English to Dari Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Dari and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Dari and Dari to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Dari: Arabic ↔ Dari; Spanish ↔ Dari; French ↔ Dari; German ↔Dari; Italian ↔ Dari; Portuguese ↔ Dari; Russian ↔ Dari; Japanese ↔ Dari; Chinese ↔ Dari; Hindi ↔ Dari; to name but the most popular... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Dari Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Dari to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Dari to English language translation resources – including experienced Dari language translators (native-speaking Dari if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Dari language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Dari as a native language may not 'translate into' Dari language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Dari and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Dari language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Dari translation assignment process for information on our Dari translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Dari language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Dari translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

Dari (Persian) or Dari Persian is a name for the Persian language and in particular it is the term insisted on by Afghan authorities for the Persian used in Afghanistan. Dari is also known as Eastern Persian.
Some people do not consider the Persian spoken in Afghanistan to be a separate dialect. They consider it to be just Persian. Dari is used by certain scholars in Tajikistan and Iran, including Mahmoud Dowlatabadi, to refer to the Persian language. It is also believed by some that Dari Persian should not be called Afghanistani Persian, because it already existed centuries before the creation of Afghanistan, or the use of the word Afghanistani. Linguists prefer the terms Western Persian (Farsi) for the spoken Persian in Tehran, and Eastern Persian (Dari) for the Persian spoken in most of Afghanistan, eastern Iran & in Pakistan. The language name of Afghanistan was officially changed from Farsi to Dari due to political reasons in 1964.
