MTE Studios: History Travels the World
MTE Studios is a specialized consultancy focusing on themed architecture and interactive learning experience, with offices in Cape Town and Dubai. A truly exceptional agency, MTE Studios brings history to life for a culturally diverse audience, an audience that loves learning through edutainment and rich content.
In 2004, MTE Studios took on the culturally prestigious project of creating a permanent exhibition at Ibn Battuta Mall in Dubai entitled 1000 Years of Knowledge Rediscovered. MTE Studios created exhibits, installations, video games, interactive platforms, detailed posters and more. But this was all created in English. MTE Studios needed a highly qualified and specialized agency to consult and execute content transcreatation into Arabic.
As a Creative Lab with broad cultural knowledge and strong linguistic skills, our team brought the complex and sophisticated facets of this project to life in Arabic, too. We took on the challenge of Arabizing the English content which, in some cases, was itself a translation from the original Arabic. We pored over Arabic encyclopedias, and consulted heritage libraries in Aleppo, Cairo and Damascus, to ensure accuracy, originality and precision.
In supervising all aspects of the Arabic content, our work proved to be a valuable contribution to a giant project that honoured Arab heritage and culture, and the Arabic language.
Our cooperation with MTE Studios went on to include a highly successful international traveling exhibition entitled Sultans of Science, which toured the world from Dubai to Cape Town, and from Singapore to New York. MTE Studios continues to reach out to Tabeer for quality Arabic content that befits MTE’s projects in KSA (Museum Of Science and Technology in Islam (MOSTI) – King Abdullah University of Science and Technology), and Bahrain (Bahrain Science Center).
