Post Araby.com: New Arabic Search Engine

Maktoob.com, a leading arab internet portal company, had the beta launch last week for Araby.com, a search engine dedicated for Arabic Internet pages (It could be considered the First real one to come from the region) with special features related to Arabic language support that the global search engines (Yahoo, Google, etc..) lack. Such as proper Arabic text normalization, lemmatization, etc.. . Add to that, the creation of Vertical searches that interest Arab users in particular, such as Search in Islamic content, News, Blogs, Forums, and Images.

The engine used in Araby.com is ESP from FAST, with heavily customized and tailored document processing stages, designed for Araby's requirements and needs.

Currently the interface is only in Arabic, it indexes some english documents that have arabic as part of the languages in it.
