Amar Fayaz Buriro (Consultant)

Amar Fayaz BuriroAmar Fayaz Buriro is a Language Engineer, Linguist & Consultant in Department of Culture, Tourism & Antiquities, Government of Sindh. Previously he has worked as IT Specialist in Sindhi Language Authority where he looked after the Sindhi Computing and development of Sindhi Codex for advance computing in language engineering, this will preserve our historical languages in advanced systems.

Beside this Amar is local-guide of Google Inc. for Sindh Cultural heritage and tourism promotion in geo-tagging, making 360 Virtual Reality Tours and dissemination of information focused on cultural sites.  

Earlier he was Head of Department Information Technology in Newports Institute of Communication & Economics a corporate university of Karachi, IT Consultant in Geo TV network and CEO/Owner of eSpread Multiplication, a firm providing web development services using latest cutting edge web related technology and tools. He has endeavored to bring this latest technology to the service of major Pakistani languages such as Urdu & Sindhi. He realized that these languages of our country faced formidable challenges due to non-compatibility with browsers designed especially for the handheld devices such as tablets and cellphones. One of the major issues so far as Urdu was concerned was the use of the traditionally preferred Nastaleeq style on the web. Finally, he was able to create the first Web based Nastaleeq font “Amar Nastaleeq”, which is a lightweight font that allows robust and reliable conversion to various embeddable formats for use across major OS’s, browsers and devices. Meanwhile, he also worked at localizing the world’s leading CMS Joomla for Urdu and Sindhi. Today he is webmaster of more than 85 multilingual websites which use advanced PHP programming. He also found that majority of the programmers and web developers in our country use nulled versions, cracked software and pirated scripts. This unfortunately is the major cause why most of the websites get hacked and the database management has security issues. Deviating from this practice, he chose to use neat and clean programming and licensed scripts. 

Prior to setting up eSpread, he was associated with National Rural Support Program (NRSP) first as District Manager and later as Project Manager in Education Project assigned by Union Council Based Poverty Reduction Program. The project is considered to be one of the most acclaimed and widely mobilizing model of UCBPRP initiatives of community based girls’ literacy and volunteers’ engagement for the furtherance of female education.

He is compiler of Pakistan’s biggest English to English to Sindhi Dictionary at the time in 1997, which has introduced him as a language expert. His literary work on cultural, social and philosophical is recognized even from BBC Urdu, where he had written more than 150 blogs and articles on socio-political issues. He is liberal and always trying to spreading peace, love and harmony within the all races and nations on this planet.

Being a creative idealist and ideologist, he has always welcomed challenges, built up his reputation as trouble shooter and aimed for excellence.
