Update Arabic Dictionary Project 2014
In August 2014 the Oxford Arabic-English dictionary (OAD) appeared (bound together in one volume with a new English-Arabic dictionary).
Tressy Arts, who worked on the Dutch project became the editor in chief of the OAD. When the OAD was launched she gave an interview to a radio station in Abu Dhabi. You can hear this interview through this link.
