Translation companies can help you serve Arabic speakers online

Translation companies can help you to prepare web content in Arabic, wherever you are in the world.

Arabic speakers can be found in almost every country of the world, but while they account for over 5% of the global population, Google estimate that only 3% of web content is available in the language.

The search engine giant is now taking steps to correct this disparity, with action focusing on its Middle East operations.

Maha Abouelenein, head of communications for the Middle East and North Africa, writes on the Official Google Blog that the 30-day itinerary includes Google+ Hangouts on how more Arabic web content can be made available.

Sessions looking at Arabic-language channels on YouTube and the celebration of National Arabic Web Day on December 12th add to the events planned.

For webmasters elsewhere in the world, it’s a good opportunity to hire translation companies to prepare Arabic-language versions of your site content.

Publish it within the next 30 days, and you can benefit from Google’s campaign, making your new content available at a time when the issue will be on many people’s agendas worldwide.
