    It isn't the formatting that is concerning but instead knowing how much creative license was applied. The words I underlined are troublesome, in my opinion, because it was not based on the true translation but instead on someone's interpretation.

    The following transcript is based on an interpretation of
    the trial testimony of Amanda Knox done by Thoughtful from video
    and audio recordings and posted on perugiamurderfile.org.
    References to video and audio sources, and some descriptive
    material has been eliminated, and a few words have been
    translated differently.

    I get it. I believe that it was very difficult to translate the Massei Report. There is so much innuendo in the Italian language that it's impossible to translate all of the meaning. If the Massei Report and all translations of the Italian documents related to the trial for the murder of Meredith Kercher have to be thrown out, so be it. We will have nothing left but US media reports. The court transcripts were translated by the same people that have translated all of the documents. Oddly, neither Knox nor Sollecito have complained that they were translated incorrectly.

    Hopefully one of the locals that claims to be fluent in Italian can sort it out.

    Before we toss all the translations out the window, could we have an example of where the translations are incorrect?
    We would have to be fluent in Italian to know that, wouldn't we? Where would examples be found?

    Furthermore, with Knox purchasing the $20 upgrade on wordpress, to get the knox web name, the account was taken over by another branch of wordpress.

    Did Knox contribute to the funds that she linked on her page?
    if i have the correct page, it doesn't look like it would cost anything to request the link be removed -- if one can prove ownership of disputed link:

    otto, how would i know that? if amanda doesn't say or blog about a contribution to the MK fund, she'd be bashed for being selfish and uncaring. if she did say or blog she did contribute, she'd be called out for bragging or told she's only trying to hide her guilt.

    like another poster said today, damned if she does and damned if she doesn't.

    I don't know, but I'm assuming that whomever is objecting to the quality of the translation can provide at least one example, referencing a video segment, of an incorrect translation. Knox and Sollecito have been out of prison for a few years and written books. Neither has even remarked that any of the translations are incorrect.

    Everything from the Massei Report on is translated by the same group of people ... and the report before that as well, I believe. If the transcripts are incorrect, then all of it must be incorrect.
