There is no doubt that the translation generally, and translation into Arabic in particular are important in transfer of knowledge and exchange of science and ideas between nations. King AbdulAziz University is struggling in this regard, and in support of its efforts, Translation Unit in CEES is translating the most important books, booklets and brochures concerned with the knowledge, science and environmental issues in various fields from English into Arabic, taking into account purchasing the rights of translation and publication of what is necessary, and publication after the completion of translation in agreement with Scientific Publishing Center in the university or private publishers. On the other hand, The Unit is translating from English and Arabic and vice versa, for periodic reports, contracts, correspondence and documents of the transactions of CEES as well as follow-up, adjust and update the content of the English homepages of the Center’s website.
