← Translations of my books

We have both the original and the Finnish translation of the God Delusion in our house. I read it in English, and out of curiosity checked how the translation fared. I read a few chapters in Finnish and am happy to state in my opinion the translation seems superb. You get a good sense of the original style, and there's a great flow to the text, so nothing seems to be lost in translation.

I also read Dennet's "Breaking the Spell" with the same person translating, and I swear I could hear Dennet's voice speaking Finnish.
