Arabic is spoken by an estimated 230 million people around
the world and is the first language of the Middle Eastern
countries and many African nations. There are approximately 30
variations of Arabic dialect with the Egyptian dialect being the
most widely spoken. Written Arabic comprises of Modern Standard
Arabic and Classical Arabic. Classical Arabic is the language
of the Qu’ran and classical literature. Although the Qu’ran
is written and recited in Classical Arabic, many Muslims rely
on translation into Modern Standard Arabic in order to understand
its meaning. Modern Standard Arabic is understood by all Arabic
speakers and as such is used for education and mass communication
e.g. newspapers and television. The majority of our Arabic translations
are conducted in Modern Standard Arabic.
We have at your disposal a team of highly qualified,
experienced and specialised Arabic translators. We offer
a comprehensive Arabic translation service covering a variety
of specialist fields including scientific, technical, legal, commercial/promotional,
etc. We also offer typesetting and printing services for brochures,
Power Point Presentations and other professionally produced materials.
Our Arabic translators are located both in Australia
and overseas. We assign projects to Arabic translators
according to key factors such as accreditation, area of expertise
and the translator’s country of residence, which is particularly
important for commercial/promotional translations. We ensure that
the Arabic translation will read as well or even better than the
source document by carefully assigning the most appropriate translator
for the project; fluency in the latest cultural and business terminology
for your target audience is essential. Our Arabic translators hold current membership of organizations associations such as AUSIT. For translations requiring certification within Australia, we utilize translators credentialed by NAATI. Furthermore, all of our Arabic translations undergo proofreading to ensure accuracy.
Arabic to English and English to Arabic typesetting considerations
When translating from one language to another,
the volume of text will either increase or decrease. This expansion
and contraction will vary depending upon subject matter. English
to Arabic translation often results in a 20% increase in text.
Accordingly, Arabic to English translation will decrease the amount
of text by 25%. This is a general rule, but should be factored
in when preparing copy that is to be typeset following translation.
A more significant consideration when typesetting an English to
Arabic translation is that Arabic copy flows from right to left.
This can result in a myriad of problems for a non Arabic-speaking
typesetter. The typesetting of Arabic requires experience, dedicated
Arabic versions of design software and an Arabic-speaking typesetter.
Additionally, page layout of artwork such as paneled brochures
will need to reversed, for example, the English version of a brochure’s
pages will be numbered 1,2,3, whereas the pages of the Arabic
version will be ordered 3,2,1. There are no other significant
typesetting considerations to be made when preparing copy for
translation from Arabic to English or English to Arabic.
