It’s a familiar phrase — but what actually is lost in translation? What does a good translator privilege: literal meaning, connotation, cultural significance, wordplay, poetry or musicality? What can she discard first? What must she insist on keeping? What are some of the best translations of the literature of the fantastic? What makes them so fantastische, harika, and downright kediegwu?
