Last week, I asked the lovely ladies at Edittorrent about different languages in a book and what the best way to represent that while writing. I think her answer and the comments on the post are super insightful! You can check out the post here.

On the other hand, sometimes people write books and all of the characters are meant to be talking in a totally different language than what it’s written in. Some books are written in the past, like the Victorian era, or in the future. Just like with portraying the use of another language, as a writer, you need to show your readers that they aren’t speaking like we do in modern times!
