I'll second that, for the Norwegian translators.

I think comics is a greater challenge for translators than plain text. You are absolutely bound by the drawing, and cannot adapt the story to local culture, unless you make a completely new story to match the picutres. One Norwegian translator of Peanuts told that for about a third of the strips, there was no way to use the original text directly translated; he had to make up something new.

Also with regular comic strips, the translator do not know the entire story - it is expanded every day or week. Like Woodstock in the Peanuts: When it appeared first time and given a Norwegian name, there was no indication of the sex of the bird. The translator had to make a guess, and for several years, the bird was female, util a new original strip revealed that Woodstock is male. So the translator would either have to add some sex change operation strip for Woodstock Smile | :) or invent some new story whenever his sex was significant (which is what the translator chose to do).
