Thanks for that, it's really interesting. I'm teaching in Italy at the moment and considering looking at Catcher with my kids, and I was wondering what it would be called over here. Funny how people obviously felt so free to change it.
I have no time online at all so love to all fishes, I'll sill be lurking from time to time,

I have a hunch some fish might be interested in this:
I have so far collected 15 examples of the CITR title in foreign
languages - from Russian to Swedish - and it turns out that they are
often amazingly different from the original (examples: "Savior in a
Crisis", "Damned Youth"!)
I wonder whether Will Hochman or others would know about this - I
mean, doesn't the author have the right to insist on a more or less
literal translation? Also, wouldn't JDS be the very example of an
author who would definitely insist?
The translations can be found at:

"THE CATCHER IN THE RYE by J.D.Salinger - and related matters"
