قــَــالــَــتْ وِكــَــالــَــة الــطــَّــاقــَــةِ الــدَّوْلــِــيــَــةِ أنَّ أســْــعــَــارِ الــنــَّــفــْــطِ ســَــتــَــســْــتــَــمــِــرُّ فـِـي الــهــُــبــُــوط فـِـي الــعــَــامِ الــمــُــقــْــبــِــل .     

1) The International Energy Agency (IEA) said that oil price will continue to go down next year.

أســْــبــَــابْ إنــْــخــِــفــَــاضْ أســْــعــَــار الــنــَّــفــْــط هــِــىَ ضــَــعــْــفُ الــطــَّــلــَــبِ مــِــنْ نــَــاحــِــيــَـــةٍ ، وَ زِيــَــادَةُ إنــْــتــَــاجِ الــوِلايــَــاتِ الــمــُــتــَّــحــِــدَةِ مــِــنْ نــَــاحــِــيــَــةٍ أخــْــرَى .

2) The reasons of the low oil prices are the weak demand on one hand and the increasing production of the United States on the other hand.

تــَــتــَــحــَــدَّدُ أســْــعــَــارُ الــنــَّــفــْــطِ حــَــســَــب ســِــعــْــر خــَــامْ بــِــرِنــْــت .

3) Oil prices determined according to the price of Brent Crude.

بــَــلــَــغَ ســِــعــْــرُ خــَــامْ بــِــرِنــْــتْ يــَــوْمُ الــجــُــمــْــعــَــةِ 78 دُولاراً وَ 13 ســِــنــْــتــاَ .  

4) The Brent Crude was 78.13 dollars on Friday.

أهــَــمــِــيــَّــة خــَــامْ بــِــرِنــْــتْ هــِــىَ أنــَّـــهُ يــُــعــْــتــَــبــَــرْ أحــَــد الــمــَــعــَــايــِــيــر الــعــَــالــَــمــِــيــَّــةِ الــتــِّــي تــُــحــَــدِّدْ ســِــعــْــر الــنــَّــفــْــطِ .  

5) The importance of Brent Crude is that it is considered one of the international criteria that determines oil prices.

تــَــأَســَّــســَــتْ وَكــَــالــَــةُ الــطــَّــاقــَــةِ الــدَّوْلــِــيــَّــةِ عــَــقــِــبَ الأزْمــَــةِ الــنــَّــفــْــطــِــيــَّــةِ الــتــِّــي وَاجــَــهــَــهــَــا الــغــَــرْبُ فـِـي ســَــبــْــعــِــيــنــَــاتِ الــقــَــرْنِ الــمــَــاضــِــي .  

6) The International Energy Agency (IEA) was founded immediately after the oil crisis that faced the west in the 1970s of the past century.

تــَــأَســَــســَــتْ وَكــَــالــَــةُ الــطــَّــاقــَــةِ الــدَّوْلــِــيــَّــةِ لــِــغــَــرَضِ إســْـــدَاءِ الــمــَــشــُــورَةِ لــِـلــدُّوَلِ الــمــُــســْــتــَــوْرِدَةِ لــِـلــنــَّــفــْــطِ

7) The International Energy Agency was founded for the sake of giving advice to oil-importing countries.

الــمــَــقــْــصــُــودْ بــِـ أُوبــِــكْ هــِــىَ مــُــنــَــظــَّــمــَــة الــدُّوَل الــمــُــصــَــدِّرَةِ لــِــلــبــِــتــْــرُول .   

8) OPEC is the organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries.

تــَــزْدَادُ الــضــُّــغــُــوطُ عــَــلــى أُوبــِــكْ لــِـلــحــَـــدِّ مــِــنْ صــَــادِرَاتــِــهــَــا مــِــنْ أجــْــلِ رَفــْــعِ الأســْــعــَــارِ .  

9) Pressures are increased on OPEC to lessen its exports for the sake of raising prices.

الــدَّوْلــَــةُ الأكــْــبــَــر تــَــصــْــدِيــراً لــِــلــنــَّــفــْــطِ هــِــىَ الــســُّــعــُــودِيــَّــة .

10) The biggest country exporting oil is Saudi Arabia (Al-Saudia).

تــَــرْجــَــمــَــة الـجــُــمـْــلــَــة إلـى اللـغــة الإنـجــلـيــزيـة :

11) Translation of the sentence into English:

وَ مــِــنَ الــمــُــقــَــرَّرِ أنْ يــَــجــْــتــَــمــِــعَ وُزَرَاءُ نــَــفــْــطِ أُوبــِــكْ فــِـي الــســَّــابــِــعِ وَ الــعــِــشــْــرِيــنِ مــِــنْ هــَـــذا الــشــَّــهــْــرِ لــِــبــَــحــْــثِ مــَــوْضــُــوعِ الــعــَــرْضِ وَ الــطــَّــلــَــبِ فــِـي ســُــوقِ الــنــَّــفــْــطِ الــعــَــالــَــمــِــيــَّــةِ”

“It is decided for the Ministers of OPEC to meet on the 27th of this month to discuss the topic of supply and demand in the international oil market.”

    I find this writing style very difficult to follow.
    I would suggest a bigger font, and no prolonging of the letters.:)

    • Fisal:

      @shaks Ahlan Shaks, The prolonged writing of letters is just for easiness of reading and clarity; it shows the Harakat on the letters better so as not to be mixed with the letters and dots 🙂
