    Technically wise (the space used and such), the board cann't create a group of artists to have their works in the other languages but english? In poetry it may be interesting to see the work in the original language after all, it even may help to create threads with those authors and a few members may start to translate one or another poem for the english only readers and the forum itself would with time develop a nice database ?

    I love Baudelaire's poetry too (well, most of his poems anyways) but all the official translations that I've read so far don't measure up to the original .

    Well, not really. Fleursdumal.org owns copyright to their website content and copyright to the English translations:

    "Fleursdumal.org contains every poem of each edition of Les Fleurs du mal, together with multiple English translations — most of which are exclusive to this site and are now available in digital form for the first time ever.
