    Hi , thanks for this introduction to translating food. I recommend a 2020 updating! As a French, I'd like to point out a tiny mistake in one of the first slides (Cultural perceptions) unless it was intentional, it is "hors d'oeuvre" not hors d'ouvre).

    The presentation of the content is very well structured and I think Valentina included all of the topic's most important aspects. (The only thing I missed was that she didn’t mention the translation of cookbooks). The video also contains many interesting hints, examples and links to useful resources. Very recommendable!
