When you click to see in the book (at Amazon), I see photos from Mitchel and Frank. Were any other members used? I would like to buy it in the future, and maybe I could contribute a photo to a future edition or a different book.

What a cool project!

Hi,

I'm now writing the English version of my banana book, the title of the English version will be "Bananas For Cold Climate", at the same time it will also be one update with 100 species and cultivars. The Brazilian version will be named "Bananas para cultivar no Brasil", in Portuguese. But my English version is a bit delayed, because I had an accident last October, I broke my right leg. One van snubbed me, the driver broke the traffic rules and his insurance pays compensation for personal suffering. I was operated and had to stay in the wheelchair for 3 months, since last Tuesday I'm learning to walk again. Now I can walk more and more better without crutches.

Best wishes
Basjoofriend

Felicidades Joachim por tu libro sobre bananas en alemán, estuve observando el indice y esta muy buena la publicación, porque abarca todas las enfermedades y otros aspectos muy importantes.

Ojalá más adelante exista una versión en español.

Default Re: New German banana book "Bananen in MItteleuropa" published!

Update: My publishing house bod.de is now offering one translation service to translate books from German to English. And I'm building one internet franchise business with my wife, this takes too much time. And to self translate from German to English it will take too much time to get my book quickly ready to publish. So I will write one new edition of my German banana book about banana cultivation worldwide, in the tropics, in the subtropics and colder climates, so that the new book will be flexible to be translated to English, Portuguese (for Brazil) and Spanish. When my new German worldwide version is ready, I will let the BoD translation service translate my book to English at first, the translation will take only 4 to 8 weeks acording of BoD. Then I will let translate the English version of my new banana book to Portuguese in Brazil with the help of my friend Helton, he has some friends which do speak German and Portuguese.

I will begin in Brazil in my mansion when my wife is working at the computer with internet, I will work with her notebook without internet in the kitchen. Currently we have only one internet link in Brazil, later we will let install one second internet link in our mansion. I will rebuild my old banana book to one for translations flexible edition. E. g. different climate maps and describitions for worldwide. Then you will see which climate zones Brazil, South America, North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand do have, and where the coldest areas where Musa basjoo will still overwinter outdoors. Not only the classic commerical banana growing areas! But for home gardens, greenhouses, wintergardens, container growing. Then many people in Brazil, South America and tropical countries will know that bananas do thrive also in colder climates with ice and snow!

Best wishes
Joachim

Try router, that should be efficient enough and it's pretty easy to build and configure, so that it works.

What type of climate maps do you intend to use? USDA, Koppens or something else?

Hi,

now is my manuscript ready, only I have to check, correct and improve it. It has approx. 200 pages. But it is still in German, the book title is in German "Tropische, subtropische und winterharte Bananen", the English version will have the title "Tropical, Subtropical And Coldhardy Bananas".

I'm looking for one lector which is speaking, reading and writing German very well. The lector will get one copy free after the publishing of the book. Anyone does speak German very welll?? Anyone is German and with best German language knowledges?

When the book is ready and improved, I will build one cover and convert the word document to pdf document to upload it to Ihr eigenes Buch erstellen und veröffentlichen: BoD - Books on Demand GmbH. bod.de has also the translation service, I will try to use it to get one English version for you.

Yes, the climate map is new, this is from one Brazilian website, one map of the world with the minimum temperatures in the past 30 years. So you can see, where you are able to overwinter one basjoo outdoors. E. g. in Russia, Japan, China, Argentina, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa, Afghanistan, Turkey, Ukraine, Romania, Aserbaidschan, Israel, Poland, Tschechei, Slowakei, Sweden, Canada, Patagonia, Ireland, Tasmania etc. The northernmost outdoor sites of Musa basjoo are in the warmest and mildest parts of Sweden and Norway. In Finland is the basjoo not hardy enough, but there Markku Häkkinen is living, he is one best known banana researcher.

@Jack Daw, I couldn't write in the kitchen in Brazil because of one missing mouse, I cannot use the touch pad of the notebook well, I can use the notebook with mouse better. I will buy one mouse and take it to Brazil. But I use the personal computer in the livingroom of my mansion.

Best wishes
Basjoofriend
