We’re Introducing Our New Mirpuri Translation Services



Pakistan, like most of its neighbors, is a country of many languages. With an estimated count of 75 to 85, Pakistan hardly stands up to India’s 450-odd languages, but it’s indisputable that the South Asian country is highly multilingual, with different languages dominant in different parts of the country. Punjabi is the biggest native language in Pakistan, followed by Pashto and Sindhi, but in certain areas, other languages come out on top: such as Mirpuri.


As with some other languages in this multilingual part of the world, the identity and background of Mirpuri can be difficult to pin down. The language may also be referred to as Pahari, Pothwari, or Mirpur Pahari, but “Pahari” and “Pothwari” may also refer to a handful of other, closely related languages, so the names “Mirpuri” or “Mirpur Pahari” can help avoid confusion. Although Mirpuri is estimated to be spoken by at least 500,000 people as a native language, few translation companies dedicate services to it—so we at TranslationServices.com have decided to launch our own Mirpuri translation team.

Mirpuri: uncovering the identity of an elusive South Asian language

Mirpuri speakers live primarily in Mirpur District, a district of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, a region administered by Pakistan in the disputed Kashmir region. Mirpuri is generally considered one of three primary dialects of the Pahari-Pothwari language, the other two key dialects being, naturally, Pahari and Pothwari. Mirpuri is mutually intelligible with the other major varieties of the language cluster, but it’s classified as the southernmost dialect, and it’s distinct enough from the northernmost dialect in Muzaffarabad that speakers can have difficulty understanding each other.


Believe it or not, Mirpuri is related to English—they’re both members of the Indo–European language family. However, while English occupies the European side of the grouping, Mirpuri and its fellow Pahari-Pothwari cousins reside on the Indo side. Mirpuri, Pahari, and Pothwari are sometimes considered dialects of a “Greater Punjabi” macrolanguage, a group that would additionally encompass Saraiki and Hindko, also major languages in Pakistan. This means that Mirpuri is closely related to Punjabi and shares much of its grammar and vocabulary, but it still differs in notable ways, including in pronouns, case markers, and the future tense. Mirpuri is also worlds apart from English, and you need to rely on a trained Mirpuri translator for high-quality results—a Punjabi translator won’t do.
