Yeah. Everyone knows that translating's just a matter of reading 
the book then writing it out again. (Backwards, in the case of 
Hebrew). That's why translators don't have to get paid...

(Although there is a literary award in Ireland that rewards the author 
and translator equally if the winning title has been translated into 
English, that's a bit of a novelty and not really on.)
