Hey Tumblr,
We’re working on a post about words in different languages that don’t have direct translations in English. For example, in German, schilderwald is said when a street has so many street signs, you get confused. And in Japanese, age-tori is to look worse after a haircut.
If you know any other words like these from around the world, let us know here on Tumblr!

Do you know any untranslateable words?
