Professional Translations from English into Hebrew or Hebrew into English
Israel is a young country that has received and continues to receive immigrants from around the world. According to the laws of the country, every Jew is entitled to citizenship, no matter where he or she may have been born. At the same time, 20% of Arab citizens also live in Israel. This cultural diversity makes the language particularly important.
The two official languages of Israel are Hebrew and Arabic. In practice, however, English is fast gaining a more important position than Arabic.
Revival of a "Dead" Language
Modern Hebrew has evolved from the language of the Old Testament, which became extinct 1,800 years ago. It survived in literature, liturgy, and science and was spoken among Jewish communities.
Like many other languages, however, Hebrew is subject to the increasing influence of English. State authorities make desperate efforts to counter this influence. For example, the University of Jerusalem publishes lists of alternative Hebrew expressions.
English as a "Fast-Track Official Language"
Despite all efforts, only half of adult Israelis speak Hebrew. Due to immigration from all over the world, English has a very important position in the country's everyday life. Bilingual signs are more often posted in Hebrew and English than in Hebrew and Arabic. Additionally, as a small country, Israel depends heavily on trade and economic cooperation with other countries.
The United Kingdom and the United States are among its most important trade partners. As a country at the forefront of science and technology internationally, Israel relies on the English language proficiency of its population. There is a high degree of international cooperation, especially among the younger and highly dynamic startup scene around Tel Aviv.
