So far, Mood, this has been the highest compliment I could receive... Thank you, and thank your husband for me !
My Lurulu translation seems also to have thrilled my French editor (a lovely woman, by the way...)
Well, there are translators and translators. Some do it for love, some do it for money. Some have a fair knowledge of the original language, and some aren't (in a few days, I plan to post a few of the more bewildering blunders I've seen from translators, while doing some revision work...) Some are able to write in their own native language, and some don't. So it goes. Best is to read works in the original, but then, some 3,000 languages are recorded, who could know them all ?
