The translation files are from the Linguistic Data Consortium (GPLv2). When a page loads, each word is quickly decomposed into prefix + stem + suffix using data from tableab, tableac and tablebc. Note that in Arabic, a particular word could have different decompositions and thus different definitions. The definitions of the prefix, stem and suffix are looked up and concatenated to form the final definition.
All Arabic words on the page are wrapped in span tags, some js is injected so that when the user hovers over the mouse, a tooltip with the definitions are shown.
