Kako Se Kaže

Personal Document Translation

Professor Nicholas Lovrich of Washington State University will return to CroatiaFest to look at your precious letters and personal documents.  Our own Jasmina Cernak will be on hand to translate letters for you.  We encourage you to bring clear photo copies of the documents-not the originals. 

How do you say “iron”, “shoes” or “hat” in your native Croatian dialect?   There will be a display board of photos of various every-day items for you to name from your particular region.

Stop by their Kako Se Kaže booth on the main floor of the Armory to talk with Professor Lovich and Jasmina, show them your treasures and have fun with the display board.
