Find A Vietnamese Translator

YourVietBooks is a project initiated by Anh Tho Andres, a multi-lingual translator, author and lecturer living in Switzerland. As a translator, she wishes to share her knowledge of her home country to readers who wish to know more about Vietnam: The Culture, The Land and The People.

YourVietBooks recommends a selection of books and articles on and about Vietnam.

Categories include: Culture, History, Vietnam War, Politics, Biographies, Contemporary Vietnam, International Relations, Doing Business in Vietnam, Reference and Languages, Zen Buddhism, Philosophy, Art and Literature.

Some books are written by Vietnamese Authors in the original version, and represent an invaluable witness to world literature and mankind's history. Other documents are the fruits of long years of research on topics such as the Vietnam War, Vietnam's Integration, Contemporary Vietnam. Works written by foreign Authors (in English, French or German) are valuable documentation on how Vietnam and its people are perceived in the eyes of the World.
