Lost in Translation, Bridge Street Books

Lost in Translation brings to life more than fifty words that don’t have direct English translations, with charming illustrations of their tender, poignant, and humorous definitions. Often these words provide insight into the cultures they come from, such as the Brazilian Portuguese word for running your fingers through a lover’s hair, the Italian word for being moved to tears by a story, or the Swedish word for a third cup of coffee. In this clever and beautifully rendered exploration of the subtleties of communication, readers will find new ways to express themselves while getting lost in the artistry of imperfect translation.
