The Arabic Linguist

Arabic Linguist You Can Trust

Shaimaa Riad

Hello! I’m Shaimaa

Entrepreneurial Arabic Linguist (LL.B.) (B.A.) 

I live and breathe Arabic. I translate from English to Arabic & specialize in legal, UN & EU affairs, as well as general & documentary translations since 2006.

Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and ideas, I love to take part in achieving your goals! You will be provided a wide range of translation services for you as a business customer or an individual client. I know that communication is the lifeblood of business and I do everything I can to help my clients succeed through my services.

You are neither dealing with a Freelancer nor an Agency! But you are dealing with what is best in Both Worlds ❤ 

Print Media Translation Services

Trending topics are just Arabized right to reach your target reader and/or client avatar! 

Financial Translation Services

Financial reports, audited accounts, nuanced agreements and detailed tax reports are just Arabized accurately while laser-focusing on their special jargon to take your business across the Arabic boarders.

Book Translation Services

Your books are Arabized but mind you we are disguised as if we are the author in order to hide the act of translation 🙂 

Arabic Transcreation

Your text is not just transcreated but transarabized with all the Arabian traits, manners, and culture to reach your direct audience. Transcreating into Arabic means rebuilding your creative texts by laser-focusing on their intended impact. The image you project is Arabized by maintaining the essence and emotional effect of the message, adjusting it to the Arabic target audience, and tweaking any cultural references. The final product is a culturally Arabic-appropriate piece that stays faithful to the original style, and tone while resonating locally.  

“If I’m selling to you, I speak your language. If I’m buying, dann müssen Sie Deutsch sprechen!”

General Translation Services

Let’s Arabize your general texts together and venture into the Arabic Market with confidence.

UN & EU Affairs Translation Services

Let’s translate and scrutinize in silence your UN & EU texts into their accurate Arabized renderings. Thanks to my translation clients who have given me the opportunity to subcontract to the European Commission, European Parliament, the Committee of the Regions, and the European Economic and Social Committee.

Legal Translation Services

Experience the Arabized legal drafting with me now! Thanks to the fact that I have my proven record of success in that field especially that I studied LAW to fully master the legal realm with  its brimming jargon and special system. Confidentiality 100% guaranteed!

Documentary Translation Services

Your documents are Arabized and translated ‘as is’ without any single intervention to its style nor tone while paying special attention to confidentiality!

Localisation Services

Your texts are localised in a process of adapting a product to a particular market, culture, or language. Translation is the act of conveying an idea from one language to another. Localization and translation are closely related, but localization is more than just translation. In order to localize a product, you have to deal with a lot of other things: cultural context, legal requirements, and so on!

Let’s Break Some Myths Part 2!


“Hi, would you be interested in a localization project? I’ve just seen you’re very active on Linkedin, so I decided to reach out!” Later on after my approval: “There’s one problem with my colleague – he has a consultant who’s telling him that only experts from the Gulf countries have the best Arabic! You might not want an #Egyptian completely different accent & words!”

Stop Language bias in our language industry?! 

A ringing bell to all potential clients out there who might be interested in Arabic translators! Arabic dialects: Maghrebi, Egyptian, Levantine, Gulf & even Darija are not being used in our written translation and/or localization services except upon request!

All of us Arabic Linguists whenever being approached by a client to translate any text we use Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), a simplified form of Classical Arabic used in formal media & international readings, apps, books, subtitled movies .etc!

Modern Standard Arabic is understood by every single Arabic reader, far from any slang or dialect which means your content will reach every single Arabic country with around 420 million speakers around the globe.

So please whenever you approach me with a project to be localized and/or translated into Arabic, approach me with CONFIDENCE & “Let your Ideas Echo in Arabic”.

Show Me The Why & The How!

Transarabizers Take the Tour

Because Translation Matters!

I know it’s hard to get across your meaning with another language involved, but don’t worry, I have been there and seen all this before! Words are chosen and rendered on a piece of paper or a document but without giving it the HUMAN touch that differentiates it from the Machine Translations popular nowadays!

With me, you will literally avoid being LOST IN Translation and will SMASH the IF.

Arabizations You Can Trust!

Arabization is more than just switching from a certain language into a cut-and-dry Arabic copy. Arabic is a culture, not just a language, and great Arabization means taking the essence of the words in front of you and arabizing them in a way that really speaks to your Arabic reader’s cultural identity.

Let Your Ideas Echo in Arabic!

I’ll read your work, understand every single detail, and make sure my Arabized rendering echoes your ideas in full. Whether you want to Arabize a business project or your personal documentations, involving technical or specific lexicons, I put as much care into transarabizing them as you did in writing them.

Success 100% Guranteed

No matter how tight deadlines maybe, my proven record of success ensures that quality is always the order of the day! I use the latest project management techniques and time management Apps to ensure your translation/ Arabization goes as smoothly as possible, meeting the highest industry standards from the first step. I’ve helped a number of companies, both large and small, to develop their products in the Arabic market from around the world.
