Why did Daniel write in Aramaic?

"The words of the Chaldeans and their kings, which were stated in Aramaic, and the words Daniel spoke to them in their tongue as well, he saw fit to record as they were stated. This is because errors and many forms of mistakes fall into translation from one tongue to another."

(Don Isaac Abarbanel, Introduction to Maayanei haYeshuah on Daniel)

Have a great day,
