"Seltsame Fremde" translates into "strange strangers". Isn't that just beautiful? The world of translation in general is a world of daily wonders. One thing turns into another, which is, however, hopefully the same, unless you messed up or got creative. The aura of meanings surrounding it is also the same, or more often than not not quite. It's like alchemy with words.
Then again, all writing is, in a way. You take something you have in your head or your heart, then turn it into something else - gold, for the most successful, simple words for the rest of us.
