Our Translation Services Are Now Available for Algerian Arabic

Arabic is one of the biggest languages in the world, spoken across large swaths of the Middle East and North Africa. But describing Arabic as a single language is rather misleading. Numerous varieties have developed across the Arabic-speaking world, such that speakers of one Arabic dialect often can’t understand speakers of another. Modern Standard Arabic is an artificial written standard meant to unite all Arabic speakers—but if you’re looking for translation services for a specific variant, such as Algerian Arabic, that’s a bit harder to find.

Around 36 million people speak Algerian Arabic as their first language, making it a major variety of Arabic. Some 75% to 80% of Algerians speak the variant as their native tongue, with most of the remainder speaking Berber languages like Kabyle—and these minority language speakers generally master Algerian Arabic as a second language. Algerian Arabic is gaining prominence as a written language, with the first novel written in the language published in 2021. As Algerian Arabic grows in importance, we at are thrilled to introduce our new Algerian Arabic translation services.

What is the Arabic of Algeria like, anyway?

Algerian Arabic is, of course, the variety of Arabic native to Algeria, a subdialect of Maghrebi Arabic. For the most part, it’s mutually intelligible with Moroccan Arabic and Tunisian Arabic, spoken to its west and east, respectively. Algerian Arabic vocabulary is mostly Semitic, but the variant has taken influence from numerous other languages, including the country’s indigenous Berber languages, French, Spanish, and Turkish. Native speakers typically refer to the language as Darja, Derja, or Dziria, derived from the word for “colloquial dialect.”

Algerian Arabic’s grammar is, naturally, similar to the grammar of other Arabic varieties. It features two grammatical genders—masculine and feminine—with masculine nouns typically ending with a consonant and feminine nouns with a. Gender determines the plural suffix a noun takes: it’s -in for masculine nouns and -at for feminine ones. Verbs are conjugated for person, with the second- and third-person singular forms different for men and women while the first-person pronouns remain the same regardless of gender. Unlike some other Arabic varieties, Algerian Arabic doesn’t distinguish the gender of pronouns in the plural. The complexities of Algerian Arabic grammar can make the language hard to translate—but with the care of a native-speaking translator, you won’t have to worry.
