The presence of science and technology in everyday life is such that it is essential to plan well in advance the management of technical translations into . Nowadays, translation of technical documents from or into Arabic (instructions books, technical proposals, Standard Operating Procedures or Material Data Safety Sheets) is crucial for companies wishing to establish in other territories like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates…  The difficulty for a translator is twofold: to translate technical terminology correctly, but also to adapt to the local speech culture of your Arabic potential leads.

Text Strings

Translation and localization, from Arabic or into Arabic, of software text strings requires good planning and checking. The translation of software strings is a specific area of technical translation. First of all, and before the translation process begins, the project manager has to correctly import the files in order to extract the text to be translated, leaving the code intact and respecting the character encoding. Strings usually contain isolated and out-of-context words and commands. For that reason, professional technical Arabic translators need a reference and some context to do their job well. It is always a good idea to get some screenshots of the software interface.

A quick overview of the Arabic language

Arabic belongs to the southern group of Western Semitic languages. It is based on dialects of North Arabia and spread with Islam in the Middle East and North Africa.

The Arabic script evolved from the Nabataean alphabet used in Aramaic. It has been used since the 4th century AD. , but the oldest document, an inscription in Arabic, Syrian and Greek, dates from 512 A.D.

Aramaic has fewer consonants than Arabic, so during the 7th century new Arabic letters were created by adding dots to the existing ones to avoid ambiguity. More diacritical signs were introduced to indicate short vowels, but these are usually only used to ensure that the Koran is read aloud without mistakes.

There are two types of written Arabic:

  • Classical Arabic: the language of the Koran and classical literature It differs from modern standard Arabic mainly in style and vocabulary, with archaic words. All Muslims are expected to recite the Koran in the original language, however many rely on translations to understand the text.
  • Modern Standard Arabic (اللغة العربية الفصحى / al-luġatu l-ʿarabiyyatu l-fuṣḥā): the universal language of the Arabic-speaking world understood by all Arabic speakers. It is the language of almost all written and television publications and academic activities.

Each Arabic-speaking country or region also has its own variety of colloquial Arabic. These colloquial varieties of Arabic appear in written form in some poems, caricatures and comics, plays and personal letters. There are also translations of the Bible into most variants of colloquial Arabic.
