I can't really be said to have learned Old English just yet, thus the need for a translation.

My interest in any language can be summarized as originating from the shift in worldview necessary for comprehension, as well as from the desire for knowledge and recognition that translation alters meaning.

I can read French and some Russian and Irish Gaelic, am conversational but functionally illiterate in Japanese, and used to be fluent in Spanish but forgot a lot due to lack of practice.
