Romanization of Arabic

Romanization of Arabic

The romanization of Arabic is the systematic rendering of written and spoken Arabic in the Latin script. Romanized Arabic is used for various purposes, among them transcription of names and titles, cataloging Arabic language works, language education when used instead of or alongside the Arabic script, and representation of the language in scientific publications by linguists. These formal systems, which often make use of diacritics and non-standard Latin characters and are used in academic settings or for the benefit of non-speakers, contrast with informal means of written communication used by speakers such as the Latin-based Arabic chat alphabet.

The procurement process for the stadium conversion began in 2014.[9] The stadium was built as a joint venture by HBK Contracting (HBK) and China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC).[10][11]

Like the other stadiums planned for the 2022 World Cup, the Lusail Stadium will be cooled using solar power and plan to have a zero carbon footprint,[12].[13]

Construction began on 11 April 2017.[14] Completion of the stadium was originally scheduled for 2020. It was then to host three friendly matches until the 2022 World Cup,[15] but as the completion of the stadium was postponed, it will subsequently host 10 games including the final.[16]

Following the World Cup, it is expected to be reconfigured into a 40,000-seat stadium.[17] Excess seating will be removed, and other parts of the building repurposed as a community space with shops, cafés, athletic and education facilities, and a health clinic.[18]

Like other stadiums constructed for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Lusail stadium received a five star rating on 16 August 2022, for its design and construction, from the GSAS.[19]
