Of course! I translated panels for other modules into a language in which I am fluent and still had immense difficulty because I never took an EE course in that language… but at least in that case I was able to scour online open-access EE academic journals to get relatively confident on how to say things like "low frequency oscillator" or "envelope" (not like something you put in a mailbox!). But even so, terms for those panels like "DC coupled" and "sample and hold" left me throwing up my arms.cretaceousear wrote: ↑Wed Sep 30, 2020 5:35 pmLovely idea the panel in Urdu - but never trust a dictionary. Usage is what counts.
I worked in SE Asia and we were doing lubricating oil packaging for a middle eastern country. The director over-ruled my choice of a UK translation service and saved money by going local. When the client saw it they fell about laughing because it was written in archaic formal Arabic - not great on an oil can. Then again if it doesn't exist you're inventing the terms that will be used henceforth, unto all the ages - a great responsibility!
I had one friend who is an America-born native Urdu speaker but was never in Urdu medium school have a look at the list above and just say "no chance."
That all said, something like Wikipedia is a useful source. You go to the English version of the page (say, for "Probability Distribution" instead of Marbles's "Spread") and see if there's an Urdu version. Then click through and look around and see if it's describing what you have in mind. Then cross-reference by googling the terms in question and consulting dictionaries. Unfortunately, Urdu Wikipedia is pretty thin (especially in comparison to, say, Persian or Hindi) and I have not been able to find a technical Urdu-English dictionary; the two book-version ones I own are for beginners like me, and the third, Platts's Dictionary of Urdu, Classical Hindi, and English is 140 years old and lacks a lot of technical vocabulary—and is risky anyway because it's so old and so comprehensive.
Anyway, even if there are no Urdu-fluent Wigglers, I might be able to trade modding another acquaintance's Volca for a thorough look at the list!
