SAEA members have recognized a need to unify and standardize technical engineering language from foreign terms for Arab native speakers, equipping the Arabic language with definitions and terms for new science and engineering vocabulary.
This need has been identified as there is a significant lag of Arabic Science and Engineering vocabulary, translation and definitions, including numbers and examples. There is also a great deal of variation in the Arabic engineering and scientific terms used in different countries. In structural engineering, even simple common terms like beam, slab, column, and wall vary significantly between Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt, and Lebanon. Increasingly, GCC countries are using english directly while north African Arab nations use a mix of French and Arabic in their engineering education.
SAEA engineers are well equipped to provide this unified technical language given their combined expertise in engineering and its terms in both English and Arabic, and in the US as well as globally.
