Let’s face it. If you’re a business owner in Dubai who wants to reach locals, you have to have an Arabic presence online and offline. This is where Aurora Hikma steps in to help you. We do everything from Arabic translation and copywriting to social media management and events targeting locals.
I just want to give a big shout out to Bouchra Rebiai for some recent Arabic translation work she did for one of our clients’ press release. We really needed it in Arabic for the Saudi press and Bouchra came to the rescue and completely captured the narrative of the original statement and was able to reproduce it in Arabic as if it had been written in Arabic by the client in the first instance. Bouchra, thank you so much.
My biggest challenge was finding an Arabic translator with experience in marketing. I commissioned Aurora Hikma’s services when I was on a call with Bouchra and she brought to attention some incorrect grammar from a previous translation I had done. I loved the ease of communication and quick response times, and it was nice to know I was working with someone helpful.
Nowadays, small and medium business owners can easily verify the work of all kinds of experts in their fields with quick searches online, but the one thing they cannot easily verify is the work of a translator, due to the lack of knowledge of the other language.
A lot of my clients rely on Arabic-speaking friends to verify if a translation is good or not, but what if your friend is too busy or you don’t have an Arab friend?
