Why are Arabic Translations important?
Arabic is gaining in global importance and is widely used. The Arabic language is spoken by over 186 million people as a first language, and at least another 35 million as a second language. More than 20 countries use Arabic as their official language, including: Egypt, Jordan, Afghanistan, Qatar and Israel. In some countries more than one language coexists, for example in Israel, where Arabic and Hebrew are spoken. This is also the case in Morocco, Tunisia and most of the Maghreb region where both Arabic and French are regularly used.
If we add to the cultural diversity the fact that Arabic is written from right to left, we have the perfect ingredients for localization.
Modern Standard Arabic is the official language throughout the Arab world and its written form is very consistent across national boundaries. The spoken forms of Arabic vary and each Arab country has its own dialect. Of all the dialects, Egyptian Arabic is the most widely understood due to popular use in film and television. Understanding the market or country you are targeting is important to achieve proper localization for your audience.
