About this project

Hi! My name is Nicole Natale and I've created a language series for anyone who loves adventure but would like to travel with more confidence while abroad. There are plenty of translation programs out there but nothing with these important specific phrases that you can learn to say yourself! I know how challenging and even scary it can be to have serious medical issues without being able to find the words to express my needs. It becomes especially distressing when it involves the safety of your children.

What we offer: This exclusive new language-learning audio series puts key words and phrases you need for nutrition, access, or medical assistance in easy reach so you can go where YOU want to go with confidence. Each instructional audiobook and phrase book is packed with entertaining lessons and practical terms you can use in any away-from-home situation.

The expansion: I'm proposing an addition to my already completed series, Rx: The Freedom to Travel. This new audiobook/app/printed book that I'm creating is aimed at travel with children with special needs such as Autism, Food allergies, Diabetes, Mobility issues, etc.

This is how it enhances YOUR life! Have children and love to travel? Are you a grandparent or just want to be able to communicate with/about children with special needs in a different language? This new audiobook will be for you!

Where would you go if you knew you could ask for the TLC you deserve? Have the confidence to get out and see the world! Don't let migraines, food allergies, diabetes, or mobility issues hold you back from the once-in-a-lifetime experiences that are waiting for you on the road. Take back your freedom to travel with Rx: The Freedom to Travel Language Series! Venture! 

Your participation makes it possible to create this important dimension of Rx: The Freedom to Travel. Our goal to cover the cost is $15,000 and we have only 40 days to kickstart it! Imagine how your investment in this project will remove obstacles and unlock the world of cultures, cuisines and life-enhancing experiences for children with special needs by opening the door of communication!
 
 

Risks and challenges

One of the main challenges in creating a product concerning health and a foreign language is having precise/ expert translation. We want to make sure that everything that is communicated takes into account local idiomatic expressions. If we encounter a native speaker or expert linguist who questions the way something is described we will research until we are 100% confident we are covering the safest and most current language for each situation. This may add additional time to the completion of the project. We will do our best to stay on target but will not sacrifice excellence and produce an inferior product. Thank you! We hope you feel that this is the right choice for all of the families that may utilize this series in the future.
