Translate text from translation

Post by weitsicht » Sun Feb 04, 2018 9:30 pm

Hi,

assume there is a tibetan Buddhist text I have in English.
I'd like to translate this into German because it seems it hasn't been yet.

Would it be considered OK if I'd do so, I mean not knowing Tibetan hence not being able to check about deviations that would alter the words chosen then in German language?
Ho! All the possible appearances and existences of samsara and nirvana have the same source, yet two paths and two results arise as the magical display of awareness and unawareness.

You could, but you would need to have it checked by someone who knows Tibetan against Tibetan to make sure you do not deviate from the meaning.
