Abu Dhabi Introduces Hindi as Third Official Court Language
Apart from Arabic and English, Abu Dhabi has included Hindi as the third official language in its courts and this decision was taken as a part to improve the access to justice.
This was introduced for Hindi speakers to learn and understand litigation procedures and their rights and duties. People can also learn to facilitate registration procedures via unified forms.
Yousef Saeed Al Abri, undersecretary of the ADJD said that the adoption of multilingual interactive forms for claim sheets, grievances and requests, is to promote judicial services and to enhance the transparency of litigation procedures.
Introducing the new language comes as a part of the bilingual litigation system. The foreign investor receives the case files that are translated so that global judicial service meets the requirements of residents in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
