    Does
    It mean?

    Also, is there a website that can do even a mediocre job
    Of translating English to Panjābī or vice
    Versa?

    Thanks!!

    Re: Ji?

    Namrita Ji,
    Ji is acknowledging and welcoming your presence thus in Indian culture is a sign that the person respects you.

    Ji is sometimes used as "yes" and that is acknowledging and welcoming the request or question.

    Re: Ji?

    Ji is used to show gesture of respect in India. This is used in many languages in here.
    You can use it after name or any other salutation.
    example : Sir ji , bhai ji , mummy ji , papa ji , uncle ji :D
