Due to the lack of Arabic resources of translated material (whether press, researches, or documentaries), we have launched Tarjama in an attempt to fill the huge gap in this regard.
Tarjama seeks to inform, educate and create awareness among Syrians and Arabs concerning:
- What the Western media publishes about their cause so that they be aware of the way international policies deal with it.
- How the Western media discusses the subject of Islam and Arab society.
- How the Arab affairs is debated by think tanks and Western’s high quality research and study houses.
During the past year our professional translation team worked tirelessly to provide the Arab readers with the most important and fresh materials that discusses issues of interest to them. Our achievements record the following production:
Translating 1300 press and research materials from 8 international languages (English, French, Dutch, Hebron, Persian, Turkish, Russian, and Swedish).
And… Translating 145 films and video clips (documentaries, seminars, press reports and breaking news).
Objectives & Message
Tarjama informs, educates, creates awareness, and spreads knowledge among Arabs concerning issues of interest to them that they cannot find in their local media and press outlets. It is a project for bridging the gap of knowledge between the West and Middle East.
