Okay, so we know Google Translate has been around since mmmm forever, but sometimes you just want to transliterate – i.e a word directly without translation. Check out
http://www.google.com/ta3reeb/ or http://www.google.com/intl/ar/inputtools/try/
Both are Google driven and run English to Arabic direct transliteration – however you can do pretty much any language. Pretty cool huh.
