Hello,
I was wondering if you all would consider reading Our Father (The Lord's Prayer) in a number of different languages. Something like your Multilingual Poetry Collections. I really enjoy them and since I'm trying to learn Our Father in as many languages as possible it would be a fantastic resource. Thank you all for the amazing work you do on here. I really appreciate it.
Andrea Grace

That's a great idea! I presume there are multilingual Bibles in the PD so we would just need to find the relevant passage (Matthew 6:9-13) for people to read and we could do it in as many languages as people want!

I agree, this is a great idea. I don't know how we would go about setting it up, though.

Whoever BCed it would need to set some boundaries before they started
Are you only after 1 version in say English , if so are you going to say 1st in first served?
or stating it must be a particular version?
It's essential that the version used be PD - (many readers believe it's a bible , it must be PD)
would you accept a sung version ?

There are probably more - that's all I can think of first up.

I'm thinking of setting this up, but I agree, I need to do some research first.

I would accept multiple versions in different languages - I'm thinking of sorting the collection by language, so all the "EN" ones would be together, etc. Sung versions would be fine too.

I think the filenames would be long, but something like ourfather_en_blt_128kb (where the language and reader initials help to sort the sections by language in the catalogue)

I think the first post would need to be a resource post with a few suggestions of PD Bible translations.

I would probably post it in the Short Works forum, but I'd like to post in the "Other Languages" forum with a redirect link to the main project?

when you say multiple versions in English, say, do you mean 6 KJV versions or 1 KJV , 1 ERV , 1 WEB , 1 the bible for young people, 1 DRV etc. ?

I was thinking whatever people choose to read. I was going to do it like the Anniversary collections where as many people as want to participate just read until the closing date of the collection. Each reader just putting in the link of their text as they've chosen to read it.

My major issue would be how to DPL it, since I only read a few languages well enough to DPL - French, Greek and English, maybe Latin at a pinch.

For the multilingual short works collections, people just pitch in and PL whatever languages they can :) I think that normally work out just fine (I rarely have much to do with those, except I swing by and PL Spanish recordings or other languages where I can be of help). I think it is a good idea to have a link to it somewhere in the "other languages" forum or somehow make it visible for readers who dont record in English.

We've always managed somehow. I've Pled projects that I don't understand, not pled well I'm sure but reading along gives at least some idea and I have picked up some mistakes. I slow the speech down . Only those with Roman alphabets though :D

I would be interested in participating. I can read the Our Father in French, Spanish, and Old English.
