  • What is it?
    It is program to easily type Urdu text without going through the trouble of installing Urdu Keyboard, learning the keyboard layout and THEN type it in.

    Now with "Mollana" you can simply download, install and get started...

  • Who is this program for?
    Anyone who loves Urdu language and wants to be able to type Urdu with minimum fuss.

  • How does it work?
    It takes Roman/English text as input (Roman Transliteration, technical jargon) and uses predefined rules to produce Urdu Unicode text.

  • Will it translate my spellings of words as well?
    No. It uses fixed representation of Urdu alphabets in roman characters, which are quite convenient to remember and use with little practice. So you have to let go of your own spelling to work with Mollana and I'm sure you will not regret it.
