Pashto Information

The Pashto language is spoken by over 50 million people, primarily in Afghanistan, where with Dari it is one of the two official languages. It is also spoken in bordering Pakistan, mainly in the Northwest, where it is a provincial language without official status. The official languages of Pakistan are Urdu and English. However, 15% of Pakistan’s 170 million people speak Pashto, the second-largest language.

Language Facts

Even though all Afghan kings since the early 18th century were of Pashtun origin, the Persian language (today Dari) was the language of the Royal court and government institutions while Pashto was mainly spoken by the Pashtun tribes. In the 1930s there were efforts to establish Pashto as a language of government, administration and art; in 1936 Pashto was formally granted its status of official language.

It is interesting to mention that there are 19 Pashto dialects. If you have a project for translation or recording in Pashto, please let us know which area you are targeting.

Writing

The Pashto alphabet is a modified form of the Arabic alphabet and has extra letters for Pashto-specific sounds. Since the 17th century, Pashto has been primarily written in the Naskh script, rather than the Nasta'liq script, which is used for the neighboring Persian and Urdu alphabet.

The Pashto alphabet consists of 44 letters and 4 diacritic marks.
