Arabic Search Engine

Yamli has just launched its Arabic search engine, allowing Arabic users to search the net with either Arabic script or Arabic transliteration.

The search comes with a number of impressive tricks:

  • it will take a search term and expand it to include all possible transliterations
  • users with a non-Arabic keyboard can use its interface to type in Arabic
  • its optimized for slow connections - which will be a bonus for those of us with slow Qtel connections!
Watch the video below for more explanation!
