Thank you for sharing this useful article. Apr 7

I think this article tells why novelists or literature writer do not come to Proz.com to find a translator.

Thanks Ph_B

Very interesting article. I could never translate Domenico Starnone into English because he's a really, really bad writer in Italian and were I to reproduce this in bad English, everyone would think I had done a bad translation.
