Thomas Larque <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> asks,

>does anybody know anything about Croatian
>translations of Shakespeare, and "Hamlet" in particular?

I don't speak Croatian myself, so I can't judge the quality of the
translations. But I have started to "collect" translations and
translators of Shakespeare on:
[http://www.unibas.ch/shine/translators.htm],

The link for the Croatian page is:
[http://www.unibas.ch/shine/translatorscroatian.htm].

The only translator of Hamlet I found is Milan Bogdanovic.

I'd be grateful for more contributions (also in other languages)

Though I can't help Thomas Larque on this matter, his request reminded
me of something interesting--in Georgia (Caucasus), Shakespeare is so
popular that many people bear Shakespearean names, especially from the
tragedies: Othello and Hamlet are particularly popular men's names. I'm
not sure if Georgians know WS' plays in their own language or in
Russian, however: Russian friends have told me there's a particularly
fine translation of most of the plays in that language (written if
memory does not fail me, by Boris Pasternak??).  Indeed, one Russian
told me that he thought Shakespeare's spirit came over much better in
Russian than English!
