But the same site recommends a localisation tool:

Urdu and Trados Aug 19, 2002

Greetings.


Based on recent comments by a friend in Pakistan who works in Urdu, save your money and don\'t buy Trados, as that doesn\'t support Urdu properly.


Also, Urdu and Pashto have some distinctive characters not found in Dari or Farsi, and for working with Urdu, Trados reportedly searches for the closest-approximate equivalent and, as a result, mangles the displayed text.


HTH. Good luck.


Regards.

Translation software for Urdu/Pashto Aug 7, 2013

I am downloading the Trados trial version right now but I don't expect any great support for Pashto. What CAT tool is best?
