Expert Translation Services for Pashto
If you’re looking for a new market, why not consider Afghanistan and Pakistan? Expanding your business or creative endeavors into this region could help you stand out and secure a piece of the market as these countries increasingly develop their economic sectors. Afghanistan’s GDP is growing year over year, and Pakistan is poised to become one of the “Next Eleven” major global economies in the 21st century. Under these circumstances, it makes perfect sense to establish your business ahead of the crowd.
While both Afghanistan and Pakistan are fairly multilingual countries, with different portions of the population speaking different native languages, Pashto is a major language in both. In Afghanistan, around 50% of the population speaks it (with Dari, a form of Persian, accounting for much of the remaining population), while around 18% of the Pakistani population are native speakers. So, if you’re looking to move into this market, Pashto translation services are imperative. And if you’re looking to move out of this market, this equally applies. Fortunately, ProofreadingServices.com’s Pashto translation team covers both directions.

Don’t Trust Amateurs with Pashto Translation Services
Pashto, as an Indo-European language, may be related to English, but only trained linguists can understand the similarities. In effect, Pashto is dramatically different from English. Spoken by 45 to 60 million people worldwide, Pashto is a grammatically complex language with two genders and four cases. Pashto differentiates between visible and nonvisible third-person pronouns, and nominal inflection depends on the noun class, of which there are several.
Pashto verbs, which come in four different categories, conjugate for three tenses and two aspects. Pashto verb conjugation is informed by a complex system wherein alterations can result in different nuances, complicating translation efforts. The language also exhibits split ergativity—in most cases, the verb agrees with the subject, but when using any past tense to describe a completed action, the verb agrees with the object. Adpositions are also tricky in Pashto—the language is overflowing with prepositions, postpositions, and even circumpositions. Needless to say, translating Pashto is no easy task—but for experts like our Pashto translators, it’s not so hard.
