This primarily depends on their literary and linguistic skills and how they are able to include all of the qualities of the original works in their translations, providing an enjoyable reading experience whilst using the characteristic vocabulary and idioms of the language.
This requires a very high level of knowledge and understanding of the literary possibilities of a language.
