Background : COVID-19 outbreak has become a global pandemic as announced by the WHO. It sets the public to regulate social distancing as well as physical distancing. This realization within the public life engender working, teaching and all sorts of other activities to be carried out at home, work from home (WFH), and puts people to stay at home (SAH). Performed only at home, these activities require an online constructed data-based network which is new for some people affected with this regulation. Materials and Method: The teaching of translation being focused in this study is also arranged inevitably at home on an online basis. Using descriptive analytical methods, this study analyzes this online-based teaching of Arabic translation. This study will also disclose the teaching process along with its twists and turns, its technical flaws due to lack of internet quota and its weak signal. Results: This online teaching is arranged to fulfill the satisfactory performance required from both those parties. The material taught includes Arabic texts relating to COVID-19 and its socialization in groups with minimum number of participants not less than five students. This text, translated earlier in local language, is another effort to uphold local wisdom. Later, along with the description of the translation material, the students will be exposed to the combination between Islamic and local values. This online-based teaching is now seen necessary to apply not only in this era of outbreak, but also in settings other than it, as an alternative to traditional way of teaching where face-to-face interaction is compulsory.
