Punjabi is mainly spoken in the Punjab region which is Pakistan and India, with around 113 million native speakers of the language, it is globally important, it is also the 3rd most frequently spoken language in England.


Punjabi is slightly complex to translate into written documents as written Punjabi varies depending on what region or religion the speaker/reader is from.

There is a modern written standard for Punjabi in both India and Pakistan which is known as Majhi.

Yet in India, Punjabi is most often written with a Gurmukhi alphabet which is most often associated with Sikhs. Whereas in Pakistan, they write in a modified version of the Urdu alphabet called Shahmukhi, which is often associated with Punjabi Muslims.

To make matters more confusing Shahmukhi is written from right to left, while Gurmukhi is written from left to right.

These regional variations highlight the importance of hiring a translator who while being an expert linguist is also a native speaker and fully aware of the impact culture can have on the translation of a document.


Punjabi is a richly expressive language, and those who wish to preserve its cultural tradition need to transcribe their interviews, stories, and conversations with Punjabi speakers.

That’s where Absolute Translations comes in! We can help you preserve your recordings and keep your stories alive with Punjabi audio transcripts.

Our transcriptionists are not only experienced translators: they also speak the language of your source material (in this case, Punjabi) as a mother tongue and are extensively trained in voice-to-text processes. This means that your transcriptions don’t just sound like someone speaking in English; they capture the spirit of the original speaker.


We know that when you are looking to transcribe Punjabi, cost is often a deciding factor for which transcription agency you choose to work with.

We offer a range of transcription packages to suit the needs of your project our flexible, four-quote system lets you pick the linguistic service that’s right for your budget and schedule.

The most frequent complaint people have about language software, like Google Translate, is that it cannot translate with 100% accuracy and often cannot translate some words at all.

Translator software is incredibly difficult to make as no two languages have the same grammar or translate exactly in meaning. Translation software, even the paid versions, are at best rudimentary.

Instead, it is far faster and more reliable to get a real human being with the language skills to accurately translate for you.
