I am not expert in working with ORACLE 10g and,

I am trying to search for an Arabic version for SOUNDEX, which I can use in dealing with Arabic values, but I didn’t find any useful decision about If there is already “a ready oracle built-in” Arabic version or not?

So can I get a reply for my question and if not, any suggestions/alternatives for doing the same functionality of SOUNDEX English version but for Arabic values…

Also is there any mean to edit the SOUNDEX function and reuse the updated version?

Thanks in advance,

There is no built-in arabic soundex function.
For an idea read the following topic:
