I’m really pleased to add Chinese SpeakSheets to our growing selection of travel language sheets today. It’s almost as exciting as actually going to China. And I couldn’t have done it without new contributor Fred Bane.
It is so important for our sheets to be translated by fluent or native speakers, where the translator understands the subtlety, nuance and fun in the language. So you can say things like Cheers!
and not just “What color is the hat, please?
What I hear from our contributors is that travel guidebooks, Google Translate and the rest often use words that are never actually used in real conversations, or far too formal, or just flat-out incorrect and imprecise.
We want to create travel language sheets that are imminently useful, helpful and easy-to-use time and again. If that trip to Barcelona suddenly includes a side trip to Avignon, you can download the French sheet, open it on your smartphone or tablet and know that the language is vetted and all the words and phrases are in the same place on the sheet as every other SpeakSheet for easy reference.
We’ll soon be adding a Contributor section to this website, so you can learn more about our bilingual translators. If you sign up today
, you’ll always have access to every language sheet on the site, now and forever, with no monthly fees ever. Join us and be a part of the global village that we call home.
