Democracy Terminology
The Arabic Publication Center’s online terminology database is a reference for translators and activists involved in civic engagement and elections programming. This terminology database features key terms drawn from two reference works published by the center, Election Terminology: An English-Arabic Translator’s Guide to Frequently Used Terms and Phrases and Civic Participation Terminology.

Uniform language provides consistency in communication and messaging, which strengthens the work of the burgeoning democratic activist community in the Middle East and North Africa by standardizing terminology between countries, as well as benefiting the work of language professionals, including translators, interpreters, and proofreaders, who are involved in translating international best practices for an Arabic-speaking audience.
