    Posted: 15 June 2009 at 11:20am
Hello, my Muslim friends. Although I frequently browse your site, and find many of the discussions enlightening, I find myself needing to register here to ask questions that pertain more about Muslim culture, and linguistics, than religion. So please forgive me if this is the wrong place to post it.

Can someone help me with the Farsi language? I have a customer who frequents my shop, and she is an expatriate of Iran, and I would like to render a proper, polite, greeting in Farsi next time she returns to shop with her mother. All of the online translators I have found translate to the Farsi script, and although I appreciate the beauty of the caligraphy, I cannot read it!

Can someone help me render a simple greeting such as, "Good Evening, Miss" , or "Welcome back to my store" phonetically in English, and I am also open to education about the farsi script if anyone has a link. And also some insight as to whether or not that is appropriate.

Thanks again for your help!
