“Typing Arabic has never been this easy!” Maren

Lack of access to an Arabic keyboard or lack of familiarity with one are two of the most common problems preventing Arabic users from communicating in their own language.

Microsoft Maren is a Windows extension that comes to the rescue, allowing you to type Arabic in Roman characters (Romanized Arabic, Arabizi, Arabish or Franco-Arabic) and have it converted on the fly to Arabic script.

Maren integrates seamlessly with Windows and works in most Windows applications and websites.

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows XP SP2+ (32-bit)

Supported Hardware

  • 1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

For Windows XP Users

The Microsoft Arabic Language Input Tool installer may need to install the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and the Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 if they are not already present on your system. These pre-installation steps may require a restart.

Following a restart, an attempt will be made to resume the installation. If the installation does not automatically resume, you will have to run the installer again. It is therefore recommended that you save the installer locally by choosing 'Save' instead of 'Run' or 'Open' at the download prompt.
