Punjabi Translation Service

Punjabi or Panjabi is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by inhabitants of the historical Punjab region (in Pakistan and India) and their diasporas. Speakers include adherents of the religions of Islam, Sikhism and Hinduism.

Punjabi is the most common language in Pakistan and 11th most spoken language in India. According to the Ethnologue 2005 estimate, there are 88 million native speakers of the Punjabi language, which makes it approximately the 11th most widely spoken language in the world. According to the 2002 Census of Pakistan, there are approximately 63 million native speakers of Punjabi in Pakistan, and according to the Census of India, there are over 29 million Punjabi speakers in India.

Along with Lahnda and Western Pahari languages, Punjabi is unusual among modern Indo-European languages in being a tonal language.

In his Linguistic Survey of India, the linguist George Abraham Grierson used the word "Punjabi" to refer to several languages spoken in the Punjab region: the term "Western Punjabi" (ISO 639-3 pnb) covered Saraiki, while the term "Eastern Punjabi" referred to the language based on Majhi dialect (ISO 639-3 pan). The term "Punjabi language" today generally refers to "Eastern Punjabi" i.e. the language based on the Majhi dialect of the historical region of Majha, which spans the Lahore, Sheikhupura, Kasur, Gujranwala, Sialkot and Narowal Districts of the Pakistani Province of Punjab and Amritsar District and Gurdaspur District of the Indian State of Punjab.

Punjabi is a significant language for the Sikhs, and Punjabi's population of speakers is one of the greatest of the Indian subcontinent and indeed the world. The majority of Punjabi speakers live in Pakistan, where they form about half of the country's population but the language has no official status in Pakistan and it is not much used as a written language there in comparison to Urdu.

Things to consider when translating between Punjabi and other Languages

Layout designs - Text typically expands or contracts when translating one language to another. English to Punjabi translations and Punjabi to English translations, will contract or expand depending on the subject matter.

Which Punjabi do you need for your translation?

Getting the Punjabi translation of your documents right can be very tricky. Clearly there's only one Punjabi 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 Punjabi translation is aimed at teenagers it will need to use their phrases and maybe even slang. Missing these small issues can be the difference between a successful translation and a bad one.
