Should I choose Yiddish or Hebrew translation services?
While Hebrew and Yiddish both rely on the Hebrew alphabet, the languages are in fact very different. Yiddish is an Indo-European Germanic dialect. Hebrew, an Afro-Asiatic Semitic language.
The thriving Jewish community in Singapore has relatively few Yiddish speakers. However, Hebrew is the main religious language of Judaism and is spoken in synagogues around the world – including in Singapore.
Just like other ethnic groups in Singapore, most Singaporean Jews speak one of the country’s national languages – predominantly English – in public. At home, they may speak any number of languages, including Hebrew, depending on their origins.
If you are trying to reach the Jewish community in Singapore, you may also need:
- Arabic translation services (the majority of Singapore’s original Jewish population were Arabic-speaking)
- Spanish translation services (including of Ladino, also known as Judaeo-Spanish, for Latin American Jews)
If you’re not sure which language would be best for your project, we will always be able to advise you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Hebrew and Arabic similar languages?
Hebrew and Arabic are similar but not the same. They both come from the same language family – Semitic – and have much vocabulary and grammar in common. You’ll find that many Hebrew speakers, in particular, understand and use Arabic words, often as a kind of slang.
One major difference between the two languages is the unique scripts each is written in.
How is Hebrew written?
Hebrew is a right-to-left language, meaning each line begins on the right side of the page.
Strangely though, numbers in Hebrew are written from left to right. As an English speaker, you will be able to spot them easily – they’re the same Arabic numerals used in English.
What about vowels in Hebrew?
Hebrew uses an abjad writing system where vowels are not represented.
Every time a vowel is required, the reader must supply it themselves. This makes it important to know how to pronounce each word in advance.
