Arabic Version Of StartUpArabia Officially Launched

| Jun 30, 2008 | comment 4 Comments

One of the points many people asked for after the official launch of StartUpArabia back in April is an Arabic version, insisting on how important they thought it was.

I couldn’t agree more, and it was always one of the main points in my plans for StartUpArabia; and so my answer was always that it was currently underway and that it would be ready soon enough.

Well that soon enough is now, and the Arabic version of StartUpArabia is officially launched here:

http://www.startuparabia.com/arabic/

There are a number of posts already available there that have been translated from the English version, and more of the older posts from the English version will be posted over time so that everyone who prefers Arabic can read them too. As for new articles and posts, they’ll mostly be posted on both English and Arabic versions of the site on the same day from now on.

I’m happy that this Arabic version is out now, mainly because it will widen the reach of the information about Arab startups, and also because I can now focus on the next side project for StartUpArabia, which should be coming soon too.

Last, but not least, I’d like to thank Eman Abu-Khadra, my wife, for her hard work with me on the Arabic version. If not for her help with the translation, this version wouldn’t exist now.

So, I leave you with: StartUpArabia – Arabic Version

Don’t hesitate to link to it and spread the word; I’d be really grateful.

    Thank you for this addition. We truly need more entrepreneurial material in Arabic for the Arab world.

    Thanks again,

    very good move Mohamed. its clear that your finger prints are all over the place :)
    having the Arabic version will demand more effort/time and energy from your side. i’d suggest starting to have a team of volunteers who would want to add content in both the Arabic and the English version just to release the effort from you side abit.

    keep it up!
