- Can I use Farsi in my blog and profile? 

 

 

Yes, you can.  You can use a Farsi text editor or word processor to type in your Farsi text using Unicode format.  Copy and paste it into your blog or profile.  You can also use a Farsi configured keyboard to directly type Farsi text into your blog or profile.

 

The following two should be considered:

 

1- MyPersianHalf site search engine provides capability to perform “keyword” search.  If your profile is in Farsi, the “keyword” search

function will not include your profile as part of its search.

 

2- Text that is entered into the profile section can be translated to other languages via Google translator.  This function is built in to

our site.  At this time Google translator does not have the capability to translate from Farsi to any other languages.

 

 

- Where can I get a Farsi text writer?

 

If your computer operating system is not bilingual (your country language and Farsi) you have the following two options to use Farsi text for your blog or profile. 

 

1- Use an online Farsi Keyboard such as http://www.gate2home.com/?language=fa

2- Download and install a Farsi Unicode application such as: http://www.unipad.org/download/


After typing your text, you can copy and past it into your blog or profile.
