‛Afkar’ is an Arabic word for ‘ideas,’ and the goal of Microsoft Afkar is to give Arabic speakers tools to devise their own new ideas.
Arabic poses particular challenges for translators. Microsoft Afkar consists of several tools, all designed to make Arabic more Web-friendly and usable. The main components include a speller, reader, transliteration, autocomplete, multilingual authoring and a morphological analyser.
