LanguageConverter for Malay (from ms-Latn to ms-Arab)
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently Malay Wikipedia only uses Roman (ms-Latn) script. We wished to be able to use Jawi (ms-Arab) script (derived from Arabic script). The code ms-Arab is based on (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_15924) and it is widely used in Wiktionary especially English Wiktionary.

We want to have a Jawi option just like what Kazakh Wikipedia has currently. There was a Jawi converter tool in WMF Labs that turns Malay Wikipedia into Jawi script. However, it is inactive and you can see it from here (http://web.archive.org/web/20170811111850/http://tools.wmflabs.org/jawi/wiki/Laman_Utama)

Thank you in advance.
