About Urdu and Pashto Language

Urdu is spoken by more than 70 million people across the world. It is an official language of Pakistan and one of the major languages spoken in India. Additionally, it is also spoken by Urdu-speaking communities in various countries around the world.

Pashto, on the other hand, is spoken by over 51 million people worldwide as their mother tongue. In Afghanistan alone, there are around 52 percent of total Pashto speakers, and it is an official language. It is spoken in the Pashtun region, including Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan in Pakistan, and various provinces in Afghanistan.

Urdu and Pashto are two distinct languages. Urdu belongs to the Indo-Aryan language and is mostly spoken in the Indian subcontinent. Pashto belongs to the Eastern Iranian language group and is spoken in the Pashtun region of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In terms of grammar, Urdu follows a subject-object-verb sentence structure, while Pashto follows a subject-verb-object sentence structure. For example, the sentence “I eat an apple” would be translated as “Main seb Khati hoon” in Urdu, whereas in Pashto, it is translated as “Za seb khaam”. Additionally, these languages also differ in terms of verb placement, pronouns, plural forms and pronoun agreement.

Despite these differences, both languages have the same similarities as well. For instance, both Urdu and Pashto use honorifics to show respect when addressing elders. In Urdu, the honorific "janab" (جناب) is used to address someone respectfully, while in Pashto, the honorific "khaan" (خان) is used. For example, instead of calling someone "Ali" in Urdu, you might use "Janab Ali" to show respect, and in Pashto, instead of "Ahmad," you might use "Ahmad Khan".

In addition to their languages, Pakistani and Afghan cultures also share several similarities. These include showing respect for elders, celebrating festivals and special occasions, wearing traditional clothing such as the shalwar kameez, and food.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Transliteration and Translation?

Transliteration is a process of transferring similar-sounding words from one language to another. To give you an example, typing “Aap se Mil Ke Khushi Huwi“ will be transliterated into “آپ سے مل کر خوشی ہوئی“.

Whereas, translation is a process of converting the written word from one language to another. For E.g. converting text written from Urdu to Pashto.

How does Urdu to Pashto translation works?

Our online translation software uses either Google, Microsoft, or Yandex to translate word, sentence, and phrase from Urdu to Pashto.

Whenever you enter words, sentences, or phrases in Urdu and click on the “Translate” button, our software sends a request to Google, Microsoft, or Yandex for translation.

Their backend system uses some of the cutting edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, Web APIs, Big Data, etc to perform higher quality translations, and send back the response in Pashto.

All this process just takes a split second.

Can I download this translation software?
