MASOLIT or LITMOS?
Well, here's one difference between the old Hebrew translation of Master and Margarita and the new one. The new one (by Kriksonov) gives the name of the literary association headed by Misha Berlioz as MASOLIT, explaining it is a contraction of Moscow and Literature, in Russian. The old translation (by A. R.) renders it LITMOS.

What is the original Russian name, and what do you (O speakers of that tongue) think about these two translations, on this point?

Current Mood: Actually troubled by this
Current Music: Georges Brassens
