Re: RIP Albert Uderzo

Quote:
Yes, indeed- as most here on EF would have read Asterix in English and not the original French. Bubble sounds, as in not words, but sounds, in a cartoon put in a bubble! 'Paf' to be translated into 'slap' - most people don't realise sounds linked to actions are very different in different languages. Same for animals. Mooh in English for a cow, but 'meuh' in French. So yes, seeing the news about Uderzo reminded me of the days I helped Derek with translating Asterix into English and the long discussions we had.
Thank you for clarifying.
