Cultural transcendency and basal linguistics in Tangents

Time and Temp has a couple of interesting skills of advanced social science that should make a serious dimension-traveller's life easier.

Cultural transcendency allows the user to blend in and seem unremarkable in any cultural setting, even where their personal characteristics would be expected to make their presence surprising or offensive. Basal linguistic technique can interpret and convey meaning in any spoken language, though since it relies on both speech and gestures, it doesn't work in situations where the user can't see and be seen by the other party (for instance, over the phone).

Presumably a character could use them together, so that the locals are unlikely to notice that he doesn't actually speak the language.
