About this Add-on
- Transliteration of Arabic/Syriac text, vocalized or not, to Hebrew writing system.
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. ע\ع (Ayn\Ayn) Converter gives to a Hebrew reader ability to read Arabic/Syriac texts (and understand them partially, even w/o learning of the languages).

- Translation of the text with various online dictionaries and translation services.
The add-on 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.
- Articles from various encyclopedias and other related sources.
- Unicode info on each character of the selected text.
- Ge'ez number converter.
and opens tabs, in a popup window, only with the information sources where the term is found (supported information sources).
Idea of the add-on is that the user does not select the information
sources to look for the term each time when he/she selects a text, but the add-on itself makes the decision based on the text encoding.
To use this add-on, select, with the mouse, text in your browser window then use context menu, to get the info. Ayn\Ayn knows to work with PDF files opened in the Google Docs Viewer.
To get the translation select one or several words (or a word part).

Others accept short phrases too. Ar=>En, He; Pers=>Eng long text translation w/GoogleTranslate is supported.
