Services: Arabic automotive press syndication and media services

Online since 2000, motiontrends offers two distinct and independent lines of business:

1: With its expertise in the automotive fields since the late 80s (details...), motiontrends puts its competence at the service of OEMs or their representatives in the Middle-East, suppliers, exporters, importers... with professional copy writing and translation of English to Arabic or French to Arabic press kits, press releases, specifications and technical illustrations.

2: Our syndication service offers reprint permission to our clients from the Arab media, to publish on their print pages MT contents (text, photos, arabic technical graphics and specifications tables) either before they go online on our site, or on a full exclusivity basis (never published on our site or anywhere else, depending on demand).

All materials are supplied by MT from a password-protected section, or sent directly in compressed folders to the customer's chosen e-mail address.
