If you are translating a piece on astronomy from English to Arabic but you are not very familiar with the topic and/or its Arabic terms, it will be a good idea to do some topic reading in Arabic to get some exposure. A web search on the word فلك should yield some useful material. Here is one page to get your feet wet:
