My vote goes to this topic: http://www.proz.com/topic/801 in the Russian forum. It is still active and it was started 2 years back. It has had so far 230 postings and 12,804 viewings. And the person who started it is no longer a member.

I am curious to know, whether any other threads of this nature are still around.

I don't think this is off-topic and hence am not checking the box meant for it.

Regards,
N.Raghavan

Can't really top that, but... Dec 16, 2003

The one you mention, "Anglo-Saxon Attitudes" (started Dec 12 2001), is probably the best candidate I know of (though there must be others - I would be surprised if the Spanish forum, by far the largest in terms of the number of pages, topics and posts - does not have something).
But I myself opened a topic on September 18th 2001, and while it's not active at the moment, it had a fairly recent post on September 4th this year. See http://www.proz.com/topic/285

In fact I expected a reply from you of all people and am gratified to note that you have risen to the occasion. One cannot expect anything less than that from a doughty person. On seeing your profile I see that when I started my career as a German translator in 1975, you were 28 years my senior in the field and now in 2003 your experience is double that of mine. In fact seeing you still active makes assures me that it is possible and I should be active in 2031 as well.
And talking of the post quoted by you, it is way above my head as I am scared of even attempting literary translation.
Regards,
N.Raghavan

to read about that, make me think of the topic on the french forum about the difference of culture between the americans and the french.

Maybe one day someone will post the best bits translated on the net, who knows...
