Speaking of translation, could someone please translate elkhound's second to last post?  I'm curious.

"Every translator is a traitor."  It doesn't come across quite as well in English (thus proving the point.)

A similar saying--and highly sexist, so I haven't brought it up until now:  "Translations and women: beautiful or faithful, seldom if ever both."

Thanks.  I like the saying.  The second one is funny, even if it is sexist.  Switch in the word 'people' instead, and you can make it neutral, and prove the first point even within a single language.  :)
