Arabic Website translation

Translating your website into Arabic: things to consider

Translating your website into Arabic is a little more tricky than standard left to right languages. Arabic, Urdu, Dari, Farsi, Hebrew and Kurdish are all right to left languages and this will mean some formatting of the layout will be required to make it work in the Arabic language.

Arabic website translation: How much of the site should be translated

Often it doesn’t make sense and it may be very expensive to translate the whole website into Arabic. If there are regularly updated sections such as ‘News’ or maybe a blog, in which new content is frequently added, it will make sense to exclude this from the Arabic translation. You can create an effective series of ‘mini-websites’ in Arabic which contains the main content of your website.

Arabic website translation: to flag or not to flag?

Many companies like to use flags to show the languages their website is translated into. Using a flag from an Arabic speaking country is only appropriate if your target audience is in that country. Arabic is spoken in many countries in the Middle-East and North Africa.
