Yes it is.

 

indeed so.

I bought myself a copy through curiosity, and it contains helpful phrase/s for people who are vegetarian/vegan, in a whole variety of different languages.

 

Of course, bear in mind that simply saying "I am vegan" or "I am vegetarian" in a coherent way linguistically, doesn;t mean that anyone will necessarily know what you mean. As is demonstrated regularly when saying this in our own languages, hehe.

 

If in doubt, simply carry a carrot, a head of broccoli and a knife at all times.

This has two purposes...

 

Firstly, if you ever cannot find food, you have a carrot and some broccolli. Which is all that vegans eat anyway, apart from twigs and sticks I guess, so that should be thoroughly adequate for your needs.

 

Also, if you start to shriek and stab the vegetables with a wild look in your eyes, it is like a universal way of expressing "I am vegan".

The locals are guaranteed to love your quirky foreign ways and be amused and jovial with you, if you follow this approach.

you could get the word 'vegan' done, with the different languages of 'vegan' making up the word in smaller text.

 

I like that idea!

Or just the letter "V," made up of 'vegan' in different languages.

 

I agree, though, that just saying 'vegan' won't cut it in most places. Better would be the 'vegan passport' type thing.

 

You can maybe find the word for 'vegan' in some other languages by going to Wikipedia, searching 'vegan' in the English version, then looking down at the left side of the page and seeing what other languages have articles on it. Then click that language, and you'll have the word for 'vegan.'
