Well he has to be given credit for doing the bulk work of the translation. I think unless you know some decent Nahuatl and are well versed in the philosophies and traditions,the translations will always be faulty. And of course it is impossible to translate the profound experience and ollin of Ometeotzin into a static description. I feel even your boy David Vasquez is a little off with some of his translations.
