JeffB - that quote doesn't make any more sense than it did when first posted.
If you're going to change Hungarian names, do it into English, not into other languages which haven't featured in the chain of transmission ("Feyer" is German, "Ladislav" is Czech). Just call the characters Larry and Annie White if you don't want to deal with the Hungarian.
The English version is due to Lloyd, so what doe it mean that Collins "published" it? Was she falsely claiming credit for it?
