I cannot believe that you would consider canceling a subscription because
of the alleged poor English translations, especially if this magazine is
the only African publication. Is there some deeper reason that you would
abandon it so quickly?

Is there some way that you/somone could help to IMPROVE the translations?
Before you throw out the baby with the wash water, can you offer
constructive criticism? Assistance?

I think this lively discussion is getting to the editors, and perhaps the
translations will improve. Also several have written me for the
subscription form. So perhaps, despite the bombardment I've taken, this set
of postings to the listserver, will serve some good....

Note: there are several other African film publications. We've listed them
here a while ago.
cheers, Steve Smith
