Total Solar Eclipse in Other Languages

Compiled by Fred Espenak, Copyright 1999

Blue Bar



How do you say "Total Solar Eclipse" in other languages (besides English)? That's the question which Belgian eclipse chaser Patrick Poitevin ([email protected]) asked through his Solar Eclipse Mailing List (a monthly archive of SEML messages is compiled in the Solar Eclipse Newsletter).

The following list has been compiled from many SEML responses. I have made some additions as well as including translations for the words "Sun" and "Moon".

Please note that special characters not available in English may have been lost or mis-translated in preparing this table. Even e-mail between different types of computers (Windows, Macintosh, UNIX, etc.) may represent special characters differently from platform to platform. It is probably helpful to describe any special characters (e.g. - u with an umlaut, e with an accent, etc.) Please email Fred Espenak at MrEclipse with any corrections or additions to this list. If you know the html web language, it would be especially helpful to send your corrections with any special characters embedded in html format.
