More than 5 million people visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial each year in Washington, D.C.  While they come from all over the world, until recently, there was no information for them in any language but English.

Thanks to a partnership with TranscribeMe.com, a company that specializes in transcription services, the nonprofit Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) is providing translated fact sheets about The Wall to visitors in nine different languages, including:

  • Vietnamese
  • Chinese
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Portuguese
  • Spanish

The fact sheets give an overview of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial which includes: The Wall, the Three Servicemen Statue, Vietnam Women’s Memorial and In Memory plaque.


“VVMF built The Wall and still maintains it with the National Park Service,” said Jim Knotts, President and CEO of VVMF.  “Offering information in multiple languages is just one of the ways we provide the best possible experience to visitors who want to learn about the Vietnam War and the veterans who fought it.  We honor them every day, and we want all visitors to understand the significance of their service and sacrifice.”

VVMF is pleased to have this partnership with TranscribeMe so visitors from around the world can better understand the importance of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
