Hi everybody. This message was posted in a literary translators mailing list a few days ago and I thought it was very interesting. I am copying it here with permission from its original poster. I hope you find it interesting too...


Italian Literary Translators are preparing a letter, to be addressed to the

press (editors, reviewers, journalists, etc.) who regularly and

systematically \"forget\" to mention their names when reviewing or referring

to their work. They have already collected over 250 signatures and are

planning to publish the letter on major Italian daily papers around the

dates of the Turin bookfair (mid-may). The initiative is being promoted by

the members of the Italian mailing list biblit [ - web


If you are interested in reading, signing or get others to read and sign the

letter you will find it, in Italian, at

(You can also read it in English and Spanish.)

An excellent idea May 10, 2003

Would be great if reviewers and online booksellers would include the name of the translator in the \"technical data.\" Thanks for this post.
