Yeah the problem with languages such as Urdu is a lack of parallel corpora to work with. Translators like google rely on large sets of sentences in both languages to train the system. Which is why "familiar" languages work better, there's just so much more to work with.

When there is a lack of data, one has to start looking into other kinds of systems such as rulebased systems or example based systems.

Hmm, I never realised before that I love my work. But it seems I can't stop talking about it. Thanks for making me realise this Tongue
