Writing & Translation


Objectives & Methods

Writing and Translation into and from Arabic is admittedly part of the broader picture of globalization, the ongoing process in which a language tends to gain recognition as a universal idiom of communication. AIDPS objectives are to transfer and aid the flow of knowledge to and from the Arab World. We have to admit that we are now lagging, not only in science and technology, but also in humanities, literature and most other fields due to lack of essential support and necessary research.

AIDPS written and/or translated publications are intended to contribute to bridging the knowledge gap and help the peoples and future generations of the MENA region to attempt to catch up with the world.
