(Ayn\Ayn) Lookup Publisher's description
from Ze'ev Belkin
Aramaic and Arabic languages are close relatives of Hebrew. It were easy for Israelis to study these languages, but the differences in the writing systems makes this task more difficult.
Aramaic and Arabic languages are close relatives of Hebrew. It were easy for Israelis to study these languages, but the differences in the writing systems makes this task more difficult. ЧўШ№ (AynAyn) Lookup is a Firefox add-on, designed initially as a transliteration tool that converts Arabic/Syriac texts (vocalized or not) available on the Net, to Hebrew writing system, and gives to a Hebrew reader ability to read these texts (and understand them partially, even w/o learning of the languages).
Later an interface to various online translation services was added. The translation services interface searches for a selected word, part of word or a phrase in multiple dictionaries simultaneously, and shows to the user only those dictionaries where the search term was found. This interface is smart enough to perform various text encoding conversions required, for example, to look for Aramaic text, written with Hebrew alphabet in a Syriac dictionary. Also, some additional stemming may be performed if a word is not found in a dictionary.
Also, in addition to the Arabic<=>Hebrew/English and English<=Syriac translation, Hebrew<=>English/Russian and other translation services and some related search engines support was added to the add-on.
The next online translation/search services are supported:
