PHP & Arabic Language Project Features

Arabic Language

Worldwide Internet use has grown tremendously in recent years, most rapidly in non-English speaking regions especially in Arab world. For example, from 2000 to 2010, the online populations in the Middle East grew by 2501.2%. Meanwhile, Arabic Web content was estimated to be doubling every year. Such growth has created demand for better websites developing resources in Arabic language. However, existing websites developing resources may be unable to meet it because they primarily serve English-speaking users.

Arabic, the fifth most popular language in the world, is spoken by more than 347 million people in 22 countries from Morocco to UAE, Arabic is also the Muslims liturgical language of nearly 1 billion people worldwide. Yet the Arabic Web is still in its infancy, constituting less than 1% of total Web content.

The Arabic alphabet consists of 28 consonants and can be written without vowels, since vowels are inherent to the consonant characters. The Arabic alphabet has also been adopted by non-Semitic languages such as Persian, Urdu, and some West African languages. Arabic is written in right to left order.

LGPL:

The main difference between the GPL and the LGPL is that the latter can be linked to (in the case of a library, 'used by') a non-(L)GPLed program, which may be free software or proprietary software. This non-(L)GPLed program can then be distributed under any chosen terms if it is not a derivative work.
