30 Untranslatable Words From Other Languages

Saturday, May 24th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Illustrator Anjana Iyer’s goal is to take words that do not translate word for word into English and illustrate them. 

When I found this on Bored Panda, I knew I had to share it with all of you. It encompasses my love of art and language in a really neat way. 

I had to pin the illustration for Fernweh onto Pinterest so that I could find it easily whenever I wanted. I’ve experienced fernweh most of my life for Venice. There’s this little ache in my heart when I look at image of Venice. I dream about it all the time, wandering the streets, exploring the canals, needless to say I plan on visiting there in the future. But it is really nice to have a word that encapsulates that feeling. 

When you arrive at the page you can just scroll down to look through the illustrations. There’s a short blurb beforehand that provides some information and a very pertinent link to the project over on 100 Days. The nice thing about checking out 100 Days link is that there are 12 more illustrations to look at! 

Go check these out today and discover words found in translation!
