Signs in Arabic

You can avoid potential embarrassment and frustration if you understand these important signs in Arabic. The Rocket Arabic team wants to ensure you never walk into the wrong restroom, light up in a no-smoking area, or have your vehicle towed from a no-parking spot!

Most of the time you’ll probably only need to recognize the written Arabic word or phrase, but we’ve included audio so you can listen to the Arabic pronunciation. This way you’ll be able to find out if something is open or closed, or more importantly, on sale!
