Arabic is the umbrella term for a large number of dialects and varieties that can differ greatly from one another. To overcome these differences, Modern Standard Arabic was created, a language for official documents, educational purposes, and the communication between speakers of different dialects.
Approximately 300 million people in North Africa and the Middle East speak Arabic as their first language, namely in Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Djibouti, Somalia, the Comoro Islands, Jordan, Lebanon, the Palestinian territories, Syria, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Yemen, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Arabic is also one of the official languages in Gambia, Chad, Eritrea, and – as not everyone knows – Israel. In addition, many people outside these countries speak it as a second language.
Modern Standard Arabic, the language in which most books are written, is understandable to most Arabic-speaking people. And due to the large-scale spread of Egyptian films, many also understand Egyptian-Arabic. But in daily use, due to the many dialects and varieties, it is often difficult for inhabitants of different countries to properly understand each other. As such, working with Arabic is no simple matter, and the purpose of the translation is a deciding factor.
In order to optimally serve our clients, we do not work with translators in an office in the Netherlands, but with in-country translators: translators who live and work in their country of origin. Translators who have an optimal feel for their own language and culture. As a result, we work with a large number of translators.

In addition to the aforementioned in-country translators, we offer you even more quality guarantees. We are in possession of the highest achievable European quality standards for translation agencies: ISO 9001 and ISO 17100. These standards ensure that we and all of our translators meet the strictest quality requirements. We also give you a 100% satisfaction guarantee and a lowest price guarantee. However, we understand that you may be sceptical; therefore, you can visit this independent website to read what our clients think of us.
