Hi Larisa. I don't want to just open this up to all translations immediately, but to do it in a controlled way.

The wiki will be different software where you can upload the original and the draft translation side by side, for discussion by a group.

However if you would like to upload just ONE poem with the existing translation, we could perhaps use that as a means of trying out what it might be like once the wiki is in place.

You must be willing for people to comment on the poem and on its translation. If you are, firstly you need to join this group, then go ahead and blog a poem and translation in the same blog, then, in <Profile for entry> dropdown menu, select Poetry in Translation Group. Then message me to let me know. But PLEASE don't expect immediate response!
Spasiba.

Oh, sorry! I didn't notice Blog entries by Poetry in Translation Group. But..., anyway, what about translations from Russian into English?

As I have migrated stuff from the old cross cultural poetry group to here, I add Winston's link on ghazals as a comment here.

I liked the poem very much - didn't know who had written it till I got to the end! Very engrossing! And moving too. No idea how good a translation it is cos I can't read french. But it read well to me. (And the whole thing is a great idea.) How about an audio of both versions? I think that would be a very interesting way to compare them.
