Arabic translators examine written documents for meaning and recreate this meaning in another language, such as Arabic to English or vice versa. Most translators work with their native tongue as the target language; therefore, bilingual Arabic speakers will translate into or out of Arabic depending on which is their mother tongue. Translators should be familiar with the many types of translation, such as idiomatic and literal.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that freelance translators who work from home via the internet typically complete translation work . Arabic translators may also be able to find jobs in government bodies, such as the Army and FBI, who often need translators versed in various dialects. Translators sometimes specialize in fields ranging from technical, including medical and scientific, to literary. Areas of specialization will determine any extra vocabulary or comprehension knowledge needed.
