Abu Dhabi has included Hindi as the third official court language, alongside Arabic and English

The move follows a decision taken in November last year, as a part of the bilingual litigation system requiring plaintiffs to translate court documents into English in all civil and commercial cases lodged in Abu Dhabi courts if the defendant does not speak Arabic. 

The decision will, therefore, especially benefit a large chunk of Indian workers as most come from Hindi speaking central and north Indian states.

Yousef Saeed Al Abri, undersecretary of the ADJD said that "This is in addition to facilitating registration procedures to the public through simplified and easy forms and raising litigants' legal awareness via interactive forms of the statements of claims, to ensure access to the legal materials related to the subject of the dispute"
