What is Oradan?
Oradan is a web start up, spawned out of our belief that life’s hassles happen due to a lack of adequate information.
We aim to provide a directory with a rating and review system, paired with editorial content in the form of expert guides.
In essence, we want the website to encourage conversation between users and vendors – a platform where users post their comments and vendors respond and/or provide expert advice.
What does Oradan mean?
Ora (Talking) is taken from the Greek prefix of words like oral, oracle, orator. Ora also means coast in Latin, and its double meaning serves as both setting and attitude for the user experience.
Dan (Directory) is Chinese for list and Japanese for discussion (and also in martial arts to denote ranking).
Taken apart, Oradan is:
• Ora = Prefix in oral, oracle, orator
• Ora = Coast in Latin
• Dan = List in Chinese
• Dan = Discussion or Talk in Japanese
• Dan = Ranking system in Budo (Japanese martial arts)
