Arabic Interpreting & Translation Services

Aplomb Translations provides Arabic translation and interpreting services.

Arabic language, Semitic language spoken in a large area including North Africa, most of the Arabian Peninsula, and other parts of the Middle East. 

Scholars have struggled to define Arabic as a language. On the one hand, one can point to the language of the Qurʾān (or Koran, the sacred book of Islam) as the ideal archetype (or al-lughah al-fuṣḥah, “the most eloquent language”). Classical Arabic, in which most pre-modern literary works were composed, closely approaches that language. Modern Standard Arabic, which differs minutely from Classical Arabic in stylistic and lexical considerations, is used in most publications ranging from newspapers to novels and in formal broadcasts such as news programs and political speeches. 

On the other hand, spoken varieties of Arabic—some of which are mutually unintelligible—differ significantly. Such variation may in fact precede the written language by centuries. While these varieties tend to exhibit a number of common features, including the definite article *al- and the paradigmatic mafʿūl passive participle, these features are problematic in defining Arabic either because they are not found uniformly throughout all varieties of the language or because they can be found in other languages. In modern times the chief dialect groups are those of Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, and North Africa.

Likewise, the relationship of Arabic to the other Semitic languages remains a matter of debate. The most widely accepted theory, which classifies Arabic within a Central Semitic grouping, postulates a relationship close to Aramaic and the Canaanite languages based on the similarities between their respective verb structures. It is written in a North Semitic script that is likely descended from the Nabataean alphabet.
