Harakat app launches in Dubai
App used an an educational tool for people learning Arabic
Dubai-based technology company, Multillect has announced the launch of its educational app "Harakat", in Dubai.
The app, which has already been downloaded over 100,000 times in Saudi Arabia and is available from the AppStore and Google Play, provides diacritics for Arabic text, to make it easier to read and understand.
Commenting on the launch of Harakat, Alibek Issaev, chairman of Multillect, said: "Languages are an important part of our cultural heritage, and we continually strive to make contributions for preserving the rich Arabic heritage. One of the highest priorities of our company is in the development of projects that are related to the Arabic language. Today, the company works on digital description and creates a unified morphological base for the Arabic language."
According Issaev, one of the key and unique features of Harakat, in addition to placing diacritics, is its educational and cultural aspect. "Its user-friendly interface is a great universal platform for education," he added.
Multillect's website states that the biggest issue for those who study Arabic is the absence of vowels in written Arabic. Short vowels are identified with diacritics, which are very important in defining the correct reading, meaning, and translation of text.
The application automatically places diacritics in Arabic text according to the rules of grammar, syntax, morphology, and Multillect believe the app is a perfect solution for anyone who wants to learn Arabic.
