Taghreedat, the Arab initiative extending 10 Middle Eastern countries in support of Arabizing digital content, is set to introduce the first Arabic Tech/Web 2.0 Dictionary. According to Gulf News, so far over 2,500 people have volunteered to take part in this new global glossary which will standardise Arabic definitions of online e-terms, such as “spam”, “twittering” and “retweets”.
As quoted in Gulf News, Co-founder of Taghreedat Sami Mubarak, says, “The glossary will break a big barrier because many users resort to combining English terminology with the Arabic text, so we want to change that and introduce the first Arabic technology and social media glossary,”
“Our goal is to increase Arabic e-content, whether written or audio, and to do that we have got to increase Arabic content.”
