About Us

We are a duo of twenty-somethings with a vision to change the landscape of the Arabic-speaking Internet by creating content on the behalf of your business, in order to add value to your brand as well as the lives of Arab consumers across the Middle East and North Africa and in smaller, scattered Arabic-speaking communities worldwide.

As Arabs with an excellent command of English – one of our co-founders is bilingual in English and Arabic, and the other runs an international business which relies heavily on English – we found ourselves equipped with an advantage many of our peers don’t have access to, if not fully, to some extent, at the very least. We can read valuable content in English, but cannot share it with many of our friends and family, due to the language barrier.

This is when Aurora Hikma was born, in order to gap the divide between English-speaking businesses and Arabic-speaking consumers worldwide by providing translation, social media management, and PR services in Arabic.
