Doing paath in English translations

I am interested in reading the Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, and I have found an online version which translates the text to English.

However I do not understand or cannot read any Gurmukhi language, and cannot always understand what is being said when I go to the temple so I literally just read the English text as a part of my prayers.

Does this mean my prayers are not as meaningful, as I am not reading it in the original format.

Thanks.

The purpose of Paath is to connect to the Guru. When you do paath you open yourself so that the Gurbani can penetrate your heart. It is fine to do paath in English... or Spanish, or Russian, or Greek.... what matters is your own reverence and surrender to the Guru.
