Welcome to Trad Online’s latest project, a crowd-sourced book called “The World in Words: 50 professional translators give a unique perspective on their country’s culture”. Besides being a perfect gift for the traveler, language lover, or the curious human being in you – you’ll also be happy to know all profits will go to a charity we’ve supported since 2010, Planète Urgence. 

Wondering what to check out first?

You can go to the Author’s Interviews, take a look at the book, check out interviews with Planète Urgence, or our general blog. If you’re wondering who’s writing: I’m Linda (hey awesome people!) and we are Trad Online!

Finally, you can get the book for yourself or for a friend. It’s a great read on the plane towards your next destination: find out how to make pleasing conversation + how to avoid looking like an ass, read about alluring myths and linguistic mysteries from around the globe.

Our first reviews on Amazon!

First of all, I like the idea. Who can know more about a country than the insiders?
I would like to see a copy of this put into a time capsule so that not a single memory would be lost. There is no other resource that provides this awesome collection of information. I recommend it for teachers, students, mission groups, pastors, tourists, tour guides, and anyone who wants to expand his or her perception of this wonderful world we live in.

Appreciation for the book

[Translators] share many of the same responsibilities as journalists but remain low profile and receive little appreciation or recognition for their work. "THE WORLD IN WORDS" is a celebration of these learned individuals and the world they serve. Good luck!
