My friend [livejournal.com profile] tahnan, a linguist, gets understandably upset when people talk about "untranslatable" words. And yet, I find myself wondering (prompted by [livejournal.com profile] gnomi's link yesterday):

How does one translate the TV show title "Srugim"? I mean, would you watch a show called "Knitteds?" (Well, yes, many of you would, but you'd expect Elizabeth Zimmermann to be hosting.)
