7 Arabic Friendly Tools for Hybrid Teams

Updated: Apr 29

It’s no surprise that remote teams rely heavily on technology. After all, it is because of these tools that we can work virtually and create value independent of location.


Throughout our work with clients across the Middle East, we noticed a shortage of Arabic-friendly remote work tools despite the fact that 274 million people worldwide speak Arabic. So, to help these speakers and teams find the right tech stack to collaborate, we set out to list effective tools that are either Arabic first or support the Arabic language to enable Arabic-speaking teams to create value for their organizations.
