Your Gate to the Arab World

With 293 million native speakers, and 422 million total speakers around the world,, Arabic is the 5th most spoken language in the world. It is the largest member of the Semitic language family, which also includes languages like Hebrew and Aramaic. It is written from right to left (RTL), in a cursive style, and includes 28 letters. Its graceful script, magnificent style and rich vocabulary give the language a unique character and flavor.

Today, Arabic is an official language in 22 countries, in addition to many countries bordering on the Arab World, like Mali, Niger, Chad, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and Somalia, southern Turkey, and southwestern Iran where Arabic is widely spoken. With the migration of Arab nationals to countries outside of the Arab World, the Arabic language has spread to practically all corners of the world. Moreover, Arabic has held the status of official language at the United Nations since 1974.

Many other languages have borrowed words from Arabic, because of its importance in history. Some English words that can be traced to Arabic are sugar, magazine, cotton, algebra, alcohol, and Emir.

Many Language Service Providers Translate to Arabic, but dbGroup Arabizes your message

Confused by the many varieties and dialects of the Arabic language?

  • The Classical Arabic which is the language of the Arab literary heritage and the Qur’an
  • The Modern Standard Arabic which is the commonly used as official language today. It is the language of books, media, education, and formal situations, but not the language of everyday speech.
  • Arabic Dialects (‘amiya) which differs quite significantly from one country to another, as Arabic speakers use their local dialects


Arabic speakers often use more than one variety of Arabic within a conversation or even a sentence; an important factor in the mixing or changing of Arabic is the concept of a prestige dialect:  The formal Arabic language carries a considerable prestige in most Arabic-speaking communities, depending on the context.
