    Absolutely. A few years back, I (a native English speaker, somewhat conversant in Spanish)

    saw a novella in which the teen-age cast was presenting "Romeo and Juliet" in Spanish!

    Very pretty, but needless to say, very different from what I'm used to.

    - go on goodreads.com

    - select a Shakespeare piece of your choice (one of his major works would make sense for your purpose)

    - click on "All Editions"

    - click on "expand details" to see the language the edition is written in

    --> you will realize that Shakespeare's been translated in a LOT of languages

    As an example, I did the procedure I described above for "Romeo and Juliet". There are over 3,000 editions of this work on Goodreads (that is exceptionally many). I didn't click through all of them but it's clear that this one is widely translated: https://www.goodreads.com/work/editions/3349450-an...

    False

    The definition of "several" includes the words "but not many." Shakespeare has been translated into many languages.

    This is true and has even been translated into Klingon.

    Unfortunately a lot must be lost in translation to any other language because the beauty of Shakespeare in in the specific use of words.
