I have word documents that have the Semiticadict font. I need to convert them into English.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

I listen to these people online some time, I am pretty sure they know how.I'm not sure if it is Alice or Jolene.

You've already asked this once. http://community.logos.com/forums/t/90956.aspx

I googled on the font name, the third hit comes up with this: 

SemiticaDict was a custom font licensed from Linguist's Software by Logos
Research Systems (www.logos.com) for use in early versions of their Logos
Library System. The font with the closest character set and arrangement is
Semitica, part of Linguist's Software's LaserTransliterator product. See
www.linguistsoftware.com/ltr.htm.

Again I'll point you to: http://transliterate.com/

Finally, I'll ask if you can upload a sample of what you are trying to convert.

The font in question appears to be a standard mapping font not unicode.  So you've got a font that drops in a different glyph.

One more post for some google results

Some SIL mapping files for converting to unicode: http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?cat_id=ConversionMaps#3ecf5557 

I hope this helps Mark.

If I understand correctly, those fonts are english representations (transliterations) of foreign languages, probably Hebrew and Greek.  To get them into English you're going to have to translate, that is possibly a manual task, though if you manage to get it converted to UNICODE you may be able to paste it into Google translate and come up with something barely close.
