India

I understand that there are 22 “scheduled” languages of India.  Courtesy of Wikipedia I have them as:

  • Assamese (Asamiya)
  • Bengali
  • Bodo
  • Dogri
  • Gujarati
  • Hindi
  • Kannada
  • Kashmiri
  • Konkani
  • Maithili
  • Malayalam
  • Manipuri (includes Meitei)
  • Marathi
  • Nepali
  • Oriya
  • Punjabi
  • Sanskrit
  • Santali
  • Sindhi
  • Tamil
  • Telugu
  • Urdu

A good, approved translation of the CORE-OM into Gujarati was the first ever translation, many years later a translation into Urdu is nearing completion. A translation into Kannada got as far as the focus group years ago but has completely stalled and the colleagues working on it haven’t replied to Emails for many years now sadly. Offers of help to translate the CORE-OM into Hindi were made some years back but overwork prevented me (CE) from taking that forward.  More uncertain offers have been made to take forward translations into Tamil and Bengali but these have not yet moved on.

If you want information or can offer forward translations into any of the above languages or, even better, can offer to lead a translation, do contact me (CE).
