Not that I'm aware of. Just French and German. The Confraternity of Saint James website may be of interest as it lists some resources https://www.csj.org.uk/geneva-to-le-puy
Thank you. Would love to hear from some English-speaking, non-French-speaking pilgrims about their experience on the Gebennensis. I have taken a few lessons and speak what I sometimes describe as "restaurant menu" French, but I'm not conversational by any stretch. Is the Way sufficiently well marked that I am unlikely to get severely off course?

It is well marked.
If you Google Via Gebennensis, amongst the first few results you should stumble across my blog from a few years ago.

2016 Sjpp to Sdc. 2018 Lisbon to Sdc to Finisterre. Next up hopefully VDP or Del Norte.
You could try downloading the free SayHi app and playing with that to see how it might be useful to you.

You speak into your phone in English and it translates what you say in French.

Your French speaker then speakes into your phone and you get an English translation.

I use it all the time to cheat during my Duolingo Spanish lessons 😂

If we are lucky enough to get to do the Via Francigena next year, I'm planning to use the app to cover up my pre-kindergarten French. Oh la la!!

Thanks, interesting idea. Works in Google Translate, too. That may help with for face-to-face interpersonal communication although I'm not so sure about telephone conversations. What I'd really like to have is an English version of the printed guide with detailed route directions and lodging information.

Having an English printed guide makes total sense to me!

My German daughter-in-law says she thinks SayHi is very good for translation. Mind you she is fluent in English, French, German and speaks passable Italian. Now that woukd be handy for sure!

If you do find a good English guide, I would appreciate a heads up.

Cheers
