Welcome to Translators' Pantheon

Welcome to our site, “The Retroversionists Hall of Fame”
There is an incredible abundance of excellent translators from other languages into Romanian. The list is long, and it contains some of the most famous Romanian writers: Anton Bacalbaşa, A.E. Baconski, Lucian Blaga, Ion Caraion, Nina Cassian, Dan Duţescu, George Călinescu , George Coşbuc, Nichifor Crainic, Ştefan Augustin Doinaş, Mircea Eliade, Mihai Eminescu, Dinu Flămând, Gala Galacion, fraţii Radu şi Şerban Greceanu, Radu Demetrescu Gyr, Şt. O. Iosif, Udrişte Năsturel, Miron Radu Praschivescu, Ion Pillat, Marin Preda, Ion Heliade Rădulescu, Radu Tudoran, Mircea Vulcănescu, etc, etc, etc...
However, when we think of retroversionists (an invented word in English!), by which we mean writers with a Romanian background who translated from Romanian into another language, the list is much shorter.
This site is dedicated to these brave men and women.
To make it into this Retroversionists Hall of Fame, a translator must have done an outstanding job of rendering a Romanian text into a foreign language, to the extent that the new version should read as an original piece of literature to the foreign reader.
The admission to this Hall of Fame will be granted only after a serious analysis, a subjective call no doubt, by the founding members of this site.
We welcome suggestions from men of letters, from publishers, and from the public at large for inclusion of new members in the Retroversionists Hall of Fame.

Sometimes, we can’t measure what we need, so we invent a proxy, something that’s much easier to measure and stands in as an approximation. TV advertisers, for example, could never tell which viewers would be impacted by an ad, so instead,
