What's the longest piece of literature you have translated?
post #54798 of 58251
It's only literature in the very broad sense of the term that I ever translate. I typically translate philosophy texts, which are often in the form of 25 page articles or so. I think the longest thing I've translated from French is probably about 70 pages. Although it looks likely that I'll be undertaking a translation of a 200-some page book soon.

I can't speak as to how it is with other languages, but when I was a missionary in Japan we used to laugh at the translations of common hymns into Japanese. Usually by the end of the verse you had maybe gotten through the first line of the English version. They didn't seem to translate very well at all.

As some of you know, I grew up in Wisconsin, which is a state of the United States. Naturally enough, some of my FB friends are people I knew from my years in said state. I swear I am not even making this up some of my friends regularly post pictures of their hotdishes to Facebook. How Wisconsin is that? (Very.)

So I wasn't going to post this on this thread but I am pretty excited and can't contain myself. I am getting paid to go to Europe for almost 2 weeks this summer. This is exciting for a poor like me.

I just received a box of guitar products from my brother, including an Eleven Rack. (It's a product that does lots of things, including emulating the tones of many classic guitar amps.) Now I am having much fun with it even what I should be doing tasks of labor.
