Multilingual Short Works Collection 032 - Poetry & Prose, by Various
This is our 32nd 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)
This project is complete. Audio files can be found on our Librivox catalog page at https://librivox.org/multilingual-short-works-collection-032-poetry-prose-by-various/

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 1926 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. Partial translations are available on this page.)

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: msw032_[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. msw032_chunsi_wang_drb_128kb.mp3)

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

MP3: (link generated by the uploader)
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!

Bonjour Sonia ! :D


Je suis contente que ça t’intéresse :D , un plaisir de lecture !

Merci beaucoup ☺️ !! Tu m’encourages bien !


Cet audio livre est multilingue, et j’espère qu’Emilie du Châtelet sera connue du plus grand nombre, elle fut une très proche de Voltaire.

Merci beaucoup et bonne journée à toi !
Je n’oublie pas du tout Lecture 03, à très bientôt !! :D

Christiane.

oui je crois bien que le projet multilingue attirera plus d'écoutes qu'on ne croie. Moi même j'ai écouté des poèmes dans une langue qu'autrement je n'aurais peut-être jamais osé entamer.
Je n’oublie pas du tout Lecture 03, à très bientôt !! :D
ah oui, super, merci. Tu as encore un peu de temps avant la date limite, et si tu as besoin de plus de temps, fais-moi juste une petite note dans le projet et ça marche. ;)

A bientôt

Sonia

To rescue a very old abandoned solo, we decided to use some poems in the Yiddish language here in this collection.

I uploaded the first two to be included in this one, the others in the following collections.

Author: Morris Rosenfeld (1862-1923)
Title: Das āreme Gesind' (p. 20)
Source text: http://www.archive.org/details/songsfromghettow00roseuoft
Link: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/msw032_aremegesind_rosenfeld_jf_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 3:22 min.

Author: Morris Rosenfeld (1862-1923)
Title: Der blēicher Aprēter (p. 6)
Source text: http://www.archive.org/details/songsfromghettow00roseuoft
Link: https://librivox.org/uploads/toddhw/msw032_bleicherapreter_rosenfeld_jf_128kb.mp3
Recording time: 1:46 min.

Reader: fink (https://librivox.org/reader/2999)

I added the LV intro and outro and amplified the volume a bit, if you could check this one more time, Michael, that would be helpful. The poems themselves were checked and PL ok by me.

Thanks

Sonia
