RIYADH: The King Salman World Academy for the Arabic Language has implemented a draft language policy guide for Saudi government institutions.
This initiative aims to activate language-related decisions within government bodies and raise awareness among workers about the importance of language and its connection to decisions and regulations at different levels.
It also aims to provide procedural steps and an executive working guide that preserves the position of the Arabic language in government institutions, the academy said in a statement.
The project aligns with the strategic goals of the academy, preserving the integrity of Arabic and supporting it verbally and in writing, and developing policies, strategies, plans and programs.
It includes a review of Saudi language policy, based on various regulations and legislations, and also includes an executive guide for language editing in government institutions.
The project is one of the initiatives of the Human Capacity Development Program, one of the programs of Vision 2030, and aims to train more than a thousand employees in 20 ministries and government agencies, through 40 training courses , focusing on two main themes: skills for administrators and basic rules of Arabic writing.
The two themes were chosen on the basis of a study of the specific needs in a functional language situation.
The first training courses for the project have already started, and several have been organized in coordination with the Ministries of Culture, Education and Islamic Affairs. Classes last two days, with an average of eight hours of training.
