English to Bengali Translation
Translating Bengali to English is trickier than with some other languages.
Like in the English language, Bengali doesn’t use grammatical gender; though, the sentence structure differs from English as it utilizes a subject, object, verb structure instead of a subject, verb, object structure.
Bengali words originate from Tatsama, Tadbhaba, Avahațțha, Bideshi, and Desi or Khnati words. Students of the language may recognize some English words that are derived from the above languages.

Software such as Google Translate or Microsoft’s language learning app doesn’t offer the same English translation accuracy as paid apps.
The Bengali (or Bangla) alphabet is based on the Bengali/Assamese script and used in the Bengali language.
Unlike the English dictionary, the Bengali dictionary has more than 150,000 words. The alphabet has 28 letters that are completely different than letters derived from Germanic languages.
English Bengali translators can often charge upwards of $50 an hour. When it comes to the translation of manuscripts, large texts, and medical records, the steep fee is totally worth paying. But what if you need an English translator for personal reasons or to simply help you learn Bengali?
