Smart Travelers Plan Ahead When Dealing with Foreign Languages…

As my regular readers are well aware, I am a bit of a travel addict…

I love exploring new places! While the majority of my travels have been within in the confines of English-speaking United States and the Caribbean, I’ve always dreamed of visiting Europe – Italy, specifically. It has always been my dream to take a two week vacation in Europe and to spend the majority of that time in Italy! It looks like that dream might be coming true next year, as my daughter is leaning towards a European vacation instead of a party for her sixteenth birthday.

Evening in Venice, foreign languages

Unfortunately, I don’t speak Italian – or any other foreign languages. That needs to be remedied immediately, because I don’t want to be one of those obnoxious tourists in a lovely destination that can’t communicate with anyone because she didn’t bother to learn at least the basics, like, “How much does that handbag cost?” or “What time does happy hour begin?”

Until I’ve saved up for language classes or an online tutorial, I found a great company that provides translation services! Whether it be legal, financial, medical or just technical translation, Rosetta Translation provides all of these services out of their offices in London, Shanghai, Paris, Luxembourg and New York. I like knowing that even if I don’t speak the language, I can rely on someone to professionally translate any documents I receive or need to send while arranging my overseas travels!

    I would definitely need a place that provides translation. Pretty much the only reason why I haven’t traveled over seas is because the language thing scares me.

    Good luck in your Italian studies, I hope they go well. It’s really a beautiful language. In bocca al lupo! That’s good luck in Italian, although literally it’s “in the mouth of the wolf”…kinda like break a leg! An Italian friend said that to me before my wedding, so I always remembered it.
