For those of you who are used to knitting patterns in other languages, here are some links to knitting term translation dictionaries that I have found useful:

The WiseNeedle Glossary :

The Textile Dictionary from The Textile Rooms:
http://www.textilerooms.com/textile_dictionary/texile%20dictionary.php

List of knitting chart symbols from an Italian yarn manufacturer:

German knitting chart symbols from Burda knitting patterns:

Nice links, Gardenmermaid :)

Garnstudio has a nice translation charts, too - including English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, German, French and Spanish.

Their home page is here:
