Name - Word Translation in Arabic
Note that when it comes to names or words translation you will notice that Arabic is missing some sounds/ letters that you might take for granted in English, such as the sound "g" as in "good", so another letter would replace it such as "k ك " or "gh غ " depending on which one is close to the original sound. On the other hand there is a "g" in Arabic which is a sound that can be found in words like "gym" "gesture" "George" "Georgia" ... because that "g" sounds like "j".
V doesn't exist in Arabic; we usually replace it by "f", but still can be read as "v" if the person knows what you're talking about or recognizes the word as a foreign word. For example if your name is David, even if I write it as Dafidديفيد in Arabic, the reader could still pronounce it as David because the person is familiar with this name and knows how it’s pronounced originally. Just like an English person who reads Psychology as Sicology, even if there is a "p" sound there and an “h” after c.
By the way, P doesn't exist in Arabic either. So we usually replace it by "b", and just like the letter "v", a person could recognize the word and pronounce it as "p" even if it's written with "b", for example even if I write "Bakistan" in Arabic, the reader will still say "Pakistan", because that’s how you hear it pronounced regardless of how it’s written.
One more thing you should know about Arabic is that we write names the way they sound phonetically, for example the following words are all written the same in Arabic. Couscous - Koskos - Kouskous- Kouskouce - coskos as كسكس because they all sound the same, that could be a problem sometimes, for example if your name is Craig it will look just like Greg, also if your name is Danielle (female name) it may simply look like Daniel (male name).
Finally you need to know that Arabic tends to use less or no vowels, usually the burden is on the reader who should be familiar with the word without the need of vowels, for more information please check the vowels lesson from the main menu.
