I agree about the Amazon site, which often mis-describes books, stating that the translator is so-and-so when it is not. Feedbooks is more careful.l In the case of Don Quixote, John Ormsby is named as translator, so we do know what we are getting.

Edith Grossman's excellent translation was published only a few years ago. It's very good. But it's unreasonable to expect to get it for free!
