Shrimp Translation Tips

Shrimp Translation Tips are a collection of "how do you say Shrimp" in a few other languages.  If you can provide more, we --and other shrimp lovers -- will certainly be in your debt.

Readers are cautioned to take care in using these translations to avoid misunderstandings.   Some of the terms appear to refer to the equivalent of "shrimp" as a small person which is derived  from Middle English shrimpe, meaning "pygmy," and not the crustacean which we mainly discuss on this web site.
