Aberra Molla (Ge'ez: ኣበራ ሞላ, born 1947) is an Ethiopian veterinarian and writer who computerized the Ge'ez alphabet.

Computer work

Aberra computerized the Ge'ez (ግዕዝ) alphabet (also known as Ethiopic) in the 1980s[1] and released the first Ethiopic word processor in that script in 1987.[2] More recently, he worked towards including Ethiopic, Ethiopic Supplement and Extended Ethiopic, particularly Central Cushitic and Gurage glyphs, in Unicode.[3] Ethiopic, an abjad abugida syllabary, has been in use by numerous Ethiopian languages such as Agew, Amharic, Bilen, Ge'ez, Harari, Me'en, Sebat Bet Gurage, Silt'e, Tigre and Tigrigna. The Bible, complete or in part, has also been published in Ethiopic in most of the above languages and others such as Gedeo, Hadiyya, Kembata, Oromo, Sidamo and Welayta languages since 1513. Inscriptional records from D`mt (ደኣማት) kingdom in proto-Ge'ez of the Ge'ez alphabet go back to at least 9th century BC [1]. In the view of Ethiopian Orthodox, the Book of Enoch (መጽሓፈ ሄኖክ) was written in Ethiopic by the first and oldest author in any human language.

Veterinary work

Aberra is a veterinarian, and he is employed as a supervisory public health veterinarian with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). He worked to contain foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom during the 2001 United Kingdom foot-and-mouth crisis.[1] He has one US (4,501,816) patent and one UK (2,127,963) patents for a fast immunoglobulin field test. He has also researched neonatal immunodeficiency. Aberra also made vaccines for many years.
