Sharpe's Tiger in German

Post by Macpy » Fri May 02, 2008 7:31 pm

Maybe its old news for us Germans here but I was just browsing through Amazon and I was very surprised to see this here:
http://www.amazon.de/Sharpes-Feuerprobe ... 344&sr=1-1

"Sharpes Tiger" is out in German, called "Sharpe's Feuerprobe". :shock:
Looks like we are going to get the Sharpe books translated in German sooner or later! I think I am going to order this book to read it in my own language! :cheer: Research reason only of course! :whistle:

Ah, Macpy, I hope the German translation will be MUCH beter than the Czech one! About a half year ago I discovered two Sharpe books here - Tiger and Fortress - in a hard cover, nicely equipped - well, I went to have a closer look. Ha. It only "walked around" the real Sharpe, so to speak... Pity.And horrible. Of course, no other volumes have appeared since then. And still I seem to be a lonely "real" Sharpe fan here...
So good luck! :cheer:

Czechmade, maybe you can contact the Czech publishers and offer to do any future translations for them. Tell them you have a true "feeling" for the work and a good "grasp" of the subject matter. :oops: :lol: But seriously I'm sure you could do a much better job than whoever they had hired.

Hope its a good translation...I mean I will be able to compare! But as I heard they will bring out one German translation once a year...does that mean we will have them all translated in 21 years?! :shock:
:agree: with amelia, offer your publisher your own translation, so you might get more people interested in Sharpe once everybody is able to read the translated version!!!!

Well, I have tried to convince one crazy publisher but he fell in love in his late 40s and lost his witts...giggle...and others didn´t answer, have got their Rosamunde Pilcher, no offense intended.
By the way, you really overestimate me - however I would do it with my heart full of love - and with good knowledge of history ( I hope).
Thank you, you are very kind! :shots:
