Hi Imen,

I have done some work on sentiment annotation for Arabic using Amazon Mechanical Turk.  I was able to find a reasonable number of workers on AMT who are fluent in Arabic. I ended up assigning the HITs to a qualified group of workers who were really good at the sentiment task.

For your reference here is the link to the paper:

Best, Noura

Dear Imen, We have done some work on using AMT/Crowdflower to summarise Arabic documents [1] and also using experts to build Arabic resources needed for MultiLing 2011/2013 tasks [2],[3]. In the meanwhile we are working on hiring Arabic native speaker experts to build an Arabic lexicon. You should be able to run your tasks on AMT but you need to be careful when it comes to evaluating the quality and consistency of the results. References: [1] Using Mechanical Turk to Create a Corpus of Arabic Summaries:http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/staff/elhaj/docs/LREC2010-MTurk-Final_v2.pdf [2] TAC 2011 MultiLing Pilot Overviewhttp://www.nist.gov/tac/publications/2011/additional.papers/Summarization2011_MultiLing_overview.proceedings.pdf [3] Multi-document multilingual summarization corpus preparation, Part 1: Arabic, English, Greek, Chinese, Romanianhttp://aclweb.org/anthology/W/W13/W13-3101.pdf Best, Mahmoud --Dr Mahmoud El-HajSenior Research AssociateSchool of Computing and CommunicationsLancaster Universityhttp://www.lancaster.ac.uk/staff/elhaj/m.el-haj@lancaster.ac.uk    From: corpora-bounces at uib.no [mailto:corpora-bounces at uib.no] On Behalf Of imen touati Sent: Wednesday, August 05, 2015 9:10 PM To: corpora at uib.no Subject: [Corpora-List] Crowdsourcing for arabic tasks Dear all, Please have any one idea about any group like Amazon Mechanical turk that doing crowdsourcing for tasks in arabic and that employs arabic language expert  (more precisely the task is the annotation of arabic documents in order to do opinion mining and sentiment analysis ). Thank you in advance.  ....................................................
