The commission

Translation from Arabic to English and editing the translation to ensure it follows Brill style requirements


Bourchier was instrumental in facilitating a co-publishing agreement between Brill and Darah for the publication of this journal. Under the new agreement Brill co-publishes four issues annually in Arabic and two issues in English. We also created a style guide for Darah, focusing primarily on this journal, and assist with Arabic–English translation and adapting the texts to Brill styles.

Below: Pages from the first issue of the recently launched co-publication between Brill and Darah, for which Bourchier translates Arabic scholarly articles into English.


‘I am positively impressed by the quality of the translation, which is outstanding.’
