Simple Definition of conversion: The act or process of changing from one form, state, etc., to another (www.merriam-webster.com)
At Place2Place we deal with conversions daily, from currency to time zones. Our assignees see this first hand when moving from one country to another. What may have seemed like a simple task, such as figuring out what the temperature it is outside may be challenging if you do not know what the formula is to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius. Or understanding how big a home is, or figuring out the price/quantity when putting gas/diesel/petrol in your vehicle.
We have outlined some of the more commonly used conversion charts, and provided links to online conversion calculators, and sites that provide apps that you can install on your smart phone, so it is always at your fingertips.
In studying other cultures, we learn more about ourselves and our relationship to all things in this world.
