Best Translation Quotes by Various Authors

"To translate, one must have a style of his own, for otherwise the translation will have no rhythm or nuance, which come from the process of artistically thinking through and molding the sentences; they cannot be reconstituted by piecemeal imitation. The problem of translation is to retreat to a simpler tenor of one's own style and creatively adjust this to one's author."

"Translation is entirely mysterious. Increasingly I have felt that the art of writing is itself translating, or more like translating than it is like anything else. What is the other text, the original? I have no answer.

by Ursula K. LeGuin

The plant must spring again from its seed, or it will bear no flower -- and this is the burthen of the curse of Babel."
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
