Punjabi - in India as well as in Pakistan 

  

Punjabi is the predominant spoken language in the Punjab province of Pakistan although it has no official status there, and both Urdu and English are preferred languages of the elite. 

  

Chances are that you will meet a Punjabi anywhere in the world

  

Punjabi is also spoken as a minority language in several other countries where Punjabis have emigrated in large numbers, such as Britain, the United States, Australia and especially Canada, where it is the fifth most commonly used language. Punjabi is the preferred language of the Sikhs, in which some of their religious literature is written.    

  

Bhangra music in your local Pub ? 

  

Punjabi is the usual language of Bhangra music, which has recently gained wide popularity both in South Asia and many parts of UK and USA. 

  

Punjabi – As it is spoken 

  

Modern Punjabi vocabulary has been influenced by other languages, including Hindustani, Persian and English. Like other North Indian languages, it is derived from Sanskrit and is therefore Indo-European. 

  

Punjabi acquires a global touch 

  

Much like English, Punjabi has moved around the world and developed local forms by integrating local vocabulary. While most loanwords come from Hindustani, Persian and English, Punjabi emigrants around the world have integrated terms from such languages as Spanish and Dutch. A distinctive "Diaspora Punjabi" is thus emerging.

The written Punjabi 

 

There are several different scripts used for writing the Punjabi language, depending on the region and the dialect spoken, as well as the religion of the speaker. The script used for writing Punjabi in the Punjab province of Pakistan is known as Shahmukhi (from the mouth of the Kings). Sikhs and others in the Indian state of Punjab tend to use the Gurmukhī (from the mouth of the Gurus) script. 

  

Speaking the same language 

Willy Brandt, a former German chancellor, once said: "If I'm selling to you, I speak your language. If I'm buying, dann muessen Sie Deutsch sprechen [then you must speak German]." 

  

There are innumerable occasions in which language barriers can create serious problems. Whether you are attending an immigration hearing or an appointment with a doctor, insurance adjuster, occupational therapist, or lawyer, our interpreters can ensure clear communication between parties. What ever the situations, and whatever your needs are - whether you are an Indian company hoping to break into the English speaking market or you have a product to sell to India,  we have to speak the same language.
