Multilingualism

Arta FM has produced and broadcast many multilingual, multicultural radio shows from its Amuda, Qamishli and Bochum studios, focusing on local cultures and local communities.


The shows are typically presented by two or three, and even four, presenters from different backgrounds in different local languages at the same time (Kurdish, Arabic, Syriac and Armenian).


To help its producers and presenters with this quite complex task, Arta has developed a “Multilingualism Policy” to guide the effective production of such programs.


Arta was perhaps the first institution in NE Syria to introduce bilingual paper templates (in Arabic and Kurdish) for all its administrative forms.
