As I announced last Fall, David, at Artifacs Libros has been translating the Green Comet trilogy. After enduring the trials of this exceptional year, he wrote to let me know that he has finished translating the third volume â€” The Francesians. I have had a look at it and, as with the first two, it appears to be well done. The layout is good. The modifications to the cover are good. The front matter is better than the original. However, since I canâ€™t read Spanish I canâ€™t say anything about the translation itself. I ran the Green Comet translation â€” Cometa Verde â€” through a translator to see how it looked back in English, and found it to be quite different from the original. That makes sense when I think about it.
Given that, I would really appreciate it if any of you who can read Spanish would download Los Francesianos and let the rest of us know what you think.
That completes the translation of the trilogy into Spanish. Please help me thank David for his hard work. It gives me a good feeling to know that these books will be accessible by another large group of people. Here are the three books:
Please download them and let David know how good you think they are.
