La traducción si querer serlo es una especie de copia alterada, una empresa perdida de antemano, un resultado que se resigna a la medida de lo posible. En este caso ese desajuste, ese cierto malentendido es aquello que se encuentra, es la esencia poética del trabajo.

The translation ,unintentionally ,ends up being concieved as an altered copy, a lost cause from the very beginnning so to speak, where one has to conform to a distant version from the original. In this case this apparent disadjustment , this certain degree of misunderstanding is what is found, conform the poetic essence of the work.
