Magicians Around the World

Did you ever want to know how to say "Magician" in a dozen languages while you were traveling? Well...this is the most number of ways I could find to translate the word.

NB: In some languages the closest word I could find was "sorcerer." I listed them here because they actually do call stage magicians like David Copperfield "sorcerers."
