Here is an unusual and fascinating article on film translation by Mark
Schilling.  He gets to the rub midway through:  “But there is “an elephant
in the room,” Brown says. “One reason why the quality of translation here
can be slipshod even with very talented people doing it is they don’t get
paid enough to spend enough time.”

Check it out. The whole thing is worth reading.

Does any Japanese filmmaker care about translation as much as Soderbergh??
