Google announced the return of Arabic Web Days, an initiative to boost the amount of Arabic content on the Internet. Arabic Web Days, which was launched last year, aims to bridge the gap between the number of Arabic speakers online and the percentage of Arabic content on the web. The effort is conducted in liaison with several regional and international partners as well as a variety of online and offline activities and events throughout the MENA region. This year’s initiative expands on the belief that “It’s Better in Arabic”.
Arabic Web Days aims to spark ecosystems of partners and engage users and Arabic speakers worldwide to actively take part in enriching and boosting the amount of Arabic content online by creating it. Users can create all types of content during the month-long effort which kicked off on the 17th of November and culminates on the 18th of December; World Arabic Language Day.
The month-long series between the 17th of November and the 18th of December will utilize a number of online and offline events that aim to engage users to join the movement to accelerate digital Arabic content creation in MENA. ● Hosting an infographics competition in partnership with Taghreedat, techwd blog, tajseed and supported by twofour54 creative lab.
