Arabic: an expanding language

Use of Arabic on the internet has been increasing quickly in recent years. According to the Internet World Statistics report, the number of internet users in the Middle East jumped from 3.2 million users in 2000 to 41.9 million in 2008, and nearly 147 million in 2017. Arabic is now the sixth most spoken language globally. With fast population growth and a high proportion of young people in many Arab countries, is the Arabic-speaking audience one you can afford to ignore?

Professional English-to-Arabic translators

A successful translation pays attention to style, linguistic connotations and cultural appropriateness. When translating from English to Arabic, WorldAccent employs only mother-tongue professional Arabic translators, selected according to their language skills, educational background, subject knowledge and experience.

Our translators will be fully briefed on the context of each assignment, including your target audience and the role of the document within any wider communication strategy.

We also make use of the latest translation and terminology management software. This will ensure consistency within your current Arabic translation project and also across any related projects. It can also help to reduce costs and turnaround times.

If you wish to review your Arabic translation before we supply you with your final translated document, we can provide you with a simple bilingual word-processing file that can be amended if necessary and returned to us.

An expert project manager from our multilingual team will look after your translation job from receipt through to delivery.

Arabic translation: London to Cairo, Abu Dhabi and beyond

Our project managers live and work in London – one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world with more than 300 languages spoken. There is a wide variety of Arabic communities within London, forming a large part of the half a million Arabs who live in the UK.

This leaves us ideally placed to provide translation for organisations needing to reach Arabic speaking communities within the UK.

We also work – directly and indirectly – for Arabic speaking clients around the world, including brands based in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Egypt, as well as charities and corporations active in countries such as Algeria and Morocco.

Whether you need to talk to a Arabic community in the UK or part of the wider Arab world, you can be sure that our Arabic translation will always be appropriate and targeted to your audience.

Other Arabic language services

WorldAccent also offers translation from Arabic to English and a range of other Arabic language services including Arabic copywriting, Arabic proofreading and Arabic brand-name checks.

Naturally, we offer an Arabic translation service for your website too. Our London based web team can advise on your site’s layout while we painlessly translate it into Arabic and provide you with code files ready to go.

We also provide Arabic typesetting – applying our exacting standards to translating your visual design from English to Arabic.

Arabic reads from right to left, meaning a printed book will open from the left, with the spine below. Designs for English layouts often need to be flipped to flipped to provide the same experience to an Arabic reader.

From advising on the language implications of your initial designs through to producing print-ready PDFs, our London based studio has all the necessary experience to produce an Arabic document that works as brilliantly as your English.

We are on hand to help and suggest when creating a design to work with Arabic. We can point out potential problems before your design is finalised, and carry out the actual flipping once it is.

Our studio also have all the technical Arabic DTP knowledge you would expect, from an in-depth understanding of Arabic typographic conventions and fonts to an authoritative knowledge of InDesign, Quark Xpress, Illustrator, Word, Photoshop, Excel, Powerpoint, Acrobat and more.

Two points of interest on the Arabic language:

  • There are many regional dialects of spoken Arabic, but Modern Standard Arabic is the shared formal language among Arabic-speaking countries.
  • Arabic is spoken in Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Chad, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Western Sahara, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
