Arabic translators matched to the region you’re targeting

Local Arabic dialects can vary dramatically. This makes using a professional Arabic translator with a first-hand understanding of your specific target market vital to your success.

That’s why any Arabic-to-English or English-to-Arabic translation you get from Asian Absolute will be handled by a native speaker of the particular audience you are targeting.

By speaking to your audience in the way they expect, you will maximise engagement with your offline materials and minimise your bounce rate online.

As well as accurately and fluently localising your text, any Arabic translation we do for you will include:

  1. Adapting icons, visuals, and images to suit Arabic cultural norms.
  2. Changing currency, time and date formats, and contact information to fit local requirements.
  3. Redesigning the layout to accommodate right-to-left text and usability.

Where is Arabic spoken?

Taken as a whole, including the speakers of its various dialects and forms, Arabic is spoken by more than 422 million people worldwide.

It is spoken as a majority language in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Gaza, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates, the West Bank and Yemen, and as a minority language in many other countries.

Arabic is also one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

Which variety of Arabic do I need?

Classical Arabic

Sometimes called Quranic Arabic or Mudari Arabic, Classical Arabic is used in literary texts – most commonly from the Umayyad and Abbasid periods between the 7th and 9th centuries. This includes, most notably, the Qur’an.

Classical Arabic is used in some media across North Africa and the Middle East. The majority of the almost countless national and regional dialects of Arabic are derived from Classical Arabic.

Modern Standard Arabic

Modern Standard Arabic is the direct descendant of Classical Arabic and much more widely used.

You can find Modern Standard Arabic in newspapers and books, on television and radio. It is the accepted language in mosques and in conversation between educated Arabic-speakers from different countries.

Arabic interpreters – speaking the right dialect for your audience

There are huge differences between the language most Arabic-speakers use to write with and that which they use when speaking.

There are 29 major spoken regional dialects. Choosing the right one to support at your forthcoming business meeting, conference, or dubbing project is very important indeed.

That’s why any Arabic interpreter we pair you with will always be drawn from or intimately familiar with your target audience. They’ll also be highly sensitive to the crucial role which age, gender, local area, lifestyle, dialect, and accent can play in Arabic communications.

We regularly provide Arabic interpreting services for our UK and global clients for situations including:

Business meetings and conferences

Presentations and speeches

Dinners and other social events

Voice-over and dubbing projects

Specialist medical interpreters

Frequently Asked Questions

What language group is Arabic from?

Arabic is a member of the Semitic family of languages. This is the same group that includes Hebrew and Aramaic.

Is Arabic an Indo-European language?

Technically speaking, no. Arabic is a Semitic language, not Indo-European.

This confusion sometimes arises because Arabic has many words in common with Persian – which is an Indo-European language – and the two languages are often spoken in countries that have many cultural similarities with each other.

How many people speak Arabic around the world?

Including all of the different varieties of Arabic, there are roughly 313 million Arabic speakers worldwide.

This includes the 65 million Modern Standard Arabic speakers in Egypt and the nearly 30 million in both Algeria and Sudan as well as sizable Arabic-speaking populations in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Morocco.

This figure makes Arabic the fifth most-spoken language in the world. Only Mandarin, Spanish, English, and Hindi are spoken by more people.

Arabic Language Facts

Arabic is one of the most spoken languages in the UK, with an estimated 1.17 million people speaking it, according to a 2011 census report.

Arabic is an important language for business and commercial activities in the Middle East and North Africa. The oil and gas industry relies heavily on Arabic speakers with expertise in English and Arabic.

Arabic is often used in global banking, finance and investment activities, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa. In recent years, many companies have started offering language courses in Arabic, focusing on business and commercial activities. This allows business professionals to communicate more effectively with their counterparts in the Middle East and North Africa.

Additionally, it allows them to engage in trade deals and other business activities more effectively. The UK government has also taken steps to promote Arabic language learning, including the British Council’s Leading Edge program, which aims to help native English speakers learn how to speak and write Arabic. This provides an excellent opportunity for businesses to access new markets or expand their presence in existing markets.

Overall, Arabic is a crucial language for business in the UK, and its role is growing as companies look to engage with consumers in Middle Eastern countries. In addition to traditional face-to-face communication, modern technologies such as instant messaging applications and video calls are making it easier for businesses to reach out to potential customers and partners in the Middle East.

The UK is well-positioned to benefit from this growth as it has a long history of strong ties with the region, making it an attractive destination for foreign investors. As a result, businesses can use Arabic language skills to expand their operations and build relationships with potential customers.
