Translations services are closely involved with one of the more famous stories in Egyptology. Found in 1799 by Napoleon Bonaparte, the Rosetta Stone, a broken part of a large stone stab that carried a decree from Egypt’s ruler at the time, was crucial to the translation of hieroglyphics. Today, it sits on display at the British Museum in London, and it’s one of the most popular exhibits.

Although hieroglyphics aren’t used today and haven’t been for centuries, there is still a big need to translate Egypt’s official language – Arabic. Continental Interpreting Services has experienced Egyptian translators that aren’t just fluent in Arabic but well versed in the various dialects of it spoken in the country. While our expert team of Egyptian translators likely won’t be helping you translate the next Rosetta Stone, their work is still just as important. They can help you break down the communication barriers between your culture and Egyptian culture. With our certified Egyptian interpreting services, you can transcend cultural barriers and bridge communication gaps to become inclusive with language.

Did you know that while Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) is Egypt’s official language and is used in most written documents and schools, Egyptian Arabic is the most commonly spoken language in the country? Probably not, so you need translators who understand the unique vernacular of the area in addition to MSA like the team of Egyptian translators at CIS to ensure your messages get translated accurately. While Egyptian Arabic and MSA share the same vocabulary, Egyptian Arabic has different sentence structures, different grammatical rules, and varied pronunciations for certain words and letters. At times, they can sound like two completely different languages!

For over 13 centuries now Arabic has been both the primary written and spoken language of Egypt. Prior to the Arab invasion in AD 639, ancient Egyptian was the language of both religious and everyday life for the majority of people in Egypt. However, by the turn of the 12th century, Ancient Egyptian was unilaterally replaced by Arabic which has now become the predominant language among both Egyptian Christians and Muslims. At CIS our team of Egyptian Arabic interpreters and translators are well versed across industries including medical, legal and small business.


From translations specific to different industries like legal, medical, and education to more generalized services for conferences, online meetings, or events, our certified Egyptian translation services can do it all and create more inclusive and productive environments by bringing people together through language. Give us a call at 800.201.7121 or visit our interpreting quote page to learn more!
