Until now I was using XePersian package to typeset Persian articles, now I want insert some Persian word in an English document, what is minimum code to do that without using XePersian package?


% rendered as ک ت ا ب but should be rendered کتاب

  • You should try the Polyglossia package. – Andrey Vihrov Jan 5 '13 at 10:54
  • @AndreyVihrov Thanks, can you please give me a minimum example? – PHPst Jan 18 '13 at 20:22

Very simple. I do it like this:

\usepackage{bidi}% this should be the last package to load.
\newfontfamily\Kayhan[Script=Arabic]{XB Kayhan}% for example
\newenvironment{Farsi}%more human readable - other stuff can be added as well

Then just write farsi like this:

This is an english paragraph with some 
نوشته فارسی
that is added.

پاراگراف فارسی
This is a Persian word: \fa{سیب}. It means apple.

Use fa for word level and Fa for paragraph level of Persian contents.

Use XePersian: http://bay.uchicago.edu/tex-archive/macros/xetex/latex/xepersian/xepersian.pdf

1 \documentclass{minimal}
2 \usepackage{xepersian}
3 \usepackage{enumerate}
4 \settextfont{XB Niloofar}
5 \begin{document}
ﺍﯾﻦ ﻓﻘﻂ ﯾﮏ ﺁﺯﻣﺎﯾﺶ ﺍﺳﺖ 6
7 \end{document}
