Each volume has a separate translator (Lydia Davis, James Grieve, Mark Treharne, John Sturrock, Carol Clark and Peter Collier, & Ian Patterson). The first new translation into English since Scott Moncreiff's original version sounds as if it might have been produced by a committee but is actually a triumph. See for yourself.
