Al Arabiya To Launch New Subtitled Service Via English Website Service To Be Unveiled Today At The News Channel's First 'Global Discussion' Forum In Dubai

DUBAI, UAE, November 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Al Arabiya News Channel, the region's leading news station, will today launch a state-of-the-art subtitling service via its English-language website ( http://www.alarabiya.net/English), allowing English-speaking audiences to follow its Arabic news bulletins and programs thanks to a new instant translation technology.

The new service, called ' View More', is set to be launched during the first "Al Arabiya News Global Discussion" forum, which will be held today ( Saturday November 30 th). The forum, conducted in English, will host an international group of political, cultural and media personalities.

Abdulrahman Al-Rashed, General Manager of the Al Arabiya News Channel, which this year celebrates its 10-year anniversary, says  that "the new subtitled video service on the English website will grant Al Arabiya a cutting edge, allowing us to broadcast simultaneously in several languages and enhance our presence on additional platforms".

"In the past ten years, Al Arabiya became renowned for its unique coverage of the region and the world, as well as its exclusive interviews, and with the launch of this service, we will enable millions of viewers to benefit from our rich content in their own language and through their preferred platforms," he added.

The translated broadcast service, which is one of many features of Al Arabiya's redesigned English website, will provide a number of key news bulletins and programs, fully subtitled in English, one hour after their original broadcast time in Arabic.

Users of the site will also be able to search the Al Arabiya News Channel's entire 24-hour output in English, with the ability to download video clips and see subtitles showing translations of the original Arabic broadcasts.

With the launch of the new service, Al Arabiya will become the first TV channel to use this service, employing technology pioneered in the United States.

Faisal J. Abbas, Editor-in-Chief of the English-language Al Arabiya News website, said the new design and features of the site "seek to answer the needs of the modern internet browser, in the era of apps and handheld devices".

He added: "On behalf of the web team, I would like to thank the channel's management for their confidence and vision which enabled us to provide this service, and I would like to thank our colleagues at the technical department and operations for the great efforts in making this service available."
