Dear colleague,

Do you have a list of all (or most) countries of the world and its translation? or do you know where to find it?
I am mainly interested in the combination EN-NL (and possibly EN-DE).

Thanks!


Laurens.

Dear Laurens,

Have a look at Wikipedia

http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landen_van_de_wereld

Best regards,

Christine

Wikipedia Oct 3, 2007

You might want to try the interwiki links at Wikipedia. When you are in a country's article on the English Wikipedia, you can go with you cursor across the links to corresponding articles in other languages and you will see the name of the country in that particular language.

Thanks !! Oct 3, 2007

Thanks everyone,

I found the links very useful, for future reference as well!

But I was really looking for a list where the names were in plain text, not a clickable url.; if anyone knows where to obtain such a list, or how to retrieve the text from these sites, please drop me a line (or respond to this posting)

Laurens.

Praktijkwoordenboek Oct 3, 2007

Hi Laurens,

this may not be exactly what you need, but in the Van Dale Praktijkwoordenboeken (also available on CD-Rom) there is a list of countries.
You then look them up in the alphabetical list (inbetween all the other words) and there is a box with translation of the country's name and some additional information (what are the natives called, capital, etc. ) in both languages. I find this very useful.

Good luck!
Margreet
