Guido Zebisch

Project Director Mr. Guido Zebisch, holding an M.A. from Munich University in hermeneutics and linguistics, has been involved with ARABTERM since September 2011.

Prior to his engagement with GIZ, he has gained thorough experiences in the Arab World with a number of internationally operating German institutions, e.g. the German Academic Exchange Service DAAD, the German Foreign Office and the Goethe-Institut where he served as a consultant and director of the German Cultural Institute in Yemen.

The challenge of ARABTERM, in his view, lies in the fact that it is an interdisciplinary approach bridging technical disciplines with linguistic policies: the GIZ approach, working with the Arab League`s Cultural Organisation ALECSO on this dictionary project, is a promising combination.
