About our translator

Punjabi (ਪੰਜਾਬੀ) is the 11th most spoken language in India. It is spoken by over 36 million people worldwide both as first and second language.

For those whose first language is not Punjabi, typing and translating English to Punjabi can be difficult. There are many websites and agencies that provide online and offline translation and interpreting services. Those services can either be expensive or if it is free the quality of translation is often poor and unreliable.

While it makes sense for paying professionals to translate highly specialized subjects and official documents - there is no need to pay for translating commonly spoken words and phrases. For this our online software can be used.

Our translation software gives you high-quality translation results for FREE. This is because it uses a powerful Google translation API to instantly translate sentences between English to Punjabi. You can use our tool to translate up to 500 characters per request. But the good news is you can make unlimited requests.

While the translation result is not always 100% accurate - with a few modifications it can be pretty accurate. We have also integrated a Google Input tool which can be used to easily edit or modify the translated Punjabi text. Besides, this software is evolving and improving every day and shortly we hope it can produce near to perfect translation.

We have also integrated functionality with which you can download or copy the translated text and either share them on social media or use on Word Processing software (such as Microsoft Word) for further formatting.

If you have any other suggestions on how to improve English to Punjabi, please let us know on our Facebook page.

Finally, we would appreciate it if you like and share our page with your friends and family.

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 “Ki tusimmm agrezi bolade ho?“ will be transliterated into “ਕੀ ਤੁਸੀਂਂਂ ਅੰਗ੍ਰੇਜ਼ੀ ਬੋਲਦੇ ਹੋ?“.

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

How does English to Punjabi translation works?

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

Whenever you enter words, sentences, or phrases in English 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 Punjabi.

All this process just takes a split second.

Or, you can also highlight and right-click the section of the text, and click on the “Translate” icon to get the translation result in a language you have chosen from the drop-down menu.

Why is the translation not accurate?

Our Punjabi translation software uses automated machine-language technology provided by Google or Microsoft. As humans are not involved, in some cases it will miss the context and cultural nuances of the language.

With little modification, you can get near to perfect translation. We have also embedded Punjabi transliteration, with a help of which you can easily edit, modify or add Punjabi text.
