Certainly, many problems are likely to occur when rendering old languages into English. This is especially true of those languages that are no longer currently in use and especially true of those that has been completely forgotten. Some aspects of translation, such as accuracy or the effort to preserve the originality of source language (SL) meaning when rendering into target language (TL), be it either old or modern language, has always been difficult and problematic.
