LaTex with ArabTex

ArabTEX is a pack­age ex­tend­ing the ca­pa­bil­i­ties of TEX/LATEX to gen­er­ate Ara­bic and He­brew text. In­put may be in ASCII translit­er­a­tion or other en­cod­ings (in­clud­ing UTF-8); out­put may be Ara­bic, He­brew, or any of sev­eral lan­guages that use the Ara­bic script.
ArabTEX con­sists of a TEX macro pack­age and Ara­bic and He­brew fonts (pro­vided both in METAFONT for­mat and Adobe Type 1). The Ara­bic font is presently only avail­able in the Naskhi style. ArabTEX will run with Plain TEX and also with LATEX.
