Translators have to prove to themselves as to others that they are in control of what they do; that they do not just translate well because they have a “flair” for translation, but rather because, like other professionals, they have made a conscious effort to understand various aspects of their work.

Translation is like a women: if she is faithful, she is not beautiful; if she is beautiful, she is not faithful.
Russian Proverb
