Check Out Our New, Dedicated Bundeli Translation Services



The distinction between languages and dialects isn’t as clear-cut as most non-linguists tend to think. For example, Czech and Slovak are classified as separate languages, even though they’re so similar that speakers can easily understand the other language without any actual study. On the other hand, you have Arabic, whose “dialects” are so divergent that native speakers from different regions often can’t understand each other. Linguistic classification in India faces similar challenges, with many tongues identified as languages by linguists are counted as Hindi dialects by the Indian government. Such is the case with Bundeli.


Bundeli is estimated to have around 5.5 million native speakers, but since the Indian census conflates some Bundeli speakers with Hindi, the true number is unknown. As with many other languages in the region, it’s often considered a dialect of Hindi, both by the government and sometimes by locals, which makes it difficult for the language to thrive. This means Bundeli speakers receive schooling in Hindi, and official services are often unavailable in Bundeli. Translation services, too, are scarce for the Indian language. That’s why we here at TranslationServices.com have decided to put together our own Bundeli team, proudly translating to and from the unique language.

Bundeli: a proud language with a precarious status

So, where is Bundeli spoken? It’s native to Bundelkhand, a cultural region and proposed state in north-central India, located smack-dab in the nexus of the Hindi-speaking world. Since Bundelkhand has not yet achieved statehood, it’s currently divided between the states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh, with Madhya Pradesh accounting for a larger portion. Homing in on the specific districts, Bundeli is native to the Banda, Hamirpur, Jalaun, Jhansi, Lalitpur, Chitrakoot, Mahoba, Datia, Chhatarpur, Panna, Tikamgarh, Sagar, Damoh, and Niwari districts.


Several languages are spoken in this part of India, but most are closely related to Hindi and are overshadowed by the linguistic giant. Despite often being classified as a dialect of Hindi, Bundeli features numerous dialects itself, namely Standard Bundeli, Northeast Bundeli, Northwest Bundeli, and South Bundeli. It also shares relations to other closely related languages in the area, such as Braj, historically an important literary language. Bundeli, too, boasts a rich tradition of literature dating back to the 12th century, with several poets and writers contributing to the Bundeli-language literary scene throughout the centuries.
