One reviewer commented that the authors have "done a great job of the translation of the Latin and German into English.
That is, not a half-hearted, hedging-bets literal translation, but one that reads as modern English. The authors also worked closely with the publisher to ensure that the page layouts suit the practical needs of both the martial artist and the scholar.
Polearms of Paulus Hector Mair
I'm a martial artist, not a bibliophile; I don't want a coffee table volume, I want a usable treatise. The original text is included along with the English translation, and all arranged to minimize page-turning. In all, an excellent job. As one scholar remarked, the "ability to see the three languages together is very valuable, especially for any others who may be interested in taking a crack at the rest of the Mair.
Polearms and Staves
I also applaud [the authors'] decision to include the literal translations in the back of the book, so one can easily check the translation itself. An excellent effort, and very well done! The format and layout were simple and well done," wrote another. In addition to literal translations of the Latin and German texts of Mair's Opus , the Appendices include concise glossaries, a register, and full bibliography.
