Punjabi Translations for Those Who Value Quality

If you think translating Punjabi is easy, you’d be mistaken. Though distantly related to English as an Indo-European language, Punjabi is, in practice, nothing like English. With two genders and five cases, Punjabi is morphologically complex. Masculine nouns are even more complicated, divided into “extended” and “unextended” declension classes. Adjectives follow a similar pattern, with declinable adjectives marked for gender, number, and case, but indeclinable nouns left alone.

Further diverging from English, Punjabi uses postpositions instead of prepositions. Verbs are complex, conjugating for tense, aspect, and mood. Generally, the verb agrees with the subject, but in transitive perfective sentences, it agrees with the direct object, and the subject takes an ergative marker, giving Punjabi a split ergativity system. What makes Punjabi translation particularly challenging is the multiple writing systems it uses—a modified version of the Arabic script in Pakistan and the Gurmukhi script in India. But don’t worry—our Punjabi translators are fluent in both scripts and can work with materials to or from either script. As bona fide experts, our Punjabi translators can effortlessly tackle the challenges of Punjabi translation.

  • Academic papers: Across the Punjab region, academics and researchers conduct groundbreaking studies that, due to the Punjabi–English language barrier, attract little attention from the international scholarly community. Our academic Punjabi translators are here to help translate Punjabi-language journal articles and papers to English, following all the academic writing conventions, to help Punjabi academics move forward with their work. Of course, we’re also available to help international researchers, whether they want to connect with Punjabi-speaking peers or distribute a questionnaire to a Punjabi-speaking population.
