We'll do a search for language at the university's home page. It seems we have a center dedicated to our needs: the Language Resource Center

Language Resource Center
Select the link to their homepage and you will find the center's hours and a list of resources we can explore.What we need is someone who can tell us what language this is and what the words mean. Visiting the center is an excellent option.But we can also browse or search for a specific academic department devoted to Arabic.We find that Arabic is indeed one of the many languages taught at the university, so we decide to contact the instructor. It is important to remember thata big part of the learning process at any university is asking for help. Fortunately, the university is home to a wide variety of professionals, all of whomare outstanding in their fields, completely approachable, and generally very enthusiastic about students willing to go to the trouble of seeking out their expertise. Before you do so,however, you may wish to visit the section of this module entitled Locating a Faculty member with a background in the subject you are researching , paying particular attention to the section on the protocal of contacting experts . We shouldn't expect someone to translate a large portion of text for us--at least not for free--but he or she might be ableto point us to relevant resources. We could also try to cobble together our own translation by using an English-to-Arabic dictionary (there are several online ), but such a translation would be inelegant at best.

Having contacted several faculty members with a working knowledge of the Arabic language, we have determined that the translation of Text 1 shouldread "May God make victory our ally." Although there may be other, equally acceptable, ways of translating this text that a more extensive research projectwould require, this translation is perfectly acceptable for our needs here, so let's move on.

Text 2: "heaven's light our guide/ rule britannia/ evil be to him who evil thinks/ god save the king."

"Heaven's light our guide/ Rule Britannia/ Evil be to him who evil thinks/ God Save the King."
Text 2 reads like verse. Perhaps it is a poem of some kind. Here we can employ one of the great advantages of the Internet and perform a blanket searchfor every word in the text to see what comes up online. Chances are that if this is a poem, entering every word willeliminate smaller quotations and give us the poem in its entirely. You can try this with any search engine; here we will use Google .
We should observe, of course, that you should view Internet resources--like all resources--critically, asking how credible the source is, who is providing the information,and what evidence is given. That said, the Internet can be a useful tool for quickly identifying something.
Google Search
Our search does not produce a match for the exact wording of our text. So let's try a few of the phrases individually, starting with "Rule Britannia."
