|balance sheet and budget |
الميزانية العمومية والميزانية التقديرية
These Arabic terms are from Abu Ghazaleh's Accountancy and Business Dictionary. Please note the following:
1. To find out the definition of each expression in English, apart from its translation, it is best to rely on easily available resources on the web. All the major monolingual dictionaries have been made freely accessible. In the rare occasions when dictionaries fail to be of help, you can post your quesiton as English to English, not English to Arabic.
2. If you know the English definitions of the terms, it is a good idea to include the definitions in your questions. That way, you help set the parameters of the discussion that would follow once you have posted the question.
3. The above Arabic terms are useful whenever the two expressions occur together in a sentence, but when they occur separately, most people use ميزانية (without the modifier) for "budget." The expression الميزانية التقديرية may sound fussy or even confusing, especially to the average reader. I have only seen it as a dictionary entry, never in a text.
