Arabic is one of the most challenging languages to transcribe for several reasons, including its fast pace, illogical sentence structure and unusual pronunciation thanks to its 28 phonemes (pronounced letters) compared to English’s only 21.

What’s more, Arabic is spoken with so many different accents, pitches, inflections and dialects making transcribing it a difficult and lengthy process, which most transcriptionists won’t have the skillset to do well.

Transcribers need to be fast and accurate, and they need to know and understand the language they are working on, which is why we only employ native-speaking Arabic translators and transcribers with an outstanding level of linguistic competency.


Arabic is spoken throughout the Arab World, but there are many different regional dialects depending on where people come from.

Modern Standard Arabic (MSA.) also known as Classical Arabic, is a standardised and modern dialect of the Arabic language used in writing and in most formal speech‍. It is based on the Classical Arabic that was used in the Qur’an and Umayyad and Abbasid texts from the 7th century, but it also retains traces of older pronunciations.

MSA is mandatory for official purposes in many Arab nations, and when transcribing in Arabic, it’s important to be aware of the different levels of Arabic, since Modern Standard Arabic is used in newspapers, official documents and texts.

MSA is the most widely spoken dialect of Arabic. It is taught in universities around the globe and it is the only written and spoken form of Arabic that is understood throughout the Arab-speaking world without additional study or training.

By using MSA in your business communications, you will enhance the prestige of your company’s communications and demonstrate respect for your customers’ culture.


Arabic is a beautiful, rich and intriguing language that’s spoken throughout North Africa and the Middle East. It’s also a language that comes with its own set of unique challenges. Many facets of this language make it difficult to transcribe, read and translate.

Arabic is a so-called ‘script’ language. It’s a whole different mindset and a new way to approach everything from names and numbers to conversations and speeches. It is also a language that is written from right to left making it stand out among the other languages spoken in the world today.

Arabic writing is an art in which the letters are not joined together like they are when you write in English. Arabic also has three different sounds for each letter, depending on when it is pronounced. This is especially difficult for people who do not know the language well or who are used to writing in English. When writing in Arabic, the spacing between words needs to be adjusted; otherwise, they may run into one another and create confusion when reading them back.

The complicated nature of this language is exactly why finding the right agency for your Arabic transcription and translation projects is crucial.


Arabic is a beautiful, deeply cultural and historically important language that is spoken by the approximate 350 million people across 29 countries and over 400 million speakers across the globe. With this incredible number of people, it’s essential to provide them with information in their own language.

It has been described as the fastest growing language in the world, making it a prime candidate for global integration. The use of Arabic in business is also growing significantly which is why you need professional Arabic Transcription Services to ensure your business, government and private sector organisations meet their Arabic translation and transcription needs and that your core trademarks, services and product names are completely transliterated into Arabic script correctly.
