Georgian (ქართული)

Georgian is the native language of the Georgians and the official language of Georgia, a country in the Caucasus. Gorgian is the primary language of about 3.9 million people in Georgia itself, and of another 500,000 abroad (chiefly in Turkey, Iran, Russia, the USA and the rest of Europe). It is the literary language for all regional subgroups of the Georgian ethnos, including those who speak other South Caucasian or Kartvelian languages: Svans, Mingrelians, and the Laz. Judaeo-Georgian, sometimes considered[who?] a separate Jewish language, is spoken by an additional 20,000 in Georgia and 65,000 elsewhere (primarily 60,000 in Israel). (Ref: Wikipedia)

Georgian on whatamieating.com

To find foods and foods and food-related items in whatamieating.com in Georgian you may search by any of the following terms:
Georgia Georgian Russia Russian

These terms associated with languages are hidden behind the scenes as there is some crossover with other languages. The traveller in Georgia may not be precisely certain which language is in use, and can search using more general terms such as 'Russian''.

You may use any of the above terms in any search you make using 'Translate from English' so that if you wish to search for a translation of aubergine, choose whichever of these language terms that you think is most appropriate, say:
'Georgia eggplant' and then click on 'Translate from English'

One of the problems of providing searches in a multilingual world-wide food dictionary is trying to help people reach the things they are searching for. People do not always know the precise language being used, so these more general searches such as  'Russian' may help in a successful search.
