A friend saw this sign

I'm writing a story (in English) where someone speaks Arabic. All I really need is "I'm slipping" (or "I'm falling" would work fine), but I need to put that into English letters. All the online translators seem to either reject this (presumably because of conjugation & such) or they only give it to me in Arabic letters. Help?

Wikipedia's article on the slash character
dates it back to ancient Rome, but doesn't give much history beyond that. Looking at some Arabic websites, it appears the slashes go in the same direction, though the direction of text is different. Is the slash direction the same for all languages? Does all slash usage originate with the Romans or did other languages start using slashes independently? And was it spread from one language to another via some non-language usage (e.g. math) or via written language?
