What's New

Now you can translate Roman Urdu to English and vice versa.

App Description

Expand your understanding with Urdu Translator.

Urdu Translator has been in the App Store Top 10 of Pakistan for more than a year!


This application is a useful tool for anyone fluent, semi-fluent or just learning Urdu. Its appeal spans all ages, from children in primary school to college students to working adults.

Urdu Translator was created in MEDL Mobile’s App Incubator. The idea was submitted by Aftab Amjad, a student of Accounting in Melbourne, Australia.


Introducing the first English to Urdu Dictionary for the iPhone—a comprehensive database with more than 24,000 words and phrases.


Urdu Translator is easy and intuitive, with simple functionality yet powerful potential.

Scroll through the alphabetized list of entries to browse for words or phrases you want translated. If you need a specific word, the search bar at the top will pinpoint exactly what you need.

You can add as many expressions to your favorites as you want for quick, convenient reference.


After searching extensively for an Urdu Dictionary app, Aftab found the results disappointing. From there, he decided to explore the possibility of developing his own. With the help of MEDL Mobile, that possibility became real.

As with all languages, Urdu is always changing and growing, so if you have any comments or suggestions, please send them to [email protected]

“It’s great for the Urdu community and it will especially help students.” –Aftab
