An Indian Year: Now in Fre-Ger-Spa-Hin-glish!

Thanks to the powers of Google Translate, you can now read my blog in five languages!

This may be – and probably is – a superfluous addition to the upper right-hand corner of the home page, but the fact is I have friends with at least seven different mother-tongues. (Sadly, Google doesn’t translate into Bengali or Marathi.) That’s one of the great things about Rotary Youth Exchange: You meet people who speak a lot of different languages.

I’ve gathered from my limited knowledge of Hindi that some things are lost in translation, and I’m curious about how well my writing translates to other languages. Your feedback is appreciated!

    CHRIS!!!! you’re blog is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
    It’s by far the best I’ve read yet (no offense to anyone else). It’s all SO true, and funny and I don’t know… amazing. Seriously.
    I hope you don’t mind but I took the liberty of putting a link to it on my blog and advising my blog readers to take a look when they get the chance.
    I may have also quoted what you wrote on Nisha’s blog about Christmas a while ago…
    Anyways, can’t wait to see you in a few weeks!
