i went to pasig city last week and a small stall got my attention. there's a paper posted on the glass door which says they are selling the filipino version of the controversial novel 50 shades of grey. i wasn't ale to check the actual copy of the novel but i heard that there's also twilight and hunger games filipino version ion the market. i'm not against these filipino versions. i'm just thinking there may be things that would be "lost in translation".

Hi there!!! This sure seemed interesting and i would like to be able to know first who translated this actually see if it is an official and approved translated version... otherwise as you have said so yourself there could be some issues or items that could be lost. It happens all the time right?

my cousin is a freshman high school student in lcis and i had to fetch him that day because her aunt went to the province. it's not nbs near the church. it's actually just a small stall located near the male exit of students in lcis going to the city hall.

There will certainly be things that will be lost int translation. I have seen a translation of twilight and it was horrendous. it was a literal translation and the alternator probably just translate it word by word and didn't bother with the context. besides, I think there will be sum words which you cannot replace in a language. English is very flexible in that, I don't how the Filipino version will be. I haven't read it really because it annoys the heck out of me. I never liked those books anyway.

if they dont want the translation to be awful,it must not be literal. I am sure it can be pulled off with the right hands. Precious hearts have a good reputation, so I guess they wont mess up. I have some of my works published there before.... (I wont tell you my pseudonym.....) Their books actually have lots of lovescenes, so I think they might be able to translate 50 shades of weirdporn.

I Am an avid reader and I was giving 50 shades of grey as a Christmas present I read the 3 books and I would say interesting? not really! at my age I Am not surprised at any thing!but I must say there is not story line in a way if you don't read the book you are not missing any thing really[except a cool shower in between chapters]I just wonder how it would sound translated into Spanish! or any other language for that matter!

Wow! Thats cool! I hope they do not translate word by word because that would be funny. I am worried too that it would have effect on the story by translating it. I haven't red the fifty shades of grey but I really love to read it.. I hope I have a friend who will lend it to me..
