With the Nepali-to-English translation project, Nepali Language Resource Center (NLRC) aims to provide translations of top Nepali words to English. We hope that the project benefits not only Nepali speaking population but also a growing number of English speaking population wishing to learn Nepali. Users will be able to translate Nepali words to English and vice versa. The translation will also include a relevant example.

Since translation of each and every word is almost impossible, NLRC has developed an algorithm to identify words and phrases that are most frequently used in Nepali. The most frequently used words are then be translated. The algorithm tracks common Nepali words and phrases over time and the list is updated on a regular basis.

Unlike some available Nepali English translations that are translated using an automated approach, the translations offered here are manually translated by a group of editors with knowledge of both the English and Nepali languages.

This section lists the most frequently used words in the Nepali language (in descending order of frequency) and presents their English translation along with its parts of speech and an example.
