Welcome to the Other games forum! This forum is part of the Translator playground: a place for translators to have fun, to network, to learn, and to hone their translation or linguistic skills. See the announcement here.
Need a quick break from work? In this area translators and language professionals can play games and share material which do not fit in other categories within the Translator playground.

If you need help or would like to propose an addition to the Translator playground, contact site staff through the online support system.


If someone were to ask you whether or not you’d read Trimalchio in West Egg, your first instinct might be to say ‘no’, and your second might be to marvel at the curious range of titles given to cookery books nowadays. Sorry to say, you’re possibly wrong on both counts – you might well have read Trimalchio in West Egg without realizing it, since that was an early title for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.

Can you identify which famous books were nearly called something completely different?


Play the game here.
