Hi! I'm a little perplexed about the intro and ending texts: Do you want us to actually say "Translated by Ian Johnston, 1938 to alive?" That seems kinda odd to me but I haven't been around long enough to become totally familiar with the protocols here. Would "Translated by Ian Johnston, born 1938" work?

Thanks!
Ben
Ben,
You do not need to read the translator's birth/death years in the intro/outro. That's a glitch in the template generator that should have been removed when the project was launched. My apologies for the confusion.
Ahhh gotcha! Thanks!

Thank you, Ben! What wonderful reading. I just have two PL notes: There is a repeat at 19:26 ("that he . . . he firmly intended"). Also, the volume of the file is only 86.2 dB. The acceptable volume range is 87-91 dB. To amplify the file in Audacity, select the whole recording. Click Effect > Amplify. In the Amplification box, enter the number +2.8. Verify that the file is around 89 dB using Checker.

Please make the corrections noted and re-upload using the same file name. Post in this thread with the new duration when you are ready for spot PL. Thanks again.

Hi! Here is Part 3 with that repeat edited out, and with the volume increased to what Checker now says is 90 (I assume that's within appropriate bounds). Duration still says 38:56.
Thanks!
