Around the Web–Spanish translations

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

I’m always amazed and delighted when one of my books appears in a foreign language. I wonder how the translator managed to get all the elements of the story—the plot, the characters, and, in particular, the humor—from English into Russian or Japanese or French or whatever the language might be. I studied French in school, but I’ll be the first to admit I was never any good at it. I doubt I could translate a menu even if I was starving!

I’m excited that The Duchess of Love series is showing up in Spain now. Here’s a fun interview I did with blogger Laura Frias—it’s in English and Spanish. And here’s a review of Bedding Lord Ned in a Spanish newspaper. My friend who can read Spanish assures me the review is a good one ;).
