Is this still the case with modern translations of Vedas?
None is translatable.In the Vedas we have mantras that were directly perceived by the seers.Its the highest truth that has to be understood by Spiritual Practices.These are called Vedamantras.
The meaning of the Vedas is revealed only to seekers and saints.
