Thank for your email Waqas. As I requested before please refer to older 
email thread which was copied on ubuntu-l10n-urd at lists.ubuntu.com. The 
CDAC people are also on that email list and have requested us for help 
in certain areas of openoffice.

The whole purpose of these threads have been to avoid duplication of 
efforts and to make available a single platform for the localization 
efforts. Dr Sarmad is also leading efforts to localize other softwares 
like firefox and thunderbird.
