Just thought I'd put this here in case anyone wants something translated from Arabic to English or vice versa.

I'll translate anything that takes less than 5 minutes for free. For bigger jobs, send me a PM with the text/details and I'll give you a price.


If you have any questions, ask here or send me a PM Smiley

I assumed "hawalders" is someone's nickname here on the forum (no capitalization, didn't sound like an Arabic name) so I just transliterated it. Is that right or did I make a mistake ?

hawala is the term referring to the informal value transfer system, like a western union, but not the same: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawala

a hawalder is a hawala exchanger, like the equivalent of a local western union agent

because this is informal, and generally no records are kept or reported, hawala is deemed illegal: http://www.newsday.com/iranian-convicted-of-illegally-sending-money-1.3814638

but with bitcoin, there is really no need for hawala.   the sender can buy bitcoins and send them to a family member or whomever.  the hold up is that the hawalders haven't discovered bitcoin yet and are still doing it the hard way.

I see. Thanks for explaining !

OK, so the right translation is

or

same thing, except with the English word for bitcoin because it's more easy to understand this way. (doesn't display like it's supposed to in left-to-right text though. the last line reads "next time Bitcoin be your own boss use" Roll Eyes)

JeromeS performed a complete translation of www.bitcoinnordic.com in about one day. After I had paid him he even reviewed the site and made sure everything looked right.

As I don't understand Arabic myself I can't personally attest to the quality of the translation, but I had another Arabic speaker read his translation and she assured me of the quality. I can highly recommend JeromeS!

MultiBit has a bounty for translating to Arabic:

 - http://multibit.org/bounties.html

The bounty total received will be paid proportional to the amount of translations completed.

The bounty just got set up today but probably will grow a little over the next days.  The bounty cumulative total can be seen here:
