JPaul told me about a wonderful reference book of knitting terms in foreign languages. I have had need for such a book from time to time as I will occasionally get a pattern from Europe which is not in English. Recently, I obtained a pattern in French to knit a Becassine doll and I couldn't follow it.
The book "Knitting Lanugages" by Margaret Heathman (2005) is a spiral bound 240 page book. The dedication is noteworthy: "This book is dedicated to all knitters who look beyond themselves to the wider world and embrace a universal knitting heritage." Sounds to me a lot like our MWK community! The languages translated into English are: Danish, Estonian, French, German, Icelandic, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, and then a reverse listing of English into these languages. I can speak some Italian so I found that section a lot of fun. I photographed the page with the Swedish terms in honour of our Scandanavian members!
