Vegan and Vegetarian Language Guides:
Vegan Passport – Passport sized book with phrases for explaining your vegan diet in 56 languages (honestly, while the description of veganism is very thorough and I can certainly see how this would be useful in some situations…It tends to come across as arrogant when translated so literally into certain languages). I’d be interested to see how a person would react if they were handed this book.
Select Wisely – Printed cards explaining what you can’t eat. Great for people with food allergies, but would need to be customized for vegans. I think I’ll make some myself.)
HedWeb – Vegetarian phrases in other languages
IVU – Vegetarian phrases in other languages
*Tip – For sites in other languages, Babel Fish or Google Translate are great tools that allow you to translate a block of text or an entire Web page. (Sometimes the translations return some gibberish, but it’s better than nothing).
