This discussion is at the heart of my concern that translating from one
culture to another not only loses a lot in the conversion, but hides the beauty
or clarity of the original text. It is very frustrating to read an early
translation of Vygotsky and think you are beginning to understand the relevance of
his thinking to the way I teach only to get a hold of a later translation
and wonder which is better? While it may slow down the reading and take many
more pages, we may need to have more explanation of the difference of the
meaning of the Russian word and the English word that is used to translate it.
