Arabic is primary language of almost 340 million people living mainly in Northern African and the Middle Eastern countries. It is spoken in Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Arabic Emirates, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania, Western Sahara, Tunisia, Sudan, Palestine (Gaza Strip and West Bank), Syria, Yemen, Oman, Qatar, etc.
It is well known fact that Arabic is one of the most difficult languages to learn, master and translate. Translating documents into Arabic is not easy either. Arabic is so complicated because this it requires a strong command of the developments and refinements needed to convey a specific message, especially in fields such as technology, law or modern business. Compared to other languages, technological terms are lacking in Arabic. Besides, technology has not had a strong impact on Arabic culture, which makes many modern concepts difficult to translate.
On the other hand, English is a rich and thriving language that has been greatly influenced by technology over the past decades. Adapting English content into Arabic is challenging since this language did not undergo the same recent changes. For instance, in the context of a business document, translating into Arabic is made difficult by the lack of nuances since there is only one word for “management” and “administration”. Both words would be translated as “Idara” in Arabic. However, both words have very different meanings in English and using the same Arabic word to translate both concepts could lead to some confusion. The English words “compute” and “calculate” are both translated as “Hisaab” in Arabic. It is very easy to lose the true meaning of an English sentence after translating it into Arabic.

Translators from Arabic into English
There are other issues with translating content into Arabic. For instance, there has been very little research done in this language regarding the development of computer resources. There are no programs that can check Arabic grammar and no Optical Character Reader (OCR). There are no search engines in Arabic either. Translators have to work in an environment where there are no standards. There are no methodologies or best practices for translators to follow when they work in Arabic. Translators have to follow their gut feeling and adapt a document as best as they can to preserve the meaning from English to Arabic. However, there are many instances where translators simply cannot translate a concept into Arabic and have to keep English words. This is why a lot of Arabic organizations rely on English terms to refer to specific concepts that cannot be translated into Arabic. You will find many English words in Arabic articles, brochures, websites, pamphlets and other marketing materials or business documents since there are simply no words that exist in Arabic to convey these ideas.
