Hi.

I've been asked to provide a translation in a "Helvetica like" font. Do you know any such font for Arabic or Persian?

Thanks.

No equivalent font likely in Persian TTF Nov 11, 2005

Greetings... salaam...

I may be misinformed, but I strongly doubt that such an equivalent of that style/type of font exists in Persian (and possibly that requesting client is misinformed in thinking that such a font exists).

Perhaps Mudir TTF or Mudir MT TTF might be satisfactory. If not, a large range of Persian fonts is available online (according on what appearance that clint wants in the final product you deliver).

Hope this helps.

khudaa Haafez.

Concepts such as serif and sans-serif have no meaning with respect to Arabic typefaces, because they lack serifs.

Alternatively you can look for "non-traditional" styles with more geometric letter shapes, or as a last resort use Arial Unicode MS, if you can sacrifice aesthetics.
