Well, it's more or less right except that so far, I've only seen each
individual script once, for the first translation. I suppose Egmont's
edits are in English (which I believe Rota can read), and maybe somebody
in the office (like Byron Erickson) does the final polish/edit to avoid
yet another trip across the Atlantic.

I've done six languages: German, Dutch, French, Danish, Swedish, and
Italian into English. It's amazing what you can do with a dictionary...
(fortunately, Disney comics aren't exactly rocket science).
