E-books Put the Accent on Arabic

January 26, 2012 http://www.thenational.ae/thenationalconversation/industry-insights/technology/e-books-put-the-accent-on-arabic When Rasha Suleiman curls up with a tablet to read a good electronic book, she sometimes comes across old classics written by Arab poets from centuries ago. The only problem, though, is their works are almost always translated into a language other than Arabic.

That could be about to change.
