The Asali Script was created by Abdul Syukur Sugiharto as a altnerative script for Austronesian langauges. He was inspired by the Roman alphabet, and wanted to create similar script, but with easier and more beautiful writing. When he had finished and published it, some people said that the script is like the Armenian script or even Tengwar script.
Asali script can be used to write languages that have one voice in writing, such as Austronesian languages, but can also be used to write other languages by writing according how it sounds. Almost all the languages of the world can be written in the Asali script because each letter can be matched to the sound required in a language as well as the Roman script, but the Asali script can not be used to write tonal languages.
Semua orang dilahirkan merdeka dan mempunyai martabat dan hak-hak yang sama. Mereka dikaruniai akal dan hati nurani dan hendaknya bergaul satu sama lain dalam semangat persaudaraan.
Sabên wong kalairake kaṇṭi mardika lan darbe martabat lan hak-hak kang paḍa. Kabeh pinaringan akal lan kalbu sarta kaajab pasrawungan anggone mêmitran siji lan sijine kaṇṭi jiwa sumadulur.
Sakumna jalma gubrag ka alam dunya téh sipatna merdika jeung boga martabat katut hak-hak anu sarua. Maranéhna ibéré akal jeung haté nurani, campur-gaul jeung sasamana aya dina sumanget duduluran.

Ang lahat ng tao'y isinilang na malaya at pantay-pantay sa karangalan at mga karapatan. Sila'y pinagkalooban ng katwiran at budhi at dapat magpalagayan ang isa't isa sa diwa ng pagkakapatiran.
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards
one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
