Let’s Talk About Arabic UX Design
In this article, we underline the steps to creating a splendid Arabic UXD.
Arabic UX design is a buzz phrase that bears no difference in its core principals than standard UX design. It refers to the design of a specific experience, tailored to a specific crowd – in this case, the Arabs. Yet, whomever the user is, UXD shouldn’t lose its Human-centric glow.
Deciphering the general guidelines of Arabic UXD has become imperative to any Arab UX Designer.
Why? We’ll start off with some numbers from the Arabian Gazette: • 60% of Arabic speakers prefer browsing internet content in Arabic. • Arabic is the 7th most popular language on the web, and the 4th most popular on a global scale. • Less than 1% of the digital content is in Arabic language.
Based on the aforementioned numbers, the Arab online community finds itself hungry for more quality content in Arabic to satisfy the growing need of the 141M users. Hence, the demand for savvy Arab UX Designers is on the rise.
Similar to every UXD project, Arabic UXD follows specific mental models in its workflow, as well. However, before making any assumptions, you need to be aware of the differences that mark Arab users’ interactions with online products – in other words, their user experience.
