Translating Languages While Traveling

Students from Longview High School in Texas recently contacted ALTA to ask for advice about a class project. Their project is part of an Engineering Design and Development course where the students try to fix an everyday problem. The problem they chose: “translating languages while traveling.”

Their letter included several questions, and we will be sending them answers to these; but, we thought it might be fun, and helpful to the students, to ask our readers:

What translation or language problems have you run into while traveling, and how did you solve them?

There are many common problems and common solutions, so put some thought into it and share your more interesting stories and solutions!
