Show Notes

While 1-StopAsia’s book Asian Language Translation is a friendly and approachable work that provides an interesting and straightforward introduction to Asian languages for localization projects, MultiLingual Magazine reviewer William Dan worries that it veers into the territory of Orientalism and oversimplification. Still, he argues that it does have some merit for localizers who don’t have any previous familiarity with Asian languages.
