Help for Urdu

Reading Urdu in your computer:

Are you facing problems with reading Urdu text in your computer? One common problem can be that appropriate fonts are not installed in your computer and instead of Urdu words/ characters, you see strange characters. If you only need to read (and not write) Urdu in your computer, you may download Urdu fonts from locations given below:

1. Urdu Web: Download Fonts here. This will be a zipped (compressed) file. You can unzip it and run the installer file. Hopefully this will solve the problem. You can also find some other fonts on the same website by going one step higher. You can get some fonts from CRULP’s website too.

2. Alternatively, BBC Urdu Font can be downloaded here. Run the executable (exe) file which will install font on your computer automatically.

Finally, you may search for Urdu fonts on Google and install them in your computer, but you may have to copy some font files in that case, on your computer’s fonts folder. Tricky?

Writing Urdu in your computer:

Now coming to writing Urdu in your computer. Well this can be a bit complicated as compared to installing fonts used to be complicated but not anymore. Simply go to Bilal’s website and install Urdu support to your computer. A single executable file will install required fonts and keyboard on your computer. Dont forget to say a word of thanks to Bilal.

You may also find help here. Since it is an interactive forum, you can ask any questions if you need to.

I hope after passing through all this, you will be able to read and write Urdu in your computer. If you still have problems, you can write to me individually, with a detail of your problem.

Enjoy Urdu,
