Arabic text help
0

I'm working on a multilingual identity for a conference and one of the languages is arabic. I have Din arabic but no idea about how to generate some arabic text in a programme such as freehand or illustrator - do these programmes support arabic, or would I need a middle eastern version? for the actual identity I need 5 words as vectors in the three weights of Din arabic that I have... can anyone help/advise me on this?

thanks!

what version of Illustrator do you have? If you have CS4 or later, you can set basic Arabic text with help of World-Ready templates.
