it's tiny......it is basically an article spread over the pages of a very (very [very]) small book. there are no "revelations", but it's a collection of amusing episodes and quotes regarding transcreation (as opposed to "simple" translation). an entertaining reading probably not worth the price: would you pay for reading a light article, say, on a blog?...

I'm in the translation world and I've come across one or two of the examples given, however there's still a lot of new material especially for a few quid! (I love the Motorola Q phone when translated badly into French - 'Mon Q')

Admittedly, a fairly specialist subject but for anyone needing to get to grips with creative translation, this little book provides some interesting snippets of information.

A great little book for helping people really see and understand what cultural difference means and the pitfalls you can all too easily fall into.

was hoping for some really funny anecdotes, more of a sales pitch for the mother tongue agency and the importance of transcreation i thought.
