Hi Donna,
 
    I would do as you suggest, and  correct font issues, but leave the
period orthography intact.  This seems best to me.

Hi all,

 

I'm working on The Lady in Blue by Javier Sierra.  At the end of the book is
a document written in old Spanish.  Some of the "abnormalities" are standard
orthographic conventions of the period, things like using the letter u where
in modern Spanish there would be a V.  others are the result of the font.
So, for instance,  the letter S looks like an F.  This also is typical of
period texts.  My question: Should I correct/modernize it, or should I leave
it?  One option would be to correct font issues, but leave the period
orthography intact.   There is an English translation following the Spanish
text.

 

I appreciate any input.

 

Thanks,

Donna
