Did you get them all right? It’s a sign of respect to pronounce someone’s name correctly, but, sadly, when working internationally, it’s a pretty difficult task… Or do speak German, Armenian, Farsi and Maasai?
Howtosaythatname is a website that does just that, tell you how to say names in the different languages of the world. Very straightforward to use. Elisabeth Bojang, who is running the site, is currently specifically looking for Arabic, Thai, Hmong and Italian speakers to add names in their languages… Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you want to contribute.
