Translation Romani has decided to maintain use of the word Romani in all language versions of this website, inclusively and in reference both to the language and people of all the diverse ethnic communities throughout the world, i.e. Roma, Sinti, Manuš, Calé, Romanichal, Kalé, and many others. Please read the important notes from our translators for explanations and other translations currently in use locally, nationally or regionally.

Translating History -- on the Romani Front Line
Translators have historically been the silent, often invisible, channels bridging the contact and transfer of knowledge and cultural expression. Their individual stories interweave within global histories of exploration, commerce, colonization and warfare, forging new identities in the narrations of local and global history.
