The Book of Ezekiel, from the Young's Literal Translation of The Bible. [Translated by Robert Young].

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/book-of-ezekiel-by-youngs-literal-translation/
Young's Literal Translation is a translation of the Bible into English, published in 1862. The translation was made by Robert Young, compiler of Young's Analytical Concordance to the Bible and Concise Critical Comments on the New Testament. Young produced a "Revised Edition" of the translation in 1887. After he died on October 14, 1888, the publisher in 1898 released a new Revised Edition. (Summary from Wikipedia)
  • Target completion date: none
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.ccel.org/bible/ylt/Ezekiel
  • Type of proof-listening required:: CC


    (BC admin)
  • The reader will record the following at the beginning and end of each file:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "Chapters 1-6 of The Book of Ezekiel, from the Young's Literal Translation of The Bible. - This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by Mark Penfold"
    • Say:
      "Chapters 1-6 of Ezekiel, from the Young's Literal Translation. Chapter 1"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      The end of Chapters 1-6 of The Book of Ezekiel from the Young's Literal Translation of The Bible"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by Mark Penfold"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "End of The Book of Ezekiel from the Young's Literal Translation of The Bible."

There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of the recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes.

Hello again Mark! I'd be happy to be your MC. I'll be back shortly to set up your magic window, and also to say something about proof-listening.
I remember how, in college, I got that part-time job as a circus clown, and how the children would laugh and laugh at me. I vowed, then and there, that I would get revenge.

Okay, the magic window is all set up! Let me know if you have any questions.

About proof-listening: There's been some difference of opinion among the Admins about whether people should be allowed to proof-listen their own recordings. I've tried to come to a kind of compromise.

On the one hand, we don't want to be rigid or inflexible, especially since you've got experience with LV and you're obviously trustworthy. We have allowed people to PL their own stuff before, but it's mostly been in exceptional circumstances, like when someone reads a book in a language that no one else speaks. And some Admins have pointed out that in the old days at least, proof-listening wasn't a requirement.

But on the other hand, we don't want to set a bad precedent. We don't want someone completely new, who doesn't know any of LibriVox's procedures, saying, "Why can't I proof-listen my own stuff? You let him do it." The worst-case scenario, I guess, if this does become a precedent, is someone does a solo and nobody proofs it, so he decides he can get away with reading for five minutes and then, I don't know, going on a rant against Jews or something. It's not very plausible, I know, but it's something we don't want to happen even once. A less serious, but more realistic scenario, would be someone new proofing their own stuff and not following LV procedures properly.

Leaving precedents aside, it's always a good idea to have someone else listen to your recordings, in the same way that it's good to have someone else proofread an essay you wrote, even if you've gone over it 10 times. Even the most experienced readers can overlook stuff. Besides, you're talking about The Bible - I doubt there will ever be a shortage of proof-listeners for that. Indeed, there are plenty of people who'd consider it a privilege to help spread the Bible's message, just as my proof-listeners for the WEB Bible, musicmaiden and Bead Krazy Dawn, do. One alternative, if you're wanting to help lighten the load, would be to proof-listen others' readings in an amount equal to your own. stinssd has been working on reading the ASV Old Testament, as I'm sure you know - he's one person you could turn to, among many others.

So here's what I propose. Let me know what you think of it, because I don't want to be handing you down rules like they're the Ten Commandments or something. First, I'll stop monopolizing the proof-listening for your YLT projects. I'll still come by and help out when I know I'm not overcommitted, but others can proof-listen as well. Second, for these longer books like Ezekiel, post a proof-listening request in the Listeners & Editors Wanted forum, once you've got a couple of sections ready (I can help with that if need be). I suspect that you won't have any trouble finding proof-listeners for the Bible, but if no one picks up your project by the time you've completed the recordings, then you can go ahead and proof-listen them yourself.

How does that sound? You won't need to need to wait around for proof-listeners if none come, but you'll still be giving others an opportunity to proof-listen if they want to. Again, I really do hope that we're not being inflexible here. I know you're just trying to help out, and I definitely appreciate that. If you have any other ideas or thoughts, let me know.

Thanks, Mark!

Hi,

I will definitely send my finished stuff to the forum you mentioned, unless of course YOU would like to PL it :D , which would be fine with me! If not, I will send it over to that forum.

Thanks again for MCing! I appreciate it!

Leon,

Would you like me to send this section to the Listeners Wanted forum? Please let me know one way or the other.

Thanks,

Mark,
You can if you'd like to, but usually people wait until they've got a few more sections ready.

Leon,

If it is no problem, I would like to omit the target completion date for this project, because I honestly don't have a clue as to when I will be able to complete it.

Thank you,
Mark
