Urdu translations - the lesser known world language by the translation agency Fasttranslator

Urdu is possibly the most widely spoken language of which you have never heard. That makes sense, as the area where the language is spoken is far away - Urdu is the national language of Pakistan, and is also widely used in some states in India. A collective amount of almost two hundred million people speak this language, a number that definitely competes with the number of German speakers.

When examined in more detail, Urdu takes on even more importance: 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 pairing, or relationship, is known by the name of Hindustani and boasts over 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 dualism of Serbian and Croatian. Our mother-tongue translators are familiar with the language along with its unique characteristics and will translate your texts adequately and precisely. Also, special subject areas are not a problem for us. See for yourself and contact our experienced project managers by phone or by email. We will happily provide you with an obligation-free quote.

Language of an up-and-coming region

Experts are in agreement that India will be joining the big leagues of economic powers in a few years. This does not currently apply to Pakistan; however, it is believed that globalization could also benefit this country as it did India. Microsoft already supports Urdu in all new versions of Windows, to account for the increased number of computer users. The Indian subcontinent region is an interesting area for investment.

Lost in translation? Not with us!

No translator transfers the source text word-for-word into the target language. This prohibits expression and grammar. Instead, a translation can be seen as more of a "rewrite" of a text with the same meaning. 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 then not only have a razor-sharp grasp on the meaning of the source text, but also a lot of patience and creativity to always achieve the maximum level of accuracy. Regardless of which documents you would like translated into the language of the Indian poet laureates or vice versa: we are happy to help you further with expert advice.
