Author

snip>
(PRWEB) - LOS ANGELES, CA
November 1, 2005 --

Guinness World Records has officially recognized L. Ron Hubbard as the
world’s most translated author.

The new world record, officially verified as 65 languages, exceeds the
previous record of 51 languages set in 1997 by American author Sidney
Sheldon. It also tops the unofficial count of 63 for “Harry Potter”
novelist J. K. Rowling and the 64 languages translated for “The Diary
of a Young Girl” by Dutch teenager Anne Frank.

Guinness, a household name in accrediting and presenting world
records, issued its official world record verification certificate
that reads: “The most translated author in the world is L. Ron Hubbard
(USA). His works have been translated into 65 languages as of October
2005.“

The certificate was presented to Author Services, Inc., Los Angeles,
the literary agency that licenses all of Mr. Hubbard’s works
internationally. The presentation was made by Alistair Burtenshaw,
director of the London Book Fair, one of the world’s largest trade
book conventions.

“L. Ron Hubbard is a powerful force whose works encompass many fields
and genres from Dianetics, his all time bestseller on the mind, to his
epic science fiction triumph Battlefield Earth,“ Burtenshaw said
during the presentation.

The languages in which books by L. Ron Hubbard have been translated
include Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Azeri, Basque, Belo
Russian, Bengali, Brazilian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech,
Danish, Dari-Farsi, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French, Georgian,
German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian,
Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Kazakh, Korean, Kyrgyz, Latvian,
Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malayalam, Mexican, Mongolian, Nepalese,
Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Serbian,
Sinhalese, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog,
Taiwanese, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Uzbek, Vietnamese,
Xhosa and Zulu.

“We keep making L. Ron Hubbard’s works available to publishers
everywhere so we expect to continue breaking this record,” said Hugh
Wilhere, spokesperson for Author Services. “L. Ron Hubbard’s books are
bestsellers in many countries and the demand for them keeps growing as
word of mouth continues to spread from reader to reader.”

With a professional career spanning half a century and with over 200
million of his fiction and non-fiction works in circulation in 156
countries, L. Ron Hubbard, Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, is
among the most influential and widely-read authors of our time.

Ahh, nothing like pumping 'translation' numbers by having a host of
cheap labor droids push stats-over-the-top 'by doctrine' targets to a
'win' giving scientology the 'translation' brass ring though my
naivety 'til this moment didn't believe that the GBOR could be
'bought'....

I was once in the GBOR as playing the fastest guitar lick in the
world: 9,000 notes in 20 seconds. Alvin Lee, of '10 Years After'
fame, couldn't even top my sonic blur with his Woodstock rendition of
"Goin' Home", though he did log an astounding 247,000 notes by the end
of that piece to beat The Who at "sex, drugs&R&R" stats that were
important back then but now just charted as an excel hippie database
at UC Berkeley run by subterranean geeks using cracked versions of
Windows '95 tweaked to outperform T1 trunks in speed, living in
concrete tunnels under the University like unemployed rats...

If not a yippie 'Boomer', but a 'gen y' tike scratching his/her head
in bewilderment because of the belief that your mind is controlled by
'the matrix', you won't understand the above paragraph on "Goin' Home"
unless you suffer from a case of the 1968 Chicago Convention Blues.
Having Ram Dass' books that give mention to Keith Henson in the
footnotes along with a San Francisco 'pad' furnished with paisley
window curtains while also having the sound of the Grateful Dead fill
the Allan Watts void in one's candle lit bathroom is a must to be
considered true Boomer fare. Plus, if you x/y tikes can sing, not just
know, the lyrics to Donovan's "Mellow Yellow", you're precipitously
close to being called a member of 'The Weathermen' ready for a kick
ass beating outside the Chicago Convention Hall. David Rice is a
diamond-meritorious member of the first order in Boomerdom and he
didn't even have to shell out 3.6 mil like some celebrities we know.
David still carry's the paisley banner high, imo, while riding his
horse through uncharted cricks, acting as a Don Quixote sentry looking
over Indian arrowhead archeological sites, when his brother isn't
dragging him through 'Xenu's tunnel' near the San Gabriel mountains..
I wonder if David's a vegan as well and can tolerate the taste of
'vegan pizza' that's so popular with the San Jose anemia crowd tasting
like cardboard packing topped with cold tofu giving a whole new
meaning to grass snail toppings. Take that kind of meatless pizza to
little Italy as a 'progressive restaurant' and you'll get whacked for
a culinary infraction against the family. Plenty of sausages please,
and don't hold back on the parmesan heart attack. Pour it on while
listening to Pavarotti sing 'Tosca' and loosen your belt to size 52
'hole' extending long hard belches from your 'culturally sensitive'
stomach to please the Mama Don who is dressed in mourners black. Who
knows, Joe Pesci might drop in to give one of his 'good fella' slaps
on the back during a matraD rendition of a Cosa Nostra hug..

All Baby Boomers remember Alvin Lees' "finger acrobatics" at
Woodstock, unless they've had a 'Boomer stroke', which is increasing
in number, sorry to say. Just ask fill scott, the meteorologist. He's
on the cusp as an unwilling partner who is still trying to stay young
at the dragstrip sliding nevertheless through times turnstile which we
all must face by Chronos's decree...

I have a secret for all Baby Boomers if they haven't realized it
already. Generation X and Y can't *wait* until we're all dead, no
matter what they say otherwise. It's a fact. They hate our guts as an
age group, with its implications of political power, no matter one's
political affiliation or persuasion as a Boomer. Just ask henri, but
he probably won't fess up as a rep for his generation. Most of you
Boomer's probably think that 'flaming' between ARS critics has
*strictly* to do with differences of opinion. Think again.

Mexican :)

That's too funny. Surely it's a piece for internal use only?
Like Freedom Magazine, perhaps. The byline "prweb" sounds official!

That's got to be one of very few audiences credulous enough to lap this
stuff up without question. Others might be inclined to contact the
Guinness people and ask them if Mexican is a distinct language?

In publishing, it is. All the above (Portuguese/Brazilian,
Serbian/Croatian, and Castillian/Mexican/South American Spanish) are
discrete language variations where translation is concerned. A few
poetry books are published in Basque, Catalan and even the French
provincial language Occitan. There's also Canadian and Creole French
for that matter, plus some weird African flavors. Plus Afrikaans, which
is a variant of Dutch.

These are mainly dialects. Books are also edited into British and
American English to replace "boot" with "trunk" when describing
Bentleys, and insert all those extra U's in words like "humour." Even
though people fluent in a given language can generally read any
flavour, separate editions do vary.

Of course, the translations of Hubbard's books are mostly at least as
incomrehensible as the original American English versions. That's what
comes of using slave labour.

"Publishing" isn't the same thing as "translation". British and American
English are treated as different markets by publishers, that doesn't make
them into distinct languages in any meaningful sense. (I also don't think
any such variations can be called discrete, I think they're continuous, but
nevermind.) One of the Harry Potter books was published under a different
title in the US and in the rest of the world (because Americans were
considered too stupid to understand the word "philosopher"), that doesn't
mean it was translated.

provincial language Occitan.
A strange mishmash of examples. Catalan is the official language of
Catalonia, and not just "a few poetry books" are published in it, it is the
language of education, the press and the government. Basque is most
definitely a language distinct from any other, it's an isolate unrelated to
any other documented language, living or dead (and the only ergative
language spoken in Europe). It also has official status in the Basque
Country.

for that matter, plus some weird African flavors. Plus Afrikaans, which

These are mainly dialects.
Ay, there's the rub. There is no meaningful distinction that can be drawn
between "languages" on the one hand, and "dialects" on the other. I had a
major dustup with a poster in another newsgroup a while back just because
I'd dared to point out that Afrikaans is a variant of Dutch, and only
considered a distinct language because of historical and political reasons
(if South Africa had become a Dutch colony instead of a British one, nobody
would ever have thought of calling the local Dutch dialects a different
language.) The best definition of the difference that any linguist has ever
come up with is still Max Weinreich's classic: "A language is a dialect
with an army and a navy". There are languages that are clearly one and the
same to outsiders, but which the people speaking them insist are distinct
(such as Danish and Norwegian, or Czech and Slovak, or Hindi and Urdu, and
perhaps these days Serbo-Croat). And there are languages that are clearly
distinct but considered variants of one language for political reasons,
such as Mandarin and Kantonese.

Of course, the translations of Hubbard's books are mostly at least as
incomrehensible as the original American English versions. That's what
comes of using slave labour.
On the contrary. It's the slave labour that ensures that all translations
of Hubbard's work are splendid, and do full justice to the qualities of
the original.

Ridicule, even such hyper-known "works" of that criminal have never bneen
translated in one language; this is particularly true of the ditcionaries.

I'll protest as well against the fact that this author is not the author of a
large part of his books.

Guiness people have been lured by crime cultists.

world: 9,000 notes in 20 seconds. Alvin Lee, of '10 Years After'
fame, couldn't even top my sonic blur with his Woodstock rendition of
"Goin' Home", though he did log an astounding 247,000 notes by the end
of that piece to beat The Who at "sex, drugs&R&R" stats that were
important back then but now just charted as an excel hippie database
at UC Berkeley run by subterranean geeks using cracked versions of
Windows '95 tweaked to outperform T1 trunks in speed, living in
concrete tunnels under the University like unemployed rats...
If not a yippie 'Boomer', but a 'gen y' tike scratching his/her head
in bewilderment because of the belief that your mind is controlled by
'the matrix', you won't understand the above paragraph on "Goin' Home"
unless you suffer from a case of the 1968 Chicago Convention Blues.
Having Ram Dass' books that give mention to Keith Henson in the
footnotes along with a San Francisco 'pad' furnished with paisley
window curtains while also having the sound of the Grateful Dead fill
the Allan Watts void in one's candle lit bathroom is a must to be
considered true Boomer fare. Plus, if you x/y tikes can sing, not just
know, the lyrics to Donovan's "Mellow Yellow", you're precipitously
close to being called a member of 'The Weathermen' ready for a kick
ass beating outside the Chicago Convention Hall. David Rice is a
diamond-meritorious member of the first order in Boomerdom and he
didn't even have to shell out 3.6 mil like some celebrities we know.
David still carry's the paisley banner high, imo, while riding his
horse through uncharted cricks, acting as a Don Quixote sentry looking
over Indian arrowhead archeological sites, when his brother isn't
dragging him through 'Xenu's tunnel' near the San Gabriel mountains..
I wonder if David's a vegan as well and can tolerate the taste of
'vegan pizza' that's so popular with the San Jose anemia crowd tasting
like cardboard packing topped with cold tofu giving a whole new
meaning to grass snail toppings. Take that kind of meatless pizza to
little Italy as a 'progressive restaurant' and you'll get whacked for
a culinary infraction against the family. Plenty of sausages please,
and don't hold back on the parmesan heart attack. Pour it on while
listening to Pavarotti sing 'Tosca' and loosen your belt to size 52
'hole' extending long hard belches from your 'culturally sensitive'
stomach to please the Mama Don who is dressed in mourners black. Who
knows, Joe Pesci might drop in to give one of his 'good fella' slaps
on the back during a matraD rendition of a Cosa Nostra hug..
All Baby Boomers remember Alvin Lees' "finger acrobatics" at
Woodstock, unless they've had a 'Boomer stroke', which is increasing
in number, sorry to say. Just ask fill scott, the meteorologist. He's
on the cusp as an unwilling partner who is still trying to stay young
at the dragstrip sliding nevertheless through times turnstile which we
all must face by Chronos's decree...
I have a secret for all Baby Boomers if they haven't realized it
already. Generation X and Y can't *wait* until we're all dead, no
matter what they say otherwise. It's a fact. They hate our guts as an
age group, with its implications of political power, no matter one's
political affiliation or persuasion as a Boomer. Just ask henri, but
he probably won't fess up as a rep for his generation. Most of you
Boomer's probably think that 'flaming' between ARS critics has
*strictly* to do with differences of opinion. Think again.

Ah, PRWEB... WebTV for the truth-challenged.

Funny how Guinness still says it's Sidney Sheldon, ain't it?

Guinness World Records Names L. Ron Hubbard as World's Most Translated
Author
snip>
(PRWEB) - LOS ANGELES, CA
November 1, 2005 --
Guinness World Records has officially recognized L. Ron Hubbard as the
world's most translated author.
The new world record, officially verified as 65 languages, exceeds the
previous record of 51 languages set in 1997 by American author Sidney
Sheldon. It also tops the unofficial count of 63 for "Harry Potter"
novelist J. K. Rowling and the 64 languages translated for "The Diary
of a Young Girl" by Dutch teenager Anne Frank.
Guinness, a household name in accrediting and presenting world
records, issued its official world record verification certificate
that reads: "The most translated author in the world is L. Ron Hubbard
(USA). His works have been translated into 65 languages as of October
2005."
The certificate was presented to Author Services, Inc., Los Angeles,
the literary agency that licenses all of Mr. Hubbard's works
internationally. The presentation was made by Alistair Burtenshaw,
director of the London Book Fair, one of the world's largest trade
book conventions.
"L. Ron Hubbard is a powerful force whose works encompass many fields
and genres from Dianetics, his all time bestseller on the mind, to his
epic science fiction triumph Battlefield Earth," Burtenshaw said
during the presentation.
The languages in which books by L. Ron Hubbard have been translated
include Afrikaans, Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Azeri, Basque, Belo
Russian, Bengali, Brazilian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech,
Danish, Dari-Farsi, Dutch, Estonian, Farsi, Finnish, French, Georgian,
German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indonesian,
Italian, Japanese, Kannada, Kazakh, Korean, Kyrgyz, Latvian,
Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malayalam, Mexican, Mongolian, Nepalese,
Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Serbian,
Sinhalese, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tagalog,
Taiwanese, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Uzbek, Vietnamese,
Xhosa and Zulu.
"We keep making L. Ron Hubbard's works available to publishers
everywhere so we expect to continue breaking this record," said Hugh
Wilhere, spokesperson for Author Services. "L. Ron Hubbard's books are
bestsellers in many countries and the demand for them keeps growing as
word of mouth continues to spread from reader to reader."
With a professional career spanning half a century and with over 200
million of his fiction and non-fiction works in circulation in 156
countries, L. Ron Hubbard, Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, is
among the most influential and widely-read authors of our time.

Ahh, nothing like pumping 'translation' numbers by having a host of
cheap labor droids push stats-over-the-top 'by doctrine' targets to a
'win' giving scientology the 'translation' brass ring though my

ah well ... Scientology .... it's about quantity not quality

I don't think that the *quality* of the translation was taken into
account by Guinness ....
