Geographic Names Romanization System
Shown below is a typical screenshot of the system working on sample data, the system is not capable of doing the reverse i.e. generating the native script of the geographic names, another special system (Retrieval) is developed for this purpose. View software specifications. Please refer to Romanizer for details.

Geographic Names Arabicizing System
A direct Arabicization of grographical name is straightforward if the input is written in native script, the name's inherent phonemic characteristics are kept through various stages of Arabicization process. This system is based on thorough listing of language phonetic rules that are used to Arabicize place names from 20 different languages, place names can be input in their original script or as romanized version where improvement to Arabicization process is done through pattern matching and other accuracy measurments used for transliteration.

This is a major challenge for information retrieval systems utilized in CLIR applications. View software specifications. Please refer Retrieval System for details.
