Venugopalan Ittekot

My favorite translator. His translations of the Discworld books are lyrical; he’s possessed of a magical ability to translate British wit. To transmute puns is hard enough, given the vast difference in vocabulary options, but Ittekot can also brilliantly relate Pratchett’s humour to Dutch culture.
