Original Foreign Language Titles

As the Title says should when writing questions and naming a work would it be better to use the original Title such as Les Demoiselles d'Avignon or would it be better to use the English Translation The Young Ladies of Avignon.

Re: Kentucky 09-10

I do think that if change is going to come to the Kentucky circuit you will first have to introduce quizbowl to the majority of Teams in the state first. I heard 2 or 3 people say to at KAAC camp that they had played on Naqt before and hated the questions due to the length.
