Tourist information in foreign languages

NEW DELHI, DEC. 26. Come February and visitors from non-English speaking countries will no longer have problems in knowing details of Delhi as useful tourist information will be available in their own languages.

The Delhi Government has embarked on an ambitious plan to make information about the city and its places of tourist attraction available in French, Spanish, German and possible even in Japanese and Chinese.

``Work on compiling the information in the European languages has already started and we hope we can start the services in February,'' Delhi Minister for Tourism and Education Arvinder Singh Lovely told PTI.

``Chinese and Japanese are also expected to be added to the list soon,'' he added.

The information will be available on websites and in computerised kiosks in offices of Delhi Transport and Tourism Development Corporation (DTTDC).

Lovely said there are plans to set up similar kiosks at the Indira Gandhi International Airport here and inter-state bus terminals (ISBTs) for the benefit of tourists on the move.

Besides details about tourist attractions of the capital, there will also be information about how to get around the city and hotels.

Outlining other plans of Delhi Government to make the city more attractive for tourists, Lovely said there is a proposal to appoint magistrates to ensure cleanliness at heritage sites and protect them from encroachment.
