First-ever Urdu software launch likely in August


ISLAMABAD: The first-ever Urdu software titled “Harf Kaar” with an advanced programme for detecting and correcting grammatical errors and anomalies in Urdu diction and proof will be launched in the first week of August.

This software is the result of joint efforts by a noted poet and writer, Akhtar Raza Saleemi and eminent software programmer Saeed Raza Khan.

Saleemi said 95 per cent of the software programme has been completed and the rest will be completed within few days. The software will be formally launched by the first week of August in a ceremony.

He said the software has been designed considering the global digital needs of Urdu writers and poets and this programme will auto-correct all the errors in Urdu diction, proof and expression at one click.

He said the software will correct Urdu diction and proof errors as well as pave the way for uniform, error-free and up-to-date Urdu expressions. “We have carried out so far, 500 successful trials of this software,” he added.
