Recipe book translated into Swahili

by Anthony Karomba & Roland Valckenborg

“After giving the master class on Hugh Piggott wind turbines in Tanzania, it was recognized by the participants that not everybody is familiar with the English language. During the master class this was not a very big problem, because participants could help eachother translating English into Kiswahili, which is the national language of Tanzania. However, after the training all participants went back to their homes in very different parts of Tanzania. Although mobile phones are increasingly covering the country, it appears to be difficult for a lot of Tanzanian workshop artisans – also called ‘fundi’ – to help eachother on translating. Therefore it was decided to make an extra manual in the Kiswahili language. ”

About hugh

I live off-grid in NW Scotland and have spent my life playing with wind turbines. I also love small hydros. Hands on renewable energy is my thing and I like to learn and to share my experiences.
