I'm new to the community... I thought to get myself in I'd ask a question of everyone. Who is your favorite translator? I'm not sure who I  have Crime and Punishment by [I don't have the copy lying around] but I just finished The Brothers Karamazov translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, and I really loved the version. I tried another version from my local library months ago, and I wanted to die. It was so hard to get through... this version was clean, and elegant. It didn't feel like it was written for a dumby, but it wasn't impossible either. And all of the notes on the text were very nice, and helpful.

What about everyone else?
