 St. Jerome: The Perils of a Bible Translator - September 1997 Issue of St. Anthony Messenger Magazine Online

Jerome believed that a good translator will give the new language equal weight with the original and will try to make the translation equivalent to the original not just in meaning but also in quality of style.
