First English to Urdu Dictionary/Translator for the iPhone

In these present times, the whole world including Pakistan is inclining towards the English language. Our national language Urdu is loosing its identity. But even in these times there are people who are striving hard to bring back the glory of Urdu. Aftab Amjad is one of these people. Aftab is a student of Accounting and resides in Melbourne, Australia. He looked for an Urdu Dictionary app for iPhone and the results were quite disappointing for him.

From there he thought of making his own Urdu Dictionary app. With the help of MEDL Mobile, Aftab developed the first English to Urdu Dictionary for the iPhone – a comprehensive database of over 24,000 words and phrases. His vision is to promote greater communication and learning among Urdu fluent people around the world. “It’s great for the Urdu community and it will especially help students”, said Aftab.

It can translate English to Urdu and also English to roman Urdu. It is quite simple yet powerful application which can come very handy in today’s world. It has got two amazing features. One feature is to Translate which lets you scroll through the alphabetized list of entries to browse and select the words or phrases you want translated. If you need a specific word, the search bar at the top will pinpoint exactly what you need. And second feature lets you favorite as many entries as you want, for more convenient reference.

This application is compatible with the iPhone and the iPod touch, requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
