Is That a Fish in Your Ear? (book review) David Bellos
Translation and the Meaning of Everything
110912: i only read in english, so i am so very glad there are people out there who translate. or my range of reading would be much less. perhaps i could translate french with time, patience, and a good dictionary. but japanese..?
about 33% (now 35%)(now %39) of what fiction i read are from other languages. i decided some years ago that i would just read translations rather than start reading again learning simple books for children, gradually building up to adult books… because i thought of how many languages i would need to learn and this in my monolingual environment…
