After 3 months of work, I’m pleased to have completed Andika!, a set of tools to allow Swahili to be written in Arabic script, with converters to turn this into Roman script and vice versa. Not least, it provides a way to digitise Swahili manuscripts so that they can be printed attractively, and so that their contents are available for research using computational linguistic methods. More details are on the website.
