You Can Check Out Our Hassaniya Arabic Translation Services Now



Arabic is one of the biggest languages in the world, with more than 380 million people speaking it as their native language. But it’s a highly diverse language, with dozens of dialects that generally can’t be understood by speakers of other Arabic varieties. In that sense, it’s more like a group of languages than a single language. Modern Standard Arabic was developed as a literary standard that all Arabic speakers can learn, but individual Arabic variants, such as Hassaniya Arabic, have far less influence.


With around 5.2 million native speakers, Hassaniya Arabic isn’t the biggest variant of Arabic (that’s Egyptian Arabic, for the record), but it still commands significant influence in its region, used as the dominant language where it’s spoken. Educated Hassaniya Arabic speakers often speak French or Spanish as well, but Arabic remains the predominant language in the region. The problem is that translation services specifically tailored to Hassaniya Arabic are rare—and that’s why we at TranslationServices.com have created our own Hassaniya Arabic translation team.

Hassaniya Arabic: Arabic’s westernmost variety

Hassaniya Arabic—sometimes alternatively called Hassaniyya, Klem El Bithan, Hassani, Hassaniya, or Maure—is spoken primarily in Mauritania and Western Sahara, with smaller numbers of speakers in Mali, Senegal, Algeria, Libya, and Niger. Mali recognizes it as an official language, with Morocco recognizing it as a minority language in the disputed Western Sahara region. Hassaniya is most similar to other forms of Maghrebi Arabic, such as Moroccan Arabic or Algerian Arabic, but it remains quite distinct, partially thanks the influence it’s sustained from Wolof and Zenaga.


In most regards, Hassaniya Arabic grammar resembles that of any other variety of Arabic, particularly other ones classified as Maghrebi Arabic. Like other modern varieties of the language, Hassaniya Arabic has lost noun case markings and dual pronouns, which indicate two people (e.g., “we two,” “you two,” “those two”). But other features of Hassaniya are unique, such as its use of the prefix -u to form the passive voice. Another particularity of Hassaniya Arabic is that it attaches the prefix -a to adjectives to strengthen them, as seen in acaddal (“more polished”), derived from mcaddal (“polished”). The unique features of Hassaniya Arabic can render it challenging for translators, but that’s what our team is here for—our passionate and native-speaking Hassaniya Arabic translators can easily navigate the difficulties.
