in other words …

“Translation is like a woman. If it is beautiful, it is not faithful. If it is faithful, it is most certainly not beautiful.” ~ Yevgeny Yevtushenko
 
I absolutely adore foreign translations of my books. Typically, the titles and cover art are changed to something completely different, and I eagerly anticipate the publication so that I can see what they’ve come up with.  Check out some of the editions below and see if you can guess which cover goes with which English version … and for a little more fun, pop the titles into your translation software.  I love the literal translations of some of them : )
