facebook Launches Arabic Version Beta, Watch Out Arabic Social Networks.
2 days ago Facebook announced on the homepage (once logged in) that face book in English UK is available. The drop down menu offered an array of international languages including Arabic as beta.
Before Arabic was only available in the facebook’s translation app. Now it is an option for any user to add it without installing the app.
The interface is now completely in Arabic, and was translated by facebook users themselves. Where translated content could be voted by users in order to verify its accuracy.
By far, millions of Arabs use facebook everyday, even those who do not know English well, I’ve seen guys with little English skills use facebook, even though they do not understand everything yet they managed to use its main tasks. Now all they have to do is go to account>>setting>> and chose Arabic as the language. Note that there are many Arabs who know English well and would feel more comfortable reading and writing in Arabic more than any other language.
