I would like to know your opinions on the difficulty of translating lyrics into another language. Many who venture into this 'category' take the task light-heartedly until they realize it's as difficult as translating poems. I believe one thing is translating the mere words of a song and another thing is translating the concepts and deep meaning along with any 'in-between-the-lines' meaning behind the lyrics written by the songwriter.
Thank you.

Robert
