Not necessarily related to translation but if you are fond of pigs have a look here:
http://www.porkopolis.org/index.php It is really astonishing to see how much has been written and how many pictures have been painted around and about this rather unboastful animal!

I forgot to post their own introduction:
"Porkopolis.org is a collection of arts, literature, philosophy and other varied considerations of the pig. In the irreducible complexity of what we call nature, pigs are one of the most iconic and paradoxical animals ever to have developed a relationship with man. Some form of pig has been visibly present in the vast majority of human societies. The pig is a grand character in much of human’s cultural history."
