Enlightening Mr. Osama Nov 4, 2009

Great work Mr. Osama, your article encourages improvement.

"the translator must dive deeply into the work and taste it so thoroughly so as to completely understand the author's intent, regardless of how easy it may, at first, seem or how familiar it may sound."

Remarkable and informative.
