Website history
The start of this website goes back to december 1995 when Hendrik Jan Hoogeboom started with the Manylanguages of Asterix. In 1997 Hans Selles also started a site dedicated to the Astrix comics. Both web sites joined together in the year 2000 as "Asterix around the World - the many languages of Asterix".

Our main goal is to show all the translations including the publishers, translated albums and year of publishing of the Asterix adventures created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.

This site would never have been what it is today without the help of many Asterix fans who have helped us. It is impossible to list everybody who have shared information with us, but we do like to say a special thank you to the following people: Christian Koehn, Walter Habraken, Bruno Carpaneto, TJK, Alvaro, Yann, George and Aleksandar.
We only know one words for this: FARPAITEMENT!!!
