List Of Professions In Arabic (Jobs / Occupations)

As you probably already know, in Arabic, depending on the gender of the person, the word you are using can have a different spelling.

An Arabic job title or occupation changes with the addition of a simple taa’ marbootta (ة) in most cases for the female gender.


There are always some exceptions to this rule though but overall, you will be able to apply this rule in most cases. The taa’ marbootta makes a sound similar to a ‘ah’ sound in English.

Below, you can find a list of the Arabic names for profession, jobs or occupations with transliteration to help you with the pronunciation.
