Arabic Business Considerations
While we provide services for many companies with an existing Arabic market presence, others we serve are considering entry into Arabic markets or are expanding into this area.
When deciding whether to enter the Arabic-speaking market, companies should consider the following facts:
- Arabic is spoken by about 280 million people, who are native speakers of one or more of the 12 dialects listed below and is the official language of 26 countries.
- The most populated Arabic country is Egypt (over 65 million people), followed by Algeria and Morocco.
- Colloquial Arabic is a collective term for the spoken varieties of Arabic used throughout the Arab world, which differ radically from the literary language. The main dialectal division is between the North African dialects and those of the Middle East, who often are unable to converse with each other.
(Egypt) Considered the most widely understood and used "second dialect"
(Tunisian, Algerian, Moroccan, and western Libyan)
(extinct, but important role in literary history)
(with a dialect continuum into Chad)
(Syrian, Lebanese, Palestinian, and western Jordanian)
(Gulf coast from Kuwait to Oman, and minorities on the other side)
