This might be a bit of a long shot, but...does anyone here know of a decent translation program that can translate from Darija (North African Arabic)? Or, even more of a long shot...one that can handle Kabyle, or even any other Tamazight language? Something free, and online or readily downloadable would be optimum, but I can't seem to find even a "premium" one that clearly has it as a language.
None of the standard programs I've tried seem to even recognize Darija as a form of Arabic -- and therein lies the problem, because Darija isn't mutually intelligible with other dialects of Arabic. While I have a couple of online resources for learning Darija and even some rudimentary Kabyle, it would be great to have something to handle the thornier stuff so I don't have to request conversational messages be translated into English or French...and so I can actually learn on my own a bit.
Saha bezef :) ("Thanks very much" being one of the phrases I *do* know)
A quick check of Wikipedia and Wiktionary indicates that BRB (for "be right back") appears widely understood and used in French-speaking online communities, and doesn't mention any obvious equivalent acronym in French. Is anyone here aware of one? (Preferably one that would be readily understood across French-speaking communities, not something specific to one of fr_BE/fr_CA/fr_CH/fr_FR and not understood elsewhere.)
