In Translation

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

A group for making and getting recommendations on literature in translation, or discussing relevant issues. If this is a duplicate (rather than the flip side of In the Original), I apologize.
