What is a translation consultant?

International (MNN) – Translation work, at a glance, might seem like a pretty simple job. Don’t you just translate, word for word, from one language to another? But in reality, it’s not that easy. Throw in words that have no equal in another language, cultural connotations, and different grammatical structure, and things get complicated pretty quickly. This is why the workers at Wycliffe Bible Translators are so diverse in their skillsets. And one job you may have never thought of within this...

The spiciest cuisines in the world

The chile pepper is as divisive a food as there is. People can either handle the heat and enjoy the pain, or they avoid every bit of pepper like it’s the plague. The group of people in the middle know their limit and stick to the devil they know. When traveling abroad to a chile-pepper-loving country, however, you can be in for a fiery surprise. Every chile pepper — from China to Ethiopia to Peru and back — originally comes from Central and South America. The plant spread around the world dur...

On Chic Footing: Understated Doormats from Colombia

Doormats are not the most glamorous category in the decor department. But a doormat is often the first thing that guests see upon entering a home (perhaps we would all do well to give it more thought?). Recently, we spotted some great versions that are made of fique, a natural, biodegradable fiber that’s similar to jute in feel. (Fique is traditionally used in Colombia and Peru to make coffee sacks, baskets, and shoes.) The doormats are designed by Giselle Hernandez, the founder of LA-based onli...

Story about eccentric meteorite hunters in search of a Peruvian meteorite

Joshua Bearman has long been one of my favorite journalists (he wrote the Wired story that was adapted as the movie Argo, and a profile of the super weird software mogul John McAfee).
