This is a page to bring together Wikitreers with language skills (who are able and willing to volunteer some time and energy from time to time), with those Wikitreers who need assistance in interpreting a resource in a language other than their own.

If you ARE seeking information or assistance please keep in mind that the people listed here may not be available for help when you need it and that they are under no obligations to provide it at all. Approach with no expectations and you will not be disappointed. Wikitree is a collaborative resource that works well because so many people give freely of their time. Please try to give back to our community if you can.

For glossaries (definitions of common foreign language terms) see Wikitree language resources. Help us improve this list with definitions for languages not already included or by expanding exisiting definitions.

For other related information and help see the Genealogy Help section.
