Translation FAQ

Both Sarah and The Heart is Deceitful Above All Things have been translated into a number of different languages.  Good friendships have developed with many of the translators through their care and concern in understanding the southern slang and dialect found through JT’s works.

To aid others in their profession, their past questions and JT’s answers follow.  We tried to group all the questions consecutively, by page number.  Therefore, there may be duplicate questions if more than one translator asked about the same phrase.  We think you’ll appreciate seeing different folks’ interpretations and JT’s answers back.

Thanks so much to all the translators for taking the time to ensure their translation was as accurate as could be.  We raise our hillbilly pop in your direction!!
