    Nah, i wouldn't do it. You can ask TriGeminal to double check my translations if you're concerned

    He is doing them correctly. He is basically writing them phonetically in arabic.

    Here's one for Kevin:


    We don't have "V" as Mash said, but sometimes we use the 3 Dots to get those letters like V or J

    And how right you are, but at the same time wrong . If you don't speak swedish, it's almost impossible to pronounce it. That's what I've learned over the years... Not sure why this is but part of it I think is because it's kind of a "hard"/"strict" language, if you know what I mean. The 'å', 'ä' and 'ö'' has it's part of it too I guess.

    Anyhows. You are absolutely right, Sara. "yohan dal-strum" would be the "english" way of pronouncing my name.

    Oh and if you're wondering, 'Johna' is actually on the right since this is a right-to-left language

    I'm not concerned.
    I also found, while trying to figure out how to get this into my signature, what the individual characters were (using charmap in WinXP).

    It's fine Johan, i'm hot like that

    Here you go Jelena (had to use a single pronounciation mark under the first letter to get it right) :


    Joji, i translated "Joji John", i can't translate 'M' if it's not a name :


    Mr.B and revs_org, i'll get back to you when i come back home in a few hours.

    by the way, are you asking me to translate a domain name (revs.org) or is your name actually "revsdotorg"? stupid question i know, but i'm just double checking

    I don't know what it is about my name, but like everybody pronounces it wrong, my first name more than my last...go figure.

    There are a few people in this network room I am in, that can read Arabic. Well, "xhtmlcoder" would provide interesting results as it isn't a true word.
