Nepalese Translation Service

Nepali is a language in the Indo-Aryan branch of the Indo-European language family.

It is the lingua-franca of Nepal and is also spoken in Bhutan, parts of India and parts of Myanmar (Burma). It is one of 23 official languages of India incorporated in 8th annex of the Indian Constitution. It has official language status in the formerly independent state of Sikkim and in West Bengal's Darjeeling district. Similarly, it is widely spoken in the state of Uttaranchal, as well as in the state of Assam.

Nepali is the easternmost of the Pahari languages, a group of related languages spoken across the lower elevations of the Himalaya range, from eastern Nepal through the Indian states of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. The influence of the Nepali language can also be seen in Bhutan and some parts of Burma. Nepali developed in proximity to a number of Tibeto-Burman languages, most notably Nepal Bhasa, and shows Tibeto-Burman influences.

Nepali is closely related to Hindi but is more conservative, borrowing fewer words from Persian and English and using more Sanskritic derivations. Today, Nepali is commonly written in the Devanagari script. There is some record of using Takri script in the history of Nepali, especially in western Nepal, Utarakhand, and Himanchal. Bhujimol is an older script native to Nepal. Nepali is mutually intelligible with Hindi and Urdu speakers.

Nepali developed a great literature within a short period of hundred years in the nineteenth century, fueled by Adhyatma Ramayana; Sundarananda Bara (1833); Birsikka, an anonymous collection of folk-tales; and a Ramayana by Bhanubhakta. The contribution of trio-lauretes Poudyal, Devkota, and Sama took Nepali to the level of other world languages. The contribution of laureates outside Nepal, especially from Darjeeling and Varanasi, is also worth noting.

Nepali goes by various names. It was also called Gorkhali or Gurkhali (i.e., the language from Gorkha, which later gave its name to the famous Gurkhas). Other names for the language include Parbatiya ("mountain language", identified with the Parbatiya people of Nepal) and Lhotshammikha (the "southern language" of the Lhotshampa people of Bhutan).

Historically, the language was first called Khaskura (literally, "speech of the Khas," a people who were peasants in the Karnali-Bheri basin of far western Nepal since prehistoric times). Khaskura exists in opposition to Khamkura, a group of Tibeto-Burman dialects spoken by Kham peoples in the highlands separating the [Karnali-Bheri basin from the Gandaki basin in central Nepal.

The form Nepali first came into use when Nepal changed its name from Gorkha in 1930. Like Sanskrit and Hindi, Nepali is written in the Devanagari script.

The sole use of Nepali in the courts and government of Nepal is being challenged. The issue of recognition of other ethnic languages in Nepal was one of the talking points raised by the Maoist insurgency. A Cabinet Minister, Matrika Yadav, recently took a ministerial oath in the Maithili language, rather than Nepali.

Scholars Kamal Malla and Tej. Kansakar comment of the Sanskrit derivation of Nepali:

Which Nepalese do you need for your translation?

Getting the Nepalese translation of your documents right can be very tricky. Clearly there's only one Nepalese language but as in most countries different sections of the population will have different ways of saying things. Your Account Manager will discuss the target market of your document with you. Clearly if your Nepalese translation is aimed at teenagers it will need to use their phrases and maybe even slang.
