>> Besides, I'm pretty sure that that's equation the translators wanted to avoid from the start, and the idea of it being a possible pun down the line isn't enough to keep the transliteration that "true." LMB was being published by AST in Russia long before Memory came out, IIRC (haha).>>
I know translation is a headache. I do about six hours of it a month to stay in proficiency. (And my papers continue to come back bleeding at me...) Speaking of which, I need to find something new to torture myself with...
Although I was reading on one of the sites related to the Russian publishing that using the "For" was a little problem in "Cetaganda" with Vorob'yev, which is actually a real Russian name. (I forget where I read it, exactly.)
