Permaculture Terms – a public resource

Since 2014 Rakesh “Rootsman Rak” has been sharing lists of commonly used terms and words for permaculture, forest gardening, and sociocracy. Each list is translated into 20+ languages and is a free resource for people (students, teachers, translators) to utilise. They are all listed on his website http://www.rootsnpermaculture.com
The translations are done by the public (crowdsourced). The online spreadsheets are writable by the public, so anyone can update this resource.
Rakesh says he typically emails this to students, translators, etc before each course so they can familiarise themselves with various terms or find a way to access these terms during the courses. Rakesh has had many teachers and students thanking him for this valuable resource, and he would like to extend an invitation for you to also make use of this or to help keep it updated. So please feel free to add words; fill in missing words; or correct translations. Also if you want to add another language, please contact Rakesh directly.
