  • General discussion

  • We the Saraiki people of Pakistan, India and others want that Microsoft should add Saraiki language in Windows XP and Office

    Saraiki is an ancient language and it possesses an extensive literary heritage.Saraiki key board can provide support urdu, punjabi and kasmiri languages but urdu can not support same thing in punjabi also
    not support same thing in kashmiri.
    Three university have Saraiki Department.

    1- Department of Saraiki in Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, Pakistan.


    2- Department of Saraiki islamia University of Bahalwalpur pakistan.


    3- Department of Saraiki Gomal university D.I Khan pakistan.

    Saraiki keyboard and font are available.when Windows and Office will support this language?

    Saraiki is also impartant language in india. Many Saraiki live in Saudi Arabia and other countries.

    Saraiki has 42 letters where urdu has 37 letters. so urdu , pakistan punjabi and kashmiri may also be easly written by saraiki key board. Many universties have  their own Saraiki departments.  There are more then three TV chennel of Saraiki. some daily newspapers in Saraiki are published. Office and windows  must support Saraiki

    This isn't Microsoft you're addressing; This is a peer support forum.
    We are all just users of this version of Windows here, helping each
    other if and when we can. We are not Microsoft employees (not even
    those of us with "Microsoft MVP" behind our names; that's an honorary
    title for having provided consistently helpful advice) except for an
    occasional employee.

    If you want to ask Microsoft for something, please contact them
    directly. Trying to do it here is just a waste of (figurative) breath.
