A smart move to name translator on cover Feb 22, 2011

If the translation is all the reader has to go by, then the reader is totally dependent on the translator's interpretation of the text's meaning, not to mention on his or her skill with words. I ALWAYS look for the translator's name before buying a classic in translation. Putting the name on the cover could even result in more sales! Thank you for sharing the good news!
