English term or phrase: chelsea
my wifes name
brian
تشَلسي
Explanation:
The Arabic alphabet has no letter to represent the sound CH. When representing foreign names with that sound, the convention is to juxtapose the sounds T+SH. This convention was borrowed from the German, where the convention is to juxtapose T and SCH, as in "Tschaikaovsky", sicne German has no letter or combination of letters for that sound.

Explanation:
Brian,

The answer I gave contains the name Chelsea in Arabic text (at the top of the answer box). If you cannot view Arabic text in your browser, verify the following:

1. That your browser is MS Internet Explorer 5 or above (go to Help, About Internet Explorer).

2. That you have Arabic language support installed (go to Tools, Windows Update, and select Arabic Language support).

After verifying that you have both the correct version of IE and Arabic language support, then you will be able to display Arabic text. To do so, go to View, Encoding, and select Arabic (windows).

If you still have difficulties, please let me know.
