    This article is a travel topic

This page lists the foreign language phrasebooks currently available on Wikitravel. For more general information on language and travel, see Talk.

These phrasebooks are not language tutorials, comprehensive grammars, or dictionaries. Their goal is to define just enough of the language so that an English-speaking traveller can "get by" in an area where that language is spoken. A few languages are very widely used throughout the world and are listed first. All other languages are listed under the continent where they are most closely identified. For more general information about traveling in areas where you don't speak the language, see here. If you are not sure which languages are spoken in the country you plan to visit, see the "Talk" section of the article for that country.

WikiTravel phrasebooks which are substantially complete are colored green in the list below, though they may still benefit from your improvement. For all the other books, please contribute if you speak the language in question. If you need a phrasebook for a language not listed here, try adding it to the Requests for phrasebooks page. Or simply plunge forward and start the book yourself.

Initial phrasebook development was organized through the Phrasebook Expedition.

Phrasebooks are color coded according to their level of completion and overall quality­ as outlined at Wikitravel:Phrasebook status:
