Argentina, Spain: Blogs and Translation

Martin Varsavsky, an Argentinean living in Spain, explains why he has six blogs in two different languages. He then adds, “I rarely translate my blogs. I don´t believe in translation. I believe in cultures and I say raise different issues in different languages; something that frequently annoys my Spanish readers many of whom believe everything can be translated.”
