Hi Amira,

You could try the Buckwalter transliteration http://www.qamus.org/transliteration.htm , but is does not support punctuation, so if your task needs to keep punctuation and you want to encode the transliterated text in ANSI or ASCII, you have to add to the Buckwalter table a transliteration of the Arabic punctuation marks; for example, Arabic comma should be transliterated to Latin comma.

All the best !
