Wow-worthy Words with Joachim LépineWow!

Discover words that into-English translators never think to use (but should).

It’s easy to produce bland, generic, insipid translations that more or less get the meaning across (properly referred to in the field as ‘flapdoodle’). But it’s also a risky proposition, because you’re sure to leave your reader cold and unimpressed. Not to mention that it’s no fun.

If you want to spark joy, showcase your human value, wow your clients, and enthral your readers, you need to dare to use colourful real-life words that turn heads and move hearts – just like professional writers do every day.
