Tips and Techniques Ejawi Conversion :
- Character by character conversion
Shortform for Universiti Malaya (UM), you only add a plus sign (+) opposite the letter.
Example : +U +M
- Number Conversion
Numbers have been set to Arabic numerals. In case you want to write numbers in English, just double the plus sign (+) in front of each number.
Example : ++1 ++2 ++3
- Arabic Word Combination
Arabic words containing ABDUL and AIDIL and the like, please combine them without any space in between the words.
Example : ABDULRAHIM, AIDILFITRI.
Update : Words like Al, Abdul, Aidil and so on will be automatically combined.
- Based on Malay Language Phonetic
This Jawi Script Converter is based on the phonetic spelling of the Malay language. The conversion of foreign languages to Jawi script, other than the Malay Language (Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia and Southern Thai), are not accurate.
Example : Letter of C.
- Mixing of Latin alphabet (UPPERCASE) with Jawi Text
Add 2 asterisks/stars (**) in front of each character that you want to maintain in its Latin alphabet equivalent.
For example : **U**N**I**M**A**S = UNIMAS.
- Mixing of Latin alphabet (lowercase) with Jawi script
Add a star (*) in front of each letter that you want to maintain in Latin alphabet.
For example : *e*j*a*w*i.*n*e*t = ejawi.net.
- Since Ejawi Transliteration Converter will only convert Romanised Malay Alphabet (Latin) characters to jawi script, any jawi script included within the Latin text will remain the same as earlier typed in.
- This approach is similarly implemented in the EJAWI FORUM COMMUNITY.
- Words that have their origin in Arabic Language, may not be converted accurately as expected since the phonetic rule of the Arabic language is not the same as that of the Malay language. To have an accurate rumi-jawi transliteration, the spelling of adopted Arabic words must have the exact form of the Arabic spelling. Examples: bismillahirrahmanirrahim, assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
