Unofficial Russian Translation of “Pro .NET Performance”

A couple of months ago it has come to my attention that a certain Russian publisher is selling a Russian translation of “Pro .NET Performance”. The book seems reasonably popular, and at the recent DotNext conferences in Moscow and St. Petersburg I was even asked to sign it a couple of times.

I just wanted to let you know that I have nothing to do with this translation. As far as I’m aware, Apress (the book’s publisher) doesn’t know about it. I certainly didn’t know about it, and I didn’t approve the translation itself. They even got the authors’ names on the book cover wrong! The Russian spelling of my last name is Гольдштейн and Ido’s is Флато.

In fact, even though I don’t have the book in front of me, I know that it contains inaccuracies introduced in the translation process. This can be very frustrating for anyone reading the book, and of course is very frustrating for me as well.

To summarize, if you’d like to read the book, I strongly recommend that you purchase the original English version, which I can vouch for. If you have the Russian translation, and encounter a grave error or just a small inaccuracy, please don’t hesitate to ask me personally and I’ll try to explain the original intent. You can get in touch on Twitter or through this blog.

Андрей Акиньшин обратил моё внимание на то, что моя книга “Pro .NET Performance” переведена на русский язык. К сожалению, меня не поставили в известность о существовании этого перевода. Насколько я знаю, издательство Apress также не связано с этим переводом, который содержит неточности и даже ошибки, появившиеся в процессе перевода. Рекомендую читателям приобретать оригинальный экземпляр на английском языке.
