Professional Arabic Translation
The Middle East and Arabic region is a very large consumer market, with over 20 countries that encompass 220 million Arabic-speaking people. The Arabic-speaking region has experienced exponential growth in high speed Internet access over the last 5 years. Arabic translation services are absolutely essential in order to convey your message and content to the Arabic speakers in terms that they can understand. Although many Arabic speakers have some familiarity with the English language, the most effective means for reaching this growing market is through Arabic websites, Arabic software, and Arabic language documentation.
Arabic translation is just one component in a larger process known as Arabic globalization. Adapting your product's software, documentation, and website functionally to be linguistically, and culturally appropriate for Arabic speakers makes up the process of Arabic globalization.
Arabic Website Translation
Regional customers are four times more likely to purchase products or services online if website content is translated into their language, according to research by IDC. Arabic website translation services range from simple, HTML-only Arabic websites to complex, database-driven Arabic web applications. The translation company you select to localize your Arabic websites must be proficient in translating source file content like Java scripts, HTML, XML, XLIFF, database exports, graphic files, PHP files, FLASH and action script files.
