Hi Asmaa Shaban,
I am Jonathan Duncan the author of SignWriter Studio. I have
code that imports and exports to and from FSW and creates PNG of
signs. I don't currently have any for FSW to SVG document in
SignWriter Studio, that's my next little project. SignWriter Studio
is written in VB.Net which can converted be to C# or the DLL can
also be decompiled to C# with a utility like ".Net Reflector" or
"Jet Brains dotPeek". I would be happy to share some code to get
you started once I a get a clearer idea of what you need.
Tell me a bit more about the project you are working on. So far I
understand that you want to do it in C#, and if I remember correctly
is this a web application so I would be assuming ASP.Net. Or is it a
desktop application? You want to type in Arabic Text and get Arabic
sign language. Much like the what Signpuddle can do here.
type in قديم كلمة مذكّر
and get the signs that correspond to the words? Is this what you
want to program?
By the way I don't know what those words are I just copied and
pasted them from the dictionary as an example.
Also what programming languages are you familiar with? How long
have you been programming, what type of programs have you written in
SignWriterLayoutEngline could give you another example of how to
parse an FSW string and how to position the SVG symbols. http://www.signwriterstudio.com/download/SignWriterLayoutEngine.zip
The only logic that won't work for you there might be the IndexedDB
which you could swap out for the SQLite versions of the Refactored

That is fine Dr Stephen , But i do not know more
about PHP . So, there is no another way ??
another programming language as C# for example ??
it is not available can i use PNG ?

Greeting Dr Stephen and All :
From my understanding around the project :
1- the SVG is
used to draw signs as for example (fig2)
This is correct. We are using SVG primarily until the
TrueType Font is perfected.
2- I should do the FSW for each
sign and also define its word in arabic as for
example (fig 1) where the user when enter
the FSW or the word in arabic , the sign is
The FSW is the mathematical name of the sign. The SVG
image is created from the FSW.
3- But here i do not
understand how to link among the SVG file
(fig2) and the dictionary file (fig 1) .
thanks in advance
The SVG file is created from the FSW. The open source
project the "SignWriting Icon Server" is able to
create the SVG from the FSW.
I just published the first release candidate for the
SignWriting Icon Server. You can grab the source from
Github and install your own, or you can use one of the
several existing SignWriting Icon Servers available
online. I would suggest the Wikimedia Labs based
Github source: https://github.com/Slevinski/swis
Wikimedai Labs server: http://swis.wmflabs.org
SignBank Server: http://signbank.org/swis
Specifically, the "glyphogram.php" script is used to
create the SVG.
You can call this script directly or learn to use the
SignWriting Thin Viewer for website in general.
