comment Using ideas from other authors without infringing copyright
Ideas cannot be copyrighted. I think in its heart this is a dupe of: writers.stackexchange.com/questions/3928/… - @Monica: I doubt that the OP wants to write fan-fiction.

comment What editing can I expect for a translation of a previously-published story?
Honestly, I wouldn't be shocked at all. And readers will find discrepancies no matter what, because every translation is like every other work of fiction: it will not suit all people.

comment What editing can I expect for a translation of a previously-published story?
I do not understand this question. Why do you think they treat this submission differently from the others they get? Do you think they want the original version and translate it themselves? Would they waste their time for that? Do they understand Hebrew? Are they capable matching it to the original? If the story is good, why should they care if it is close to the original one? And if the story isn't good, they for sure do not care.

comment What is the standard editorial timeline for genre fiction novels?
Feel free to contact the publisher, there is no shame in it. The "normal timeline" is probably defined in your contract. Have you read it?

revised When should modifiers be avoided?
Thanks guys, for cleaning up, but dashes are no hyphens. And for real dashes: either n with space or m without.

comment What are good examples of backstory in natural dialogue?
Read books. Seriously, every novel out there is doing it one way or the other. If you can make this question more specific, like providing a sample dialog and tell us what info you wanted to convey, we can better help you.
