Lost in Translation

Humphrey Carpenter, The Inklings (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1979), p. 184:
He [C.S. Lewis] remained lifelong friends with Sister Penelope, and it was to her and her fellow nuns that Perelandra was dedicated in the words 'To some ladies at Wantage'. The translator of the Portuguese edition delighted the sisters by mistranslating this 'To some wanton ladies'.
