I love books. I love languages. I am pleased to bring you a website that brings together these interests to connect with people who share them.

What makes a translation accurate?

How hard can it be for translators to just “get it right”? Quite hard, since there’s no single objectively correct equivalent for a lot of the words and expressions they handle. Consider any idiomatic expression, such as an informal term of endearment, and you’ll quickly see how hard it can be.
