Welcome to the online Urdu dictionary.

Urdu is an Indo-Aryan / Indo-Iranian language of Indo-European lineage. Its vocabulary developed under Persian & Sanskrit and to a lesser degree Arabic, Hindi, Greek and Turkish influence during the Delhi Sultanate and Mughal Empire in South Asia. Urdu is the national language of Pakistan as well as one of the 23 official languages of India.

Using this dictionary, you can search for meaning of an Urdu word, or part of a word in English or vice versa. If you do not get the expected search results, please try variations of the spelling in English or Urdu. Currently urdu words have to be spelt in Romanized form.

The search results now also include Hindi transliterations of the Urdu word using the Google Language transliteration API. There are plans to include transliteration support in Urdu as well in the future.

All feedback and suggestions are most welcome .
