Earlier this year, we launched the Tashkeel (Diacritization) service on Google Labs. I'm pleased to announce that we've added an experimental Diacritization component to the Google Language API. This is a simple JSON API which you can use to add diacritic symbols to strings of Arabic text.
To test it out, try clicking this link:
A URL-encoded string is supplied as the message parameter, and it's returned by the API with diacritics included. These symbols are useful to people just learning the language and as an important pre-step for several text processing applications.
