A Hindi-to-Punjabi translation software developed by a faculty member from the Punjabi University was hosted by the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom and the Technology Development for Indian Languages (TDIL) of the Indian government.

The software was recently developed by Ajit Singh, an assistant professor at the MM Modi College, with help from the university's Computer Science department.

Vishal Goyal, assistant professor at the department of Computer Science at the Punjabi University, said, "The software has been made available online on the servers of the Edinburgh University and the TDIL." He added the software was about 95% accurate.

Punjabi University vice-chancellor Jaspal Singh congratulated the department and applauded faculty's efforts in bringing international recognition to the institution.
