Enter your Urdu text and this converter will convert it to Unicode. Unicode is primarily used online as a way of making sure that the characters display correctly (ie non-Roman words, accents etc).

Modern Standard Urdu is a language which combines Sanskrit and Persian words with Arabic, Portuguese, Turkish and many other languages that were brought to south Asia. It has a right-to-left alphabet that uses 58 letters, 39 basic letters and no distinct letter cases. It is typically written in calligraphic script called Nastaʿlīq script.
Because the uniqueness of Urdu and its script form, it can be difficult to use online, as not every computer system or platform will have Urdu script. Unicode is a standardized encoding system which assigns a unique number to each character. It has become the standard character encoding for the internet. When text is encoded in Unicode, it can be read and displayed on any computer or device that supports Unicode. This makes it an ideal way to exchange information between different systems.
Another benefit of using Unicode is that it allows you to create documents that are more easily translated into other languages. For example, if you create a document in Urdu using Unicode, it will be much easier for a translator to translate the document into English than if the document was not written in Unicode.
