#nurinmeinersprache-action by the Goethe-Institut

There are words that exist in only one language. They express specific feelings such as a great readiness for self-sacrifice, physical attributes like having one leg shorter than the other, or special customs like chatting together after a meal.

Under the hashtag #nurinmeinersprache, the Goethe-Instituts worldwide are collecting such untranslatable words from their host countries on Facebook and Twitter. Whether India, Estonia, Uruguay or Egypt –  all these countries and many more have set off in search of unique words that can be translated only with difficulty into other languages.  

Read everything about the action #nurinmeinersprache on the website of the Goethe-Institut and participate with unique and #untranslatable words in your language!
