Translations for the Middle East and Africa

Did you know, several African languages are whistled or drummed to communicate over long distances?

Throughout history, the Middle East has been a major centre of world affairs. It is an economically, politically, culturally and religiously sensitive area that requires special care with document translation. Languages of the Middle East include Arabic, Persian and Turkish, as well as Hebrew (in Israel) and many more.

Arab expansion into Africa in the 7th century left most Northern African countries speaking Arabic, including Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Sudan and Somalia.

Journey further into the continent and another 2,000 - 3,000 languages can be found.  The high linguistic diversity of many African countries has made language policy a vital issue. African countries are becoming increasingly aware of their linguistic heritage and most language policies today aim to promote multilingualism.

The Middle East and Africa have a combined population of well over a billion people, many of whom are only recently being exposed to the communication media we take for granted in Western culture.

At Blue South, we offer the skilled translation you need to reach this vast audience. Our most frequently requested languages for the area are Arabic and Hebrew.
