In this paper, we present multilingual automatic identification of Arabic and Latin in both handwritten and printed script. The proposed scheme is based, Firstly, on morphological transform of line text images, secondly on fractal analysis features of both (i): original texture of 2-D images, (ii): vertical and horizontal profile projection. We used two techniques to obtain only 12 features based on fractal multi-dimension. The proposed system has been tested for 1000 prototypes with various typefaces, scriptors styles and sizes. The accuracy discrimination rate is about of 96.64 % by using KNN, and 98.72 % by using RBF. Experimental results show the importance of the proposed approach.
