A first in the Middle
translations by copywriters.
A translator's job
is merely to port content from one language
to another. A copywriter's mandate, however,
is to make content comprehensible, appealing
and, above all, relevant.
A translator works
objectively, aiming to produce "correct"
translations. A copywriter, on the other
hand, works subjectively, aiming to re-produce
content in a way that makes it read and
sound like it was an original to start with!
Few translators are
good at copywriting, and few copywriters
are good at translation. The Arabists, however,
are good at both.
Ensuring your Arabic
translation looks as good as it sounds.
We at The Arabists
believe translations shouldn't just sound
good or read well, but should be equally
polished in the way they are presented.
For us, elegantly formatted artwork and
documents are a specialty.
Because Arabic reads
from right to left, the media used for your
translated content will often need to be "flipped".
We provide you with artwork, documents and
other media which is formatted with your
target audience in mind.
Whether it's choosing
the right typeface for an advert, or re-paginating
an entire magazine, our skill will impress
