Universal Declaration of Human Rights (2) by United Nations.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/universal-declaration-of-human-rights-by-united-nations-volume-02/

Quote:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a declaration adopted by the United Nations General Assembly (10 December 1948 at Palais de Chaillot, Paris). The Guinness Book of Records describes the UDHR as the "Most Translated Document" in the world. It consists of 30 articles which outline the view of the General Assembly on the human rights guaranteed to all people. (Summary from Wikipedia)


Here's a link to the first Librivox collection on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was done 2 years ago: http://librivox.org/the-universal-declaration-of-human-rights-by-the-united-nations/

SPECIAL RULES
How to claim:
The aim of this project is to record the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 30 different languages (so no duplicates).

--> and we succeeded! 42 recordings in 39 different languages, and 32 new languages compared to the first collection! Congratulations

For the text, see: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/UDHR/Pages/Introduction.aspx
Which languages:
30 different languages, and at least the first 24 languages have to be languages not yet included in the first project.
So, please DO NOT contribute the following languages (until there are at least 24 other contributions, after that the field is open):
Quote:
Language that we have already: Afrikaans (afk) - Arabic (arz) - Brazilian Portuguese (bra) - Chinese (Mandarin) (chn) - Danish (dns) - Dutch (dut) - English (eng) - Esperanto (eo) - Filipino (Tagalog) (tgl) - Finnish (fin) - French (frn) - German (ger) - Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) (inz) - Japanese (jpn) - Korean (kkz) - Latin (ltn) - Malay (Bahasa Melayu) (mli) - Polish (pql) - Portuguese (por) - Spanish (spn) - Walloon (frn1)
So please choose any other language in the list of >300 languages here: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/UDHR/Pages/Introduction.aspx

EDIT: The project is now open to all languages. Duplicates of any language are fine.

  1. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  2. Is there a deadline?
    Target completion date of this project: Date – 1 August 2009, but try to send your recordings as soon as you can. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen.
  3. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.ohchr.org/EN/UDHR/Pages/Introduction.aspx

  4. (BC admin)

    =======================================================
  5. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  6. DURING recording:
    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    Start of recording (Intro)
    • "[The United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights^^], [language read version^^]. - 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 [your name]^^"
    • Say:
      " The United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights^^"

    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      End of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This recording is in the public domain. ^^
    • If you wish, say:
      [i]"Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]^^"
    ^^ Paragraphs marked (namely the intro and the outro) with this symbol can be translated into the language the reader is using to read the Declaration.
    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!
    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  7. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3

    File name: all in lowercase: human_rights_un_[language]_[your initials in 4 letters or less].mp3

    Please abbreviate your language, and make reference to this website: http://unbisnet.un.org:8080/hipres/help/eng/horizon/unbis_language_code.htm or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes in making the abbreviations.

    So an example filename might be: human_rights_un_jp_lf.mp3

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://librivox.org/wiki/moin.cgi/WhatIsID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!

    ID-3 tags:
    Title: Universal Declaration of Human Rights, [language] - Read by [your initials]
    Artiste: United Nations
    Album: Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Volume 02
    Comments (Optional): Public Domain; read by [your name]

    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.

    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      http://upload.librivox.org
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: lz - lezer
    • If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.

Any questions?
Please post below or PM me.

Hi Varra,

Just to save your MC a little work :wink: - I've spotted a couple of bits of detail that will need correcting:-

In the instructions for the introduction:-
"Chapter [number] of [Book title]."

In the instructions for what what to say after the recording:-
At the end of the book, say (in addition):
"End of Title, by Author. [Translated by [translator]]."


The instructions for the file name:-
titleinoneword_##_authorsurname.mp3


In the project thread for volume 1, we had reference to the language codes used by the UN. That would be helpful here. (You have a link to the original project thread).

It might also be an idea to say that the intro and outro can be in the same language as the recording, or in English. (I think either would be OK, and it's good to make it clear the reader has a choice. Some might not be comfortable recording in English; others may not know how to translate the disclaimer).

Finally, it might be a good idea to add a link to volume 1, so people can see what has gone before - but also to make it clear that multiple versions of the same language are fine. (EDIT - I see you're looking for 30 different languages in this volume. Is it OK to duplicate languages with volume 1?).

Oh, really finally... You already have some recordings in exotic languages, don't you? Do tell! :D

Sorry, just one more suggestion.

United Nations Day is 24th October. You could set that as a significant target date for publication...

Hi Varra,
I can help you out as MC. I'll go and set it up in the database.

As BC for this project, you'll get access to the magic window to update it with everyone's contributions etc. Have you worked with the magic window before? If not, I can PM you some instructions.

Just to see if I understand you correctly: you want to make this project with only different languages, so no duplicates of the same language? And only after 24 new different language versions have been submitted (not ones already in the first collection), then the other 6 might be filled with already existing ones from the first collection?

I'll be back.

Anna

Hi Varra,
OK, I've set the project up in the database. I've adapted the first post a little bit - let me know if I've understood your intention correctly. It will be a big achievement if you can get 30 different new languages!

Well - good luck on your first BC job! This project is potentially going to be quite a bit of work. Are you going to do all the checking of files etc yourself, or are you going to look around for a prooflistener to help you out?

Anyway, let me know if you have any questions - I'll PM you the instructions on how to work with the magic window.

Anna

Hi there,
so if I understand correctly, we need to chose a language other than the ones posted? if so, I would like to do Italian.
If I misunderstood, and we need to chose from the languages posted, then, Spanish please.

Pls let me know. thanks... :?

Marvellous,

In case you have been confused by the Special Rules, here's an explanation of them:

Firstly, you may read any language not posted in the previous Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) collection. However, if you wish to read the twenty or so languages specified under the 'Special Rules' section, you will have to wait until at least 24 out of the thirty sections (recordings, to be exact) in this project are made up of the languages that have not previously been read. Hence, both your proposed versions of the Declaration are most welcome (especially Italian, since it has not been included in the previous collection)!

Finally, I hope that you would have great fun in joining this project. Thank you!

Varra Unreal

ink tree, will your mum sign up to the forum (or will you sign up for her)? If not, we can create a dummy forum name for her; but it's better if she has her own forum name, just to avoid confusion later.

Hello all

I have noticed a problem with this link: http://unbisnet.un.org:8080/hipres/help ... e_code.htm

Hence, please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes if you are also unable to access the first website.

Thank you,
Varra Unreal
