Urdu translations – A Lesser-Known World Language
Urdu is possibly the most widely spoken language you’ve never heard of. It’s the national language of Pakistan and is also widely used in some states in India. A collective number of almost 200 million people speak this language.
Hindi, the most important language in India next to English, is so close to Urdu that speakers of both languages can understand each other without a problem. This language relationship is known by the name of Hindustani and boasts more than 900 million speakers.
Urdu is regarded as the more elegant and poetic variant within Hindustani and is associated with poetry and song at the Court. The main difference between Hindi and Urdu is their different alphabets, slightly reminiscent of the similarity between Serbian and Croatian.
Urdu is an up-and-coming language. To take care of the increased number of Urdu-speaking computer users, for example, Microsoft already supports the language in all new versions of Windows.
Lost in translation? Not with us!
Professional translators never transfer the source text into the target language word-for-word. Doing that would create a stilted translation that doesn’t take into account differences in grammar. Instead, an excellent and accurate translation is actually more of a "rewrite."
This is even more the case if a text is translated between two languages that have no similarity in structure or vocabulary. The translator must not only have a razor-sharp grasp of the meaning of the source text, but also the creativity to achieve the maximum level of clarity.
Whether you need a business document translated into Urdu or a birth certificate from Pakistan translated into English for the USCIS, we have the perfect translator for you among our extensive database.
