Arabeyes (also ArabEyes; Arabic transcription: عرب‌آيز) is a FOSS "Meta project that is aimed at fully supporting the Arabic language in the Unix/Linux environment. It is designed to be a central location to standardize the Arabization? process. ... Arabeyes is Open Source?, completely FREE and abides by the ideals of the open source communities."
