Arabic text and mark what you want Google to translate into English.
