This system has been designed to transliterate into Arabic all names written in the English/Latin alphabet A-Z and display them in Arabic letters. If a foreign letter does not exist in the Arabic alphabet then it is approximated to the nearest Arabic letter.


ATA-NTS incorporates powerful transliteration routines as well as approximation routines that “guess” the possible Arabic transliteration/equivalent for a name written in English/Latin alphabetical characters.


Due to the limitation of the English alphabet (26 letters), the system has built-in routines to take care of some of the problems arise from that limitation.


ATA-NTS is highly accurate and allows for enhancements and enables the user to add new names or combination of names. The special transliteration table used in the system can be easily edited to allow for the addition of new terms.
