Arabic translation bureau

The Arabic language is derived from a Semitic language which was spoken in the Arabian peninsula. During the birth of Islam around the sixth century the Arabic language became closely associated with the religion.

Islam spread rapidly over the Middle East and North Africa, taking the Arabic language with it. In the process local languages disappeared and more and more people spoke Arabic. Worldwide there are now some 280 million people whose mother tongue is Arabic .

About Arabic

Arabic script

Arabic is written from right to left and the Arabic alphabet comprises 28 letters. Numbers are also written from right to left. Some Arabic letters take on a different form, depending on their position within a word (at the start, in the middle, at the end or on their own). This means that Arabic is regarded as a complex language. There are a number of Arabic scripts, including ‘Thuluth’ and ‘Kufic’. These are the best-known Arabic scripts which are used in mosques.
