Default FREE: Accessible Travel Phrase Book PDF by Lonely Planet

Can you say multiple sclerosis in 35 languages? If you travel, download this free phrasebook to your phone. Today. Asking for an accessible bathroom, an elevator, and countless other essentials when you have a disability just got way easier.

---------------

All travellers will get more out of their trip by being able to speak a few words of the local language, but for people with a disability it’s often vital to be able to explain your particular needs. Since standard phrasebooks are unlikely to contain the language you need to talk about needs around disability we’ve gathered together some disability-specific words and phrases and translated them into as many different languages as we practically could. Although things are slowly changing for the better, there are still plenty of barriers to travel for people with a disability – language doesn’t have to be yet another.

35 languages, from Arabic to Vietnamese
About 100 disability-specific words and phrases
Easy-to-use pronunciation guides
Glossary of common conditions
Vocabulary relating to hotels and transportation
Equipment you might need
Explaining about your allergies
Getting help

Working with a virtual army of volunteer translators, Lonely Planet’s Martin Heng has created the first-ever accessible phrase book. Accessible Travel Phrase Book features disability-specific words and phrases translated into 35 different languages, pronunciation guides, vocabulary related to hotels and transportation and even food allergies.

With this downloaded onto a traveler’s device, they can ask, Hay escalón en el baño (Are there steps into the bath?) while in Mexico, or, Pues-je visiter La Tour Eiffel en fauteuil roulant (Can I visit the Eiffel Tower in a wheelchair?) when touring Paris.
