Sadly it's not. When LV first started it was thought to be possible and some were even started but it turned out we needed to stick to the present rules.

I've not the language skills to even start , but I've often thought a translation must be very difficult

Legamus accepts translations, but I am not sure we have any Spanish prooflisteners over there... :hmm:

I would recommend having a finished translation before starting recording, though. Translating takes a loooong time (I should know, I studied it :wink: )

Pardon my interruption, but...

We just did the stage version of "Around the World in Eighty Days".

No, I played several other parts.
The play is written with 39 characters for 5 actors.
We did it with a few more actors to spread the joy.
