11. Worldwide Room
The Worldwide Room is the penultimate room of our tour of the Clean Collection. Our colleagues in other countries have translated the Clean Language questions and a number of our articles into their own language. They have also contributed their own articles.

Currently the Clean Language questions have been translated into Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Polish, Portuguese Russian, Spanish and Swedish.

James Lawley and I (Penny Tompkins) have been involved in some of the translating of the Clean Language questions and were amazed how exacting this could be.  In France they spent a long time trying to find the most appropriate translation for the “And is there anything else about ...?” question, while in Italy, “And that’s like what?” had translators scratching their heads. The process each group went through to find the words to convey the function of each question would be worthy of displaying in the Applications Room — if only someone had written it down!

While Metaphors in Mind has been published in both French and Italian, many of the translations of the questions are still work-in-progress, so if you have a suggestion or comment please send it to the Worldwide Curator for these pages, Phil Swallow using the contact form.

We welcome relevant articles in other languages and offers to translate existing articles.

Adios, arrivederci, au revoir to this room and on to the last room which features Classic NLP.
