    Thanks for that link with the works of Naxagoras Max. Do you plan to make also an English translation of Alchymia Denudata at a future time?

    Asuming you mean me (although the name is sam, not max) the answer is no.

    I inquired (being a novice myself) with his name-sake on a german forum and his answer was:

    Ich würde auch auf diesen Autor nicht allzu viel setzen, schon Kunkel nannte ihn einen elenden Betrüger .....
    which translated means: I would not count on this author too much, Kunkel already called him a cheat.

    we had an extended discussion about Kunkel and his credentials, long story short: NAX is not worth it.

    Yeah, I was referring to you Sam. My mistake with the name. Thanks for the answer.

    rebate

    there seems to be a way to get some % off the price at LULU using this link, although, being German, I do not entirely understand how this works:

    I anyone thinks it could work, we could have a sort of 'Translation Market'.

    People would post, for example, the languages they are able to faithfully translate (to and from).

    Or post a certain work they would very much like to have translated into a preferred language.

    Arrangements could then be made via PM (between the interested parties), and when translations are ready, available and found to be reliable - they could be publicly announced on the forum, and a fair energy-exchange platform could be established for other potentially interested individuals.

    Just an idea...

    Hi.

    How many people speaking the same language do you require to validate a translation ?

    One or two who seem trustworthy can do, but I suppose 3 would be safest...

    I can personally translate from German to English, but only if the German original is in modern Latin Alphabet (not German Script).

    I can also correct already made English translations from other languages, if the translator's English is not perfect, but good enough to get the content through.

    I don't know if this has been posted before, but I've found what I believe to be an English translation of the full version of "The Golden Chain of Homer" as well as several other hand-written translations of potentially important works. "A Collection of Alchemical Manuscripts" of Manly Palmer Hall.

    Here's the online reader link: http://archive.org/stream/manlypalme...ge/n0/mode/2up

    Here's the link to download the PDF if you like: http://archive.org/details/manlypalmerhabox18v5hall
    Still Searching.............

    I greatly appreciate translations and, have always admired people who work as professional translators. For someone like I who's first language is other than English, I can't help but wonder how accurate these translations are especially taking it into context that they're from other periods of dialect, expressions, etc.?
