The Elegance of Concise Words


Lycurgus, the lawgiver of Sparta during the seventh century BC.

Licurgo is a word not much used in Spanish. Apart from referring to the lawgiver of Sparta around the 7th century BC, it is also a Spanish adjective that means clever, astute and skillful. If we join both meanings—whereas Lycurgus, according to Xenophon, was deeply committed to the legislation of his city, and he made that city a prominent one by not imitating what the other cities of that age did—, both the translator and the trainer should also be skillful and committed to the language, the assignment, and the customer; all of that with judgment. This is the philosophy of Licurgo Translations.
