Company Profile

From Shams for Arabic to Shams for multiple languages

Ever since founding in 1986, we have consistently specialized in the Middle East languages of Arabic and Persian. More than half of our staff - even office and production people - understand Arabic and/or Persian. Notably, for Arabic, we have always used a combination of native-speaker translators and Japanese Arabists to provide meticulous translations.
And that track record has earned us the mark of respect and customer confidence echoed in the compliment: "SHAMS for Arabic".
And, now, to accommodate the needs of our clients, we provide translations in many other languages. We take care to offer services of the highest quality by taking the important role of liaising to link clients with countries around the globe.

Our company name "Shams" means "Sun" in Arabic.
