Why Translate Punjabi?
The Punjab region straddles both Pakistan and India. Agriculture is an integral part of the Punjab, and it has historically been considered among the most fertile areas of the world.
The Punjab Province of Pakistan
Along with being one of the most populous provinces of Pakistan, Punjab produces 68% of Pakistan’s cereals and grains.
The Punjab province is also the most industrialized part of the country. Everything from surgical instruments to heavy machinery is manufactured.
Pakistan’s cinema and fashion centers are also located in Punjab, in the capital city of Lahore. Dubbing and subtitling Punjabi language movies to make them accessible to speakers of Hindi, Bengali, Urdu, and even English opens up a whole new market for these works of cinematic art.
The Punjab State of India
In India, the Punjab state is the second richest in the whole country most well-fed population in all of India. The fertile areas produce 17% of India’s wheat, along with sugar cane, barley, and rice.

About the Punjabi Language
Punjabi is a language in the Indo-Aryan family that is primarily spoken in the Punjab, a region that includes parts of Pakistan and India. Around 130 million people speak Punjabi as their native language, with more speaking it as a second or third language.
Also called “Panjabi”, it is written using two different scripts: one based on the Arabic script, Shahmukhi, and one based on the Indian Landa alphabet, Gurmukhi.
Like many Indo-Aryan languages, Punjabi has roots in Sanskrit, specifically the Shauraseni vernacular of Prakit. Due to various Muslim conquests in the region, there is a lot of Persian and Arabic influence seen in the modern Punjabi language, including one of the writing systems. Punjabi is the most common language in Pakistan and the 11th most common language in India
Punjabi is an interesting language, as it is one of the only Indo-Aryan that is tonal. It has three tones: high falling, low rising, and level. The tones are indicated using diacritics or as indicated by the letters, depending on the writing system used. Punjabi can be found spoken in many countries outside of India and Pakistan, such as Australia, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, the U.S., the U.K., and Canada.
