What follows are portions of a letter with my comments related to maintaining the accuracy of original works when translating them into other languages.
One thing I noticed in your translation is that you translated this:
Dear Govinda Maharaja,
Dear Srila Govinda Maharaja,
In doing so, you added “Srila” which was not in the original letter.
By posting these letters I am trying to present a historical record which must be as accurate and as authentic as possible. If we make changes to these documents to suit current tastes, opinions, or for any other reason, it may be seen as an improvement over the original, but it is a distortion of the facts, the history and, possibly, the truth.
When these distortions or misrepresentations are discovered, we will lose credibility. It
