Hi Asmaa Shaban,

     This is a rough outline as to how you might go about doing this.

For each word in typed into your program, read through the Egyptian XML 
file from the SignPuddle and find a matching entry.
For each matching entry get the FSW from the entry, parse it and create 
the objects that represent that sign. In the code I will send you 
SPMLConverter.ImportSPML does this.

Pass the objects to your renderer which will read the need symbols from 
the database and compose them into a sign. DrawSWDrawing is the function 
that does this

I will send you some code privately which can do some of these steps but 
you will have to adapt it to your program. It is licensed under the MIT 
Open Source license

If you need to convert from VB.Net to C# you can use 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sharpdevelop/?source=dlp it get most 
things but you may have to fix some bits by hand.

Feel free to ask any questions,  I will be away for a few days but will 
get back to as soon as I can.
