Have you installed the Urdu language pack for the OS, as well as (if necessary) .net? It (they) will also have to be installed on the shop's machine(s).

oh then i wil use picture boxes because no shopkeeper will do that tedious work. :(

Here's something that might work. Use a transaltion service, like Google Translate, and get the translation of the text you have in your project. Copy and paste the Urdu translation in place of the English. On my system without any special language packs installed it seems to show up as Urdu script. For instance if the label text is "Items For Sale" the Urdu script shows as "فروخت کے لئے اشیاء"
