Translations of Melissa Kaplan's Iguana and Herp Care Articles

Includes resources for online word and document translators

Compiled by Melissa Kaplan


Through the years, iguana and other herp keepers from around the world have asked my permission to translate some of my articles into their own language to help herp keepers in their countries better keep those species. Once they have complete the translations and put them up at their websites, they let me know the URL for those pages.

Two important notes:

  • I do not speak the languages into which my articles have been translated so have no way of really verifying the accuracy of the information translated.
  • The translated versions of articles may not represent the most current English version of the article at my site as I make additions and changes through the years. In the case of translations of my Iguana Care, Feeding and Socialization (ICFS) article, the translations generally reflect the 1995-1999 versions, not the most recent major revisions I made in July 2002 (contained in the 75 page PDF file at my ICFS page).

Online Translator Sites
Some intrepid souls have made translations of some of my articles and put them up at their sites. As I find out about them, I put links to them here on my Translations page, in the sections above.

There are some websites that will translate web documents for you. You may still need to ask some questions, and the translator is likely to stumble over medical and biology terminology (as well as colloquial words like "poop"), but they should give you a good head start. Some online web page translators include:

AltaVista's Babelfish
Google's Language Tools
Systran Online Translation

There are also word translators, such as (formerly DictSearch), TravLang and Google's Language Tools.
