    I remember posting about this. It's by far the best Arabic transliteration tool available, and for Firefox users I recommend using the add-on.

    This tool doesn't transliterate Arabic to English? Which tool does that?

    Almost exactly like http://www.google.com/ta3reeb which personally I prefer. I don't know of any tools to transliterate Arabic to English, I would imagine it would be difficult since while English vowels are present in all words, not so much in Arabic. Therefore there would need to be a huge database of hand transliterate words to reference to.

    I think it is extremely benefitial to learn how to type in Arabic. You generally do not need an Arabic keyboard; think about it, the majority of you probably type without ever looking at the keys anyways. You can change the keyboard localization so that it functions essentially like an Arabic keyboard. I used this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KB_Arabic.svg as a reference for whenever I forgot where a key was, but you'll catch on with time.
