The Value of Arabic Translation Services

Business, Language Service Provider (LSP)

Very few American-based global companies translate their websites or other content into Arabic. Yet, more than 420 million people around the world are native Arabic speakers. This represents a huge growth opportunity for companies.

Of course, English to Arabic translations require special considerations. The layout of written documents will likely be different between the two languages and because of the differences in script, it takes an experienced translator to get everything right.

These only scratch the surface of what you should be thinking when it comes to choosing an Arabic translation partner. The skilled translators, interpreters, transcriptionists, and project managers at DTS Language Services, Inc. are here to help. So, let’s take a look at additional points to consider.

Before you dive into your arabic translation project, there are some steps you should consider:

Step 1: Set Goals and Create a Plan 

How does translation fit into your company’s business strategy and goals? If your company is exploring an opportunity in the UAE, for instance, then Arabic translation is crucial.

Think through your process: who is responsible for interacting with the project manager and what makes sense in terms of timing?

Do you need translation alone or could you also need interpreting services, transcription, localization, etc.? 

Answering these questions will give you strong guardrails as you negotiate your Arabic language service needs.

Step 2: Research Your Target Audience

For every document or translation project, it’s important to consider who will be reading the translation. What is their education level? Where are they located? What are their preferences and expectations? Will they expect local references?

Knowing the answers to these questions will help you fine tune your written content with the appropriate tone and message. Your Arabic translator will be able to offer insights about tone and messaging as well. 

Step 3: Critical Content Needs Higher Quality Translation

Successful high quality Arabic translations requires a professional team who knows how much translation quality can impact your bottom line. Our team of linguistic experts deliver high quality language services on time and on budget. We treat every project with the attention to detail it deserves. That’s why translation clients have been coming to us for over 40 years.

Whenever we’re asked to edit written content that has been done by internal staff without translation experience or using a computer algorithm, meaning is almost always lost. Actually, editing a poor quality translation can be harder than simply starting from scratch. So, using a team of professional translators for your Arabic to English translation is always best when quality counts.
