Translating from Punjabi to English: What your Punjabi translator should know
When translating from Punjabi to English, there are two important factors to consider: grammar and the writing system.
Basic Punjabi grammar follows subject – object – verb order. It uses postpositions, instead of prepositions. There are five noun cases, two genders and two numbers. Adjectives are either declinable or undeclinable, while the two types of pronouns are personal and derivates.
Punjabi uses Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi scripts, where dots and macrons can denote long vowels or consonant sounds. The use of the scripts are regional, with some states or regions using one script over the other.
