Algeria, Kuwait, Jordan, Somalia and many other countries are Arabic-speaking countries. The Arabic language is not limited to the Middle East, but it is spoken in North Africa. Standard modern Arabic is used rather widely in government agencies, industry institutions and the media.
Arabic language has classical and ancient roots and it has literary for many centuries. In Science, math, philosophy and other fields it had a prominent influence during the Middle Ages. It can be credited with having an influence over the European languages.
The war in Afghanistan and Iraq creates an even greater demand on translation services between English and Arabic. The need is of utmost urgency as governments try to communicate. Doors of opportunity are constantly being opened for Arabic translators. The oil industry, construction industry and the finance industry are other areas where such Arabic translation services are needed. Undoubtedly, the Middle East is a major arena of the global industry. Having or not having good translators between the two languages can make or break the industry.
When having international business discussions in Arab countries, the parties rely heavily upon Arabic translators to make sure that nothing is lost or misunderstood.
Although English is a world language, and students across the globe need to have sufficient grasp of it, this is not quite the same as having someone skilled in translating between languages. Expectation that one day everyone will speak English is unreasonable and unfounded.
The structure, form and phraseology of Arabic language is complex. Sometimes things can not be translated literally into Arabic language, even though it may make sense in English. Factors such as customs, values and culture play critical roles in day-to-day business transactions. Mistakes could lead to big offenses, insults and other deal-breaking situations.
