Professor Adnan Eidan, Executive Director of ATA for Arab Software Technology in London, an Iraqi expatriate, stressed the need to pay attention to the Arabic language and its status in the world, pointing out that: "It is the language of our religion and law. It is our duty as Arabs and Muslims to teach it optimally."
This came during an interview held by the Al-Kafeel Network on the sidelines of his lecture hosted by the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, which was held on Wednesday, 30 Jumada I 1440 AH, corresponding to February 6, 2019 in the Hall of Imam al-Hassan (peace be upon him), and dealt with the topics of Arabic translation in the Internet by computer and the problems that accompanied it, as well as other translations of other languages than Arabic.
Adding: "The lecture focused on the issues of the Arabic language and how to deal with them using computer and software technologies. We talked about the subject of automatic translation, automatic correction, processing of books and libraries, how texts can be read by a robot. We have also talked about historical issues related to the transfer of knowledge and sciences from one language to another, and how it can have an influence on the strength of society and the power of civilization."
Indicating: "The attendees in the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine were interested about this subject of the Arabic language processing through the computer, especially since many of the information we mentioned in the lecture is not mentioned in the media, as only specialists who share these kind of scientific information. But in spite of this, there was a clear interaction of the attendees who asked many important questions. So all the thanks to the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine and the Department of the Islamic and Human Knowledge Affairs for the hospitality, and for shedding the light on such important and vital topic highlighting our Arabic language."
