The Middle East is the birthplace of the Abrahamic religions and their ancient civilisations. It is intricate, fascinating and diverse.
Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Yemen are among the nations that make up this region. Nearly 60% of the population in the Middle East are under the age of 25.
We are glad to provide you a comprehensive package of services for all widely spoken Middle Eastern languages, including the following:
The Persian language, often known as Farsi, is a member of the Indo-Iranian language family. Whether you call it Persian or Farsi, it is the only official language spoken in Iran, despite that country’s large population and diversity of ethnic groups. Most Iranians are native speakers of Persian.
Over the past 15 years, we have served wide variety of clients using our in-house Farsi team, complemented by a network of trusted contractors in a variety of industries. We're pleased to have helped bring localised products to the more than 110 million native speakers of Farsi.
Our experience extends to the two Persian dialects spoken in neighbouring countries; Dari in Afghanistan and Tajik in Tajikistan, both of which are also recognised as official languages.
Our services do not stop at translating into these languages, as we also work from them into English, German, French and other languages.
We would like to emphasise that we strictly adhere to European Union laws regarding the sanctions placed on specific countries, and every team member satisfies the requirements for working on any project for all major international brands.
Did you know that before 1928, Turkish was written using a modified version of Arabic script? Well, in the 20th century, the government replaced the Arabic lettering with an adapted version of the Latin alphabet, to modernise Turkey at that time.
Turkish, the most extensively spoken Turkic language, is estimated to have between 80 and 90 million native speakers. Turkish belongs to the Altay branch of the Ural-Altaic linguistic family. Both Turkey and Northern Cyprus use it as their official language.
Companies looking to expand into international markets can take advantage of Turkey's central location thanks to the country's burgeoning economy. As a result, there will be great opportunities and an increased demand for localisation in this market for any global businesses wanting to develop their product lines there.
Taking video game localisation as an example, the 30-million-strong Turkish gaming community has shown overwhelming support for video games translated into Turkish. But in order to make the most of this opportunity, it is crucial to familarise yourself with the target market for your product and choose a localisation partner that can address your specific needs, from linguistic and cultural standpoints as well as from a technical perspective.
Over the last decade, we've built a strong reputation as a leading supplier of Turkish localisation services in the Middle East, with a team of native speakers spread throughout the country. One of our greatest accomplishments is that we were able to meet a 10-day deadline on a two-million-word translation project. Disputes were resolved promptly, competently and within the allotted budget.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need support or guidance on any aspect of the Turkish language and culture.
Due to the fact that Hebrew is both one of the most challenging languages and cultures to learn and understand, it plays an essential part in the marketing expansion strategy of any business.
And this makes Hebrew localisation a requirement for almost all industry sectors and product categories.
There are approximately 9 million native Hebrew speakers who currently use Modern Hebrew as their primary official language, 7 million of whom have a native level of proficiency.
EAST Localize possesses the necessary assets and knowledge to offer translation and localisation services for the Hebrew market. These services include the ability to anticipate and resolve any issues that may crop up during project progression.
Please get in touch with us if you would like complete information on our services and prices presented in Hebrew.
The Kurdish language emerged between 4,000 and 2,000 years ago. Its three primary dialect subgroups are Northern Kurdish, Central Kurdish and Southern Kurdish.
Kurmanji, the most common northern Kurdish dialect, is spoken in Kurdistan in Turkey, in Syria, and in the former Soviet Union, as well as the far northern reaches of Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan (where it is known as ‘Behdini’). Kurmanji is the native tongue of more than two-thirds of Kurds (65%). (Approximately 15 million people). In Turkey, Kurmanji is written in the Latin alphabet; in the former Soviet Union, it is written in Cyrillic.
Sorani is a Central Kurdish dialect spoken by Kurds in Iran and Iraq. Sorani uses Arabic script and adopts many Arabic spellings, although the language sounds distinctive. Because an educational system in Sorani Kurdish was permitted to emerge in Iraq based on the Sulaymaniyah dialect, despite Sorani being spoken by fewer than a quarter of Kurds, it has the best-established literary legacy.
An assortment of regional dialects that are mostly spoken in Iran and certain regions of Iraq are collectively referred to as southern Kurdish. The wider Southern Kurdish dialect group includes more than nine distinctive Kurdish dialects.
EAST Localize has a team of linguists covering all these Kurdish linguistic peculiarities, so we can help you reach your intended audience effectively.
