Type Arabic, Persian (Farsi) and Dari in applications that do not support the Unicode Standard. The LaserArabic & Farsi product includes English-system fonts in four attractive typestyles that are excellent for use in label-making, sign-making, video-captioning, for business cards, and for other situations where short passages of Arabic are needed in software that does not support working with Unicode-encoded fonts and localized applications.

LaserArabic & Farsi for Windows

LaserArabic & Farsi for Windows

Type Arabic and Persian (Farsi) in US Windows! Four TrueType and Type 1 English system Arabic fonts for use in all standard US Windows applications. Fonts include the characters for Arabic, Persian (Farsi and Dari). Follows the Arabic Windows and Arabic Macintosh keyboard arrangements. Input is left-to-right (reverse order) for compatibility with US Windows. Includes a Word for Windows template for easy right to left input (one line at a time*) in the US (English) version of Word for Windows. Does not contextualize letter forms, but the keyboard driver normally types the medial forms and provides simple, intuitive access to initial, final, and isolated forms of every character.

Fonts included are LateefiLS, KitabiLS, NargisiLS, and SarmastLS. See below for samples.

Windows System Requirements: The fonts install into Microsoft® Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, or 2000, and work with all Windows applications that allow the user to select fonts from a font menu. (A previous version is available for Windows NT, Me, 98, or 95; please contact the Sales office.) The product includes a User's Manual and keyboard layout chart(s). The included keyboard driver(s) allows access to four characters per key (instead of the normal two) and alternate keyboard layouts. All documentation is in PDF format, and can be viewed and/or printed using Adobe Reader. The fonts will print to any printer at the highest quality allowed by your printer.

A custom version (fonts only) is available for Linux, but Linux users must provide alternate keyboard input for characters in the extended character set. If you are ordering for Linux be sure to select the Linux box on the Order Form.

* The Word for Windows right to left template does not overcome all the limitations of working in the English (left-to-right) Windows environment. The user must still be careful about word wrap at the right end of each line, and have a carriage return at the end of each complete line of Arabic or Persian text to prevent the right-most word (the first word in an Arabic or Persian sentence) from wrapping to the next line. The Word right to left template does, however, provide an easy way to type Arabic or Persian as if you were typing in a right to left environment, while still using your English application, and is ideal for typing short amounts of text.

"Thank you for your quality product. I always refer people to your site whenever they are looking for quality products. You may certainly use my testimony of the superior quality of Linguist's Software fonts. Thanks!"
Thomas A. Howe, Ph.D., Professor of Bible and Biblical Languages, Southern Evangelical Seminary, Charlotte, NC

I want to say again that your helpline is unsurpassed. Every time I have asked for help I have received it in a matter of minutes. I tried to compose a reasonable thank you that doesn't sound like effusive rhetoric, but it's all true. Moreover, your product does what it says. I can type English and Arabic, convert it, and import it into Quark. It's a designer's and editor's dream. All best regards,
Charles Davey Design, New York, NY

"Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to reply so promptly.... I installed my new fonts this morning and they seem to be working fine. I would like to say how impressed I am with your service, your quick response time and the help and advice I have had in the past few days from your tech support person. I wish all companies were as quick to respond and as efficient as you are!"
Patricia Spencer, The Egypt Exploration Society, London
