LinkedIn Arabic version launches

LinkedIn, the online professional social network, launched its Arabic version on 18-02-2015 Wednesday at an event held at the company’s new regional headquarters in Dubai.

The launch of Arabic, the first bi-directional language on LinkedIn, brings the total number of languages available to 24.

With more than 347 million members worldwide including 14 million in the Middle East and North Africa, we’re the world’s largest professional network where you can exchange information, ideas, and opportunities.

“With the addition of the Arabic version of the site we hope to connect nearly 200 million professionals and students in the region with each other.
