98% probably means not even close Feb 11, 2015

I recently translated Gryphius's Cardenio and Celinde. About a year and a half ago I would have also described myself as 98% done. What was the 98% - the first draft of the translation. After that it was necessary to revise at least 3 times, i.e. compare with the original, then check to make sure the metric structure of each line was accurate, then it was necessary to add the numerous footnotes due to obscure references in the text, and so on. When zou have a full time job, in my case translating and in Sullivan's case teaching, it takes a long time to finalize such a text. Nonetheless, it does sound interesting. Good post.
