May I refer you to the full text of Grandpa and the Dragon: which shows that the Valdyan text is about 60% of the size of the English translation. Of course the fact that I wrote it in Valdyan and translated it into English may account for most of the difference. In Dutch it's even more extreme; the Valdyan is half the size of the Dutch.
