OmanGBNews publisher launches English language copywriting service for Oman

Polaris Media, publisher of, is launching a new English language copywriting and translation service for Oman and the MENA region.

Polaris managing director Ben Pinnington said the service will offer copywriting and editing across materials requiring professional English language writing. This will include press releases, web copy, brochures, reports, social media and speeches.

“We know from working in Oman, and the Gulf, that writing and editing to a professional standard of English can be a pain if it is not your first language,” he said. “We can solve that problem and ensure all written material is accurate and impressive. This is so vital when the language of international business is English and the last thing any company wants is sub-standard English to give the wrong message or impression. Often the problem is that there is no native English speaker within the company which means managers do not have the resource to write in English professionally. We can again solve that by offering careful guidance listening to what the client wants and then communicating it in clear, plain English. Members of our copywriting team are elite level professional writers and have been trained by the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ). We can receive copy in English or Arabic and then edit it for clients' approval.”

Ben said Polaris will be working with professional Omani translators which will enable Polaris to accept copy in Arabic to translate into English. He said this is designed to make it quicker and easier for Arab clients to submit copy.
