Solving the Arabic UTF-8 Characters Transaction Issues in an Online Malay-Arabic Dictionary

Abstract

The Malay-Arabic online dictionary stores and manipulate both Latin and Arabic alphabets. The Malay alphabets use Latin characters, while Arabic alphabets use Unicode representation to store the characters in the computer system. One of the Unicode character encoding scheme is UTF-8. Since the Arabic alphabets are stored in Unicode, there are additional efforts to transmit the Arabic word from the client to the server and vice-versa. The paper discuses an implementation of the information retrieval for the Arabic UTF-8 characters in an online Malay-Arabic dictionary. The processes involved are; displaying Arabic words, searching for Arabic words from the database; insert/update an Arabic word into the database.

Keywords: Arabic string manipulation, UTF-8, Malay-Arabic online dictionary.
