Thank you for the translation. Had the script been in Hindi I could have probably worked it out.

Well, it is not really a translation, but a transcription. Just replacing the Arabic characters with the corresponding Latin ones. But as the result is not a bunch of Urdu words, I guess we all understand what it means.

And yes, in Devanagri they do the same: writing phonetically how the English pronounce their alphabetic characters.
