    Default on the basis of interest

    En la introducción a su libro de entrevistas el autor dice que las transcribió con la mayor fidelidad posible haciendo pocos trabajos de edición:

    "I edited interviews only for clarity and on the basis of interest".

    "No he editado las entrevistas sino en aras de la claridad y en base al ¿interés?"

    Creo que "interest" se refiere a otra cosa, no me cierra mucho.

    a qué otra cosa se podría referir?

    de todos modos, no entiendo bien la oración en inglés, me suena un poco rara, qué opina el resto?

    It sounds vague to me. It isn't clear to me what it means. Maybe the editor took out the boring parts?

    Sí, es muy ambiguo, y uno de los casos en que tenemos que tirarnos a la pileta y hacer una traducción con la ayuda de la fe, o sea poner lo que creemos que quiso decir el autor pero sin estar seguros en un cien por ciento. ¡Ja, ja!

    I think it means that he edited the interviews based on the interest (of the audience, target, client, etc) and "claridad" meaning that he edited parts that were not clearly understood.
    Hope it helps!
    Realmente, el destino del mundo depende, en primer lugar, de los estadistas y, en segundo lugar, de los intérpretes.

    yeah, I quite agree with Sandra, because it might be "interest" for audience or for client...so, I guess that by leaving "interés" you are leaving it quite open too...
