Dear Agkar23,
This book is recorded in English, but here is a project in Spanish: viewtopic.php?f=60&t=84791
There is a whole forum for languages other than English: viewforum.php?f=60
But if you wish to try your English skills, you are welcome here too!
Good luck :D

Hi Mark, please note that lately I have had to refer a few times to the original French when the English seemed a bit nonsensical. Among the things I sought to verify was "Charles' Wain" referring to the constellation we know as "Big Dipper." It turns out this is a valid alternative name for this constellation, "Charles" referring to King Charles, and "Wain" being a synonym for Wagon. In the original French, however, the words are "Chariot de David," i.e., King David's Chariot. Turns out, this is what it's called in parts of Ireland. Why Cannan didn't translate it literally, we can only guess, but I stuck with his choice. In other places, I did alter the translation where I felt it was only a matter of errors arising, perhaps, during OCR, or due to typos in the original translation, most often missing little words - just so you know, in case you find yourself following along in the text and hearing a discrepancy.

Joshua, this project asks for a standard PL. I go to the text only if something sounds odd.
If you fix a typo, then most likely I won't notice, and you'd be right to do so in obvious cases, but if you are not sure, please alert us to the confusing text, and hopefully Yuqing and we all together would figure it out :-)

Thank you, Joshua and Mark! That's a great way to handle this kind of situation.

Hi Yuqing and Mark, I need help with some Italian text in Section 30. In the English edition, it is:
"he son gia morto: e ben, c'albergo cangi resto in te vivo. C'or mi vedi e piangi, se l'un nell' altro amante si trasforma."

In the French edition on Gutenberg, it is:
"Ne son gia morto; e ben c'albergo cangi, resto in te vivo, c'or mi vedi e piangi, se l'un nell'altro amante si trasforma."

The English that follows it is:
"I am not dead: I have changed my dwelling. I live still in thee who art faithful to me. The soul of the beloved is merged in the soul of the lover."

Neither versions of the Italian translates to this English. In fact, "Ne son gia morto" apparently means "I am already dead." and the rest of it differs considerably from the English, as well. I believe the way one says "I am not dead" is "Non sono morto." If the "gia" has to be there, then "Non sono gia morto" would mean "I am not already dead." That would fix the first phrase, but the rest of it is still a puzzle.

What do you suggest?

Hi Joshua,
The Librivox guidance is simple: follow what's written on the page. The variations in the Italian text might be explained by different French editions, one in the Gutenberg, the other used by Mr. Cannan. Let's just assume he knew what he was doing, especially if his translation makes sense.
MaryAnn might correct me if I am missing something.

Mark's right ... we read what the author wrote, even if the translation makes no sense to us, that is what was published so that's what we read.

Thank you both. I have read it as written with one tiny exception. I changed "he" to "ne" (meaning neither) allowing for the distinct possibility that the n was mistaken for an h by OCR, and also because "ne" is consistent with the French edition. Finally, "neither am I already dead" brings us closer to "I am not dead."
