Back translating

The Arabic language has become a symbol of hate in the eyes and ears of the Western World. The ways in which the language is presented to us, mostly through media and politics, has changed our perception of what is an incredibly beautiful language. And it has changed our perception on everything that is Arabic along with it. By using translation as a tool we can back translate the origin of the arabic word and destroy our perception.
