When we come to refer to the transla�on and adapta�on of professional materials to the Arabic language, the challenge is twofold. Both due to a huge lack of translated and culturally adapted materials as well as because the diglossic nature of the language. This ar�cle describes the process of transla�ng two literacy applica�ons: Word Recogni�on and a Phonological Keyboard which were created to promote the literacy of students with disabili�es, in light of the great importance of reading in promo�ng the independence and communica�on of these students. Adap�ng the transla�on to the cultural needs and taking into account the characteris�cs of the language leads to maximum u�liza�on for the purpose for which the applica�ons were created. It is advisable to test the transla�on on a pilot group before releasing the final version.
