The Origin of The Arabic Language
When considered as a single language, Arabic is the sixth most spoken language globally. The term “Arabic” usually refers to three main categories – Classical Arabic, “colloquial” Arabic and Standard Arabic.
Classical Arabic is the language of the Qur'an and is considered to be the parent tongue of most varieties of spoken, or “colloquial”, Arabic. Arabic has a number of spoken varieties, many of which are mutually unintelligible. In fact, many dialects would be considered separate languages on purely linguistic grounds but are grouped together as “Arabic” for political or ethnic reasons.
Standard Arabic is the standard written language used across the Middle East and North Africa. Most printed materials in the Arab world are written in Modern Standard Arabic, including books, newspapers, magazines, official documents, and educational primers. However, despite this widespread understanding, it is not commonly used in speech.
The many complexities surrounding Arabic make expert translation essential. Our location-based translators bring you the necessary linguistic and cultural experience to ensure your translations are accurate and appropriate.
Another fact: The English words "admiral", "coffee", "mattress", "orange" and "zero" are all of Arabic origin.
