That translations have limitations is a truism, however, students may not be aware of what those might be, and thus often use them without reservations, regardless of whether instructors permit or discourage this. A poem will serve to show how students can be sensitized to the issues by demonstrating the implications of performing and using translations. An exercise that participants can apply to texts of their choice to accomplish the same results will be outlined.
