Nekita,

translation is a big problem, and not only for religious texts.

One thing I was thinking: I'd like to take a short paragraph from Jaf's book and ask several people (including Jaf) to translate it to english and then french. No dout the translations will differ and some will even go very far from Jaf's original intent in his text. Now, imagine somebody taking one of these translations and use it to talk at lengtht about the mind of its author...
