Works of Russian writers to be translated into Arabic

Moscow, December 12, 2019

More than 20 books by Russian authors will be translated into Arabic before the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, which is to be held from April 15 to 21, 2020. The Russian Federation is to be the guest of honor on the next year fair.

According to Yuri Pulia, head of the Office of the Periodical Press, Book Publishing and Printing of the Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation, Russia's participation in the book fair is another step towards strengthening relations between the two countries.

“For 15 years, we have been observing how Russia and the United Arab Emirates are building partnership and strengthening ties. It is important that our relationship has grown into a shared love of language and culture”, said Yuri Pulia.

He noted that they work currently with the Sheikh Zayed Book Prize on the exhibition program: “We plan to translate 23-25 ​​books from Russian into Arabic specifically for the exhibition. This is not an easy task. We select books, enforce copyright, and look for translators.”
