    Some dictionaries don't provide all the translations of 'feedback' in Arabic. تغذية استرجاعية is not the correct word in that context.

    From dictionary.com:
    The return of information about the result of a process or activity; an evaluative response: asked the students for feedback on the new curriculum.
    I can't find an appropriate word in Arabic which correspond it. Alternatively, we might say: نقد، تحليل، افادة، بيان، تقييم or رد.

    Though non of the above gives an accurate translation of 'feedback'.

    Thank you zooz, I appreciate your answer.

    As I said in my removed message, the Arabic translation is so new to my ears that I am curious how Josh got to learn it. I wanted to know if he got it from some Arabic book or a native context or so.

    Thanks again.

    First, I'd like to thank Zooz for a very good post:thumbsup: The word "feedback" has always been problematic to me, and I appreciate the translations you suggested.

    The Arabic تغذية استرجاعية is not as often used as the English "feedback". And تغذية استرجاعية is not the only form of this expression, the one I've seen more often is تغذية راجعة and I hate them both :D really, because no Arabic native who hasn't got enough knowledge in scientific field would know very much what this Arabic expression mean.

    So, to answer Josh, the Arabic expression is mainly used in scientific context (but I can't remember a precise example, maybe a quick google search would provide some).

    I was about to comment on your use of this word myself yesterday, but then I thought it wasn't that big deal. But thanks Arabelle for bringing this up :) Thus we got to discuss one of those words that present a problem in translation. So I think the best with this word is to translate it, according to context, with words like those suggested by Zooz.
