Robin Turner said:I’ve just scanned through all 368 articles on this blog. Saved the ones that had anything to do with the C’s (Transcripts, articles, the Wave) and leaving the rest.
Approximately how many pages (printed out) do his translations take up? How much of it is the raw transcripts, and how much is The Wave?
Robin Turner said:With that in mind, I don’t think it would be helpful to write commentaries on his translation of the transcripts, but, rather, to write commentaries on his translation of the Wave materials.
If his raw transcripts are obviously badly translated, then it would help if you could point that out nevertheless, even if they are the raw transcripts. Same for The Wave materials. Give lies what they are ask for: truth.
Robin Turner said:If I write commentaries on his translations of the transcripts by themselves, then wouldn’t I, myself, also be “reading the Cassiopaean transcripts on their own, outside of the context provided by Laura's work?”
It depends. If you are able to spot some interpretation mistakes in this guy's translations, that already shows that you are more careful than him. Which of Laura's books have you read so far?
Robin Turner said:Besides, how can I be the judge of the correct interpretation of the C’s transcripts?
Only if you have a good and proven 'track record'. Ideally the translations into Chinese (as with all other languages) are a group effort. Intense networking (asking questions) would help, here in the forum, and within a specially created translation group. This way, if an error creeps in somewhere, two or more persons can mutually correct themselves (called "proofreading"). Is anyone else out there who speaks Chinese and English and would be willing to help?
Robin Turner said:Next I will be working on the introduction of the blog, where I will make my position on these crystal clear. Any suggestions/support would be appreciated (Thanks Data and Altair).
Instead of correcting ALL his mistakes (depends on how much he translated), maybe you just take a couple of his most severe mistakes and give it as an example what the C's meant by "much opportunity for corruption".
