Mayte Picco-Kline is our board member in charge of coordinating the translations of Peace Pilgrim's words and we believe that she has done a spectacular job. At the present time, you can find on the Peace Pilgrim website translations of the book, Peace Pilgrim: Her Life and Work in Her Own Words, in 18 languages and her Steps Towards Inner Peace in 32 languages, all available in easily downloadable free editions. This was possible because of the great efforts of numerous people, for whom we at Friends of Peace Pilgrim feel great gratitude.
We first met Mayte around 1989 when she offered to help create a Spanish language edition of the Peace Pilgrim book. We have kept this Spanish language edition in print ever since.
We currently offer the Peace Pilgrim book as a digital download in the following languages in addition to English:
Chinese, Croatian, Dutch, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish and Tamil.
Friends of Peace Pilgrim has actually produced three printed language editions of the Peace Pilgrim book. In addition to the English and Spanish printed editions, we also produced a Russian language edition, of which we printed 20,000 copies (and 50,000 copies of the Russian language Steps). These were printed in Moscow and how that came about will be the subject of a future post.
We also currently offer printed editions of Steps Toward Inner Peace in Arabic and Hebrew. It is available for download in 32 languages:
Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Esperanto, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Korean, Nepali, Norwegian, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Tamil, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.
