Here is a page with English & botanical names of most Asian vegetables: http://www.nre.vic.gov.au/trade/asiaveg/thes-00.htm
As for Sudanese, in the north of Sudan they speak Arabic & the vegetables are pretty similar to Mediteranean European faire with the addition of Jute (Corchorus Olitorius). I would be happy to translate a specific item for you if need be- just mail me off list.
In southern Sudan, people speak indigenous languages like Dinka or Baree, for which you will probably not find any English dictionaries.

Plant information needed regarding Vietnamese/English and Sudanese/English translation for vegetable plants. Our international community garden groups are looking for assistance identifying possible English names for vegetables traditionally grown in these countries. Any information pertaining to references, books, or knowledge of people versed with plant taxonomy/ID doing research in this area would be very much appreciated!
