Talent voor Taal
Translating is a very difficult task. It's not only a matter of changing words; you have to adapt the meaning from one language into another.
“It is not difficult to write in Spanish; the Spanish language is a gift from the gods which we Spaniards take for granted. I take comfort therefore in the belief that you wished to pay tribute to a glorious language and not to the humble writer who uses it for everything it can express: the joy and the wisdom of Mankind, since literature is an art form of all and for all, although written without deference, heeding only the voiceless, anonymous murmur of a given place and time.”
Camilo Jose Cela
