Converting Romanized Persian to the Arabic Writing Systems

Jalal Maleki, Lars Ahrenberg


Abstract
This paper describes a syllabification based conversion method for converting romanized Persian text to the traditional Arabic-based writing system. The system is implemented in Xerox XFST and relies on rule based conversion of words rather than using morphological analysis. The paper presents a brief evaluation of the accuracy of the transcriptions generated by the method.
