Hello All,

I am doing a small research on how to handle the headlines/headers when translating marketing campaigns into Arabic, especially when some words, titles mus be kept in English (with title case). Could you please let me know what you think about the following please:

In Arabic, some names or titles are kept in English (as opposed to being transcribed). If that is the case, how would these names/titles be written? i.e. would title case be used at all or is the preference in Arabic-speaking countries to capitalise only the first word?
Can you think of any examples that would prove which is the predominant method?

In Arabic, there is a vast use of calligraphy, so is this something that is maybe used to “distinguish” a title from the rest of the text? If so, could you please give some examples?

Thank you for your help
