By Michael Carasik

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2008

Carasik shares with the readers his thoughts on the role of translators and his own experience as editor of the English translation of the Commentatorsâ?? Bible Series. As the translator stands between the original text and the reader, the degree of the translatorâ??s transparency varies. Carasik shares his own technique creating a reading experience where the translation vanishes, bringing the reader closer to the original text.
