v25 v26 73 73 that this is not the same as translation -- it is the sound of the words that is converted from one alphabet to the other, not their meaning. 74 74 Converted content will always be in Unicode. 75 75 76 [[Image(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_C8NLLuO4CdQ/S1VUnCIT1ZI/AAAAAAAAESo/j9iqcDc0QSE/s400/IME_edit_window.png)]] 76 77 77 78 Google Transliteration IME offers several features focused on an improved user experience, including offline support, word completion, personalized choices, easy-to-use keyboard, quick search and several cool customization options.

For example, a user wants to search for "Aspirin" in Arabic letters. Currently, he won't find anything, as the UTF-8 encodings of roman letters are different from the Arabic letters ("Aspirin" == "أسبرين" would fail). The idea is to reverse transliterate the non-roman string into roman letters on server-side and perform the search with the reverse-transliterated string.
