TRANSLATIONS DONE SPECIALLY FOR THIS SITE

Saturday 1 January 2005, by Ray

All of the many translations on this site – 485 at latest count [1] – are of texts free of copyright in the USA, Great Britain, Europe and elsewhere.

As translations are themselves subject to the 70-year rule (an author’s works are free of copyright 70 years after the last day of the year of their death) we have undertaken a considerable number of translations of major French, German and Russian texts [2] to enable them to be available on this site in on-line and e-book formats for English-language readers everywhere.



The details of these translations can be seen below.
