Here is a quick guide:
The Arabic Language
Modern Standard Arabic, is also currently the only official form of Arabic, is a descendant of the 6th century Classical Arabic and has many variations by country or region. Arabic is the official language of 22 members of the Arab League. About 420 million people speak the language natively.
The language used to write the Qur’an it’s also Classical Arabic. The basis of Modern Standard Arabic is also known as the Classical Arabic. Also, it’s still the language that many scholars use in class today.
Also, Spoken Arabic has many variations.
Arabic Interpretation Services
If you need Arabic interpretation services using a variation that is specific to a country or region (i.e. Western Arabic, Egyptian Arabic, Yemeni Arabic, etc), make sure you specifically mention this to your interpreter or language services provider.
Many English words are original derive from Arabic. Here are some examples:
- KOTON- cotton
- SUCCAR- sugar
- ALCOO’HOOL- alcohol
- LAYMOON- lemon
- GHAZAL- gazelle
- QEERAT- carat
- QITHARA- guitar
An important thing to note for those who need Arabic translations, however aside from Arabic interpretation services, is the Arabic alphabet and writing system. The Arabic script has 28 characters.
Text is written and read from right to left. Numbers are written from left to right.
Letters can change their form depending on whether they are written alone, or placed at the start, middle or end of a word.
Punctuation marks, as well as the rules in using punctuation, are the same as in English. However, some symbols are inverted or reversed such as the comma (،) and the question mark (؟).
