    Writing Urdu poems along with English translation...would people really like to read them?

    My mother tongue is Urdu and as I like writing poems, I have written a few poems in Urdu as well. I wanted to share them here, on hubpages along with English translation but before sharing I would like to know would people really appreciate such an effort and would like to read them?

    If your poems are good and if you write well in Urdu, there are people who will appreciate your translations even if they speak only English.

    Mike, your answer was motivating. Thank You. smile

    Michael, I can't bet to be perfect at Urdu because you see it takes pretty much  time and effort to have command even at your mother tongue and I am just a teenager trying to improve. Thanks for the answer and encouragement smile

    One more thing I would like to know, would readers go for word to word translation or translation as a whole?

    I love poetry, and Kabir and Ghalib come to mind as classical Urdu poets whose poetry intrigued me in translation into English and French. Go for it!

    Hubs have to be mainly in English, you would have to make sure there is more English than Urdu

    I have read your Urdu poem, I like them very much. However, somewhere I feel something is missing in the translation. Original compositions are great but the translations are okay. Perhaps many people would expect only English hubs, but of course there are people who would like to read original composition. As long as you are providing translations people are going to read your poems. HUbPages is an international community, go ahead with your work.

    Yes, I definitely would. I read one of your poems and I look forward to reading more in the future.
