Join the worldwide bab.la community today and become a part of creating the best English-Arabic dictionary in the world. The dictionary grows with every Arabic word added, and as the Arabic wordlist grows it becomes more useful for everyone. The Arabic language is developing all the time, and how we translate English to Arabic is also changing. With our users contributing and sharing their knowledge the English-Arabic dictionary is always up to date. Depending on in what context an Arabic word is used it may have very different translations. Some very specific Arabic vocabulary may not even be found in traditional English-Arabic dictionaries. New English or Arabic words suggested for addition to the dictionary need to be checked for any errors such as spelling mistakes and incorrect grammar. For this reason each new Arabic translation must have 10 votes from users for it to be added to the English-Arabic dictionary. Before a new term is confirmed it still shows up in the results for searches in the English-Arabic dictionary, but is clearly marked as an unverified Arabic translation.
