Robertson Davies

Nice review of Zweig's Fouche!

This is a great picture of a graphic sequential art artist as it shows how he organized his work space, an inked page and a computer screen with the finished product.
Voici trois auteurs canadiens incontournables selon moi. Nancy Huston autant pour ses romans que pour ses essais. Robertson Davies et Margaret Atwood. Les deux ont été souvent sur la liste des auteurs canadiens susceptibles de gagner le prix Nobel de littérature. Davis est décédé mais Atwood est toujours en vie.
Thanks for your comment on my review of Z for Zorglub. My reviews quite often contain spoilers, so I decided to stick to Danish. Whoever translates them does so at their own risk.

Google actually did a good job in translating it. I spent the past week in Germany and some of the tourist brochures were quite funny after a trip to googletranslate :-)

Google translates names - like Harz - too, so....

Der Harz
Der Harz ist die höchste Erhebung Norddeutschlands.

is translated into:

The resin
The resin is the highest peak of northern Germany.

Still it is a huge help. Just like you I've often translated a review in a language I don't read well into something useful (and/or funny).
