I have the greatest respect and admiration for translators.

Avoiding the pitfalls encountered in translating one contemporary language into another, each with their own national and regional idioms, usages, double or triple entendres, etc. is already a Herculean task.

Translating something written in one languagee in say the 19th century into another contemporary language is mindboggling.
