Multilingual Short Works Collection 030 - Poetry & Prose, by Various
This is our 30th collection of short pieces, poetry or prose, fiction and non-fiction, in several different languages (except standard English) as listed below. All chosen and recorded by Librivox volunteers. (Summary by ToddHW)

If you are a new contributor, please read the following instructions carefully. Don't hesitate to ask in this thread (Post Reply) if you have any questions! Project roles: Michael (Kazbek) is BC, Todd (ToddHW) is MC, and Sonia (Kitty) is DPL.
1. Choose an acceptable source. This collection is for recordings of short works (under 72 minutes), in any language except (modern) English. We can only accept readings of texts that are in the public domain in the United States. Specifically, we can publish recordings made from scans of books whose title page shows a date of publication of 1925 or earlier, which can be found at Archive.org, among other sites. We can also use most sources found at Gutenberg.org (if the book page says "Public domain in the USA"). We can use Wikisource only if there is a scan available at the "Source" tab. If you are unsure about a source, please ask us before recording it! Our contributors are also expected to verify themselves that the texts they record for LibriVox are in the public domain in their own country.

2. New to recording? Please see our Newbie Guide to Recording (available in several languages) for further instructions. A quick guide to our required technical settings can be found here. LibriVox recording settings: mono (1 channel), 44100 Hz sample rate, 128 kbps constant bit rate MP3. See the Tech Specs.

3. The format of the "intro" and "outro". (Can be in the language of the recorded text. Translations into many languages are available here.)

Leave 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning.

At the start of the recording say:
"[Work title] by [author], read in [language]. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org" [Optional: "Read by your name."]
At the end of the recording say:
""End of [title], by [author]" [Optional, and if not stated in the intro: "Read by your name, city, date."]
Leave 5 seconds of silence at the end.

For short poems and other texts shorter than 500 words you can use the following format:

At the start of the recording say:
"[Title] by [author], read in [language] for LibriVox.org ".
At the end of the recording say:
"End of poem (or [title]). This recording is in the public domain" [Optional: "Read by your name, city, date."]
Leave 5 seconds of silence at the end.

4. Filename: msw030_[work's title]_[author's last name]_[your initials]_128kb.mp3 (all lowercase and without accents, compressing the first few words of the title with no spaces) (e.g. msw030_chunsi_wang_drb_128kb.mp3)

5. Upload to the LibriVox Uploader: https://librivox.org/login/uploader (MC to select: ToddHW)

6. Copy the file link generated by the uploader and post the following information in this thread (Post Reply):

Duration: (mm:ss)
Author: (author's name)
Title: (of the work you recorded)
Language: (of the work)
Text: (link to the text from which you read)
Keywords: (a few terms that describe the work)
If this is your first LibriVox contribution, let us know under what name (or nickname) you'd like to appear in our catalog.
7. Watch this thread for PL (proof-listening) notes. The PL level in this project is "special": our PL will follow along with the text and listen for any discrepancies that may change the meaning of the text. (For explanation of PL levels, see Guide for Proof-listeners.)

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

wow a very strong story for starters, thank you Bernd :shock: I was hooked to find out how this would all end. Very interesting and sad too.

Nearly perfect, only one small significant error:

> at 6:05: "sie hatte ich sofort erkannt" - you say "sie hatte ihn sofort erkannt" - which changes the meaning

thanks

Hi Melina,

It's great to see another contribution from you! Are you inviting others to contribute Bulgarian readings (which would be great, of course) or asking for recommendations about works that you could contribute yourself?

awww what a wonderful romantic (but sad) love ballad :9: I really enjoyed it and I enjoyed your narration of it. Thank you very much Melina, this can be marked PL ok right away. If I had to say anything, maybe you could leave less silence between the end of the story and the final disclaimer, nearly 3 seconds is a bit long. But that was the only thing that was sticking out, so I will not fail the section for this alone. Maybe remember it for next time.

Do you want suggestions on what to read next ? Have you looked at archive.org already ? Maybe you find some nice folk tales there in Bulgarian ? I don't know much about the literature in Bulgaria, so I am not the best person to suggest anything.

But I hope to hear more from you :) Thank you for this contribution.

Sonia
