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.

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.
