I sincerely hope not. :) The US-English edition list of errors is quite short even after 50,000+ eyes have looked at it.

I had no hand in the translation at all, FWIW. It's my understanding that the translation rights are purchased overseas and done in a completely separate environment from the original publishing (IANA Publisher). The foreign translation people have sent me some editions after the fact as a courtesy (Dutch, Chinese, Italian). The Russian and French versions I had to track down myself.

    Well, in case you make a new edition and they need someone to proofread the new Dutch translation, you can drop my name... I'm wondering whether the translators know any Perl themselves or whether they let the book proofread by any Perl programmer.
