The history of translation of Buddhist texts from Sanskrit and Tibetan to western languages has been marked by the imposition of western conceptual thought upon Buddhist material. The result has been some distortion of the original genuine Buddhist message. This text explores the constraints that translators face and the steps required to address these constraints. Contributions to this compilation by scholars from India and throughout the world look at the various facets of the problems as experienced by them.
