Conversations Overheard

‘Reading a translation is not unlike overhearing a conversation in a room four doors away. The best translators can knock a wall or two away; the worst may as well have given you a pair of ear-muffs’  (Jaymer Veers)

Well indeed. Still, some translators can let you into a much better conversation than the one you can’t quite hear (I’m thinking, of course, of Luis Funñel).
