Hello,
I read for Librivox ( an Irishwoman living in UK) and I am intrigued to join you all here too! Look forward to spending time here and tackling some new projects.

Hi,
I am Basquetteur, a Spanish living in Belgium. I collaborate in Librivox since about January 2016, so I am quite new there also.

I do not read, I only do covers. And I realise here the practice of making covers may not be the same here as in Librivox. Anyhow I am willing to collaborate here also, for books that can be produced in Europe and not in Librivox. I see there are not yet books in Spanish here.

I put my covers in Librivox just for fun, here:

Regards,

Good to have you here, Basquetteur! I don't know much about the cover process here, but I am always really happy to get covers for my books. :D

Welcome, Basquetteur! :)

I don't know anything about the cover process here (and only a little about the one at lv), but I agree with Cori: covers are great and an essential part of the whole work. :D

Welcome to Legamus. :)

The cover process is somewhat simplified as we only do a picture cover (if you take a look at our catalogue, you can see what I mean)

Basic rules:
  1. The BC has the right to refuse a cover, so please check beforehand if your 'vision' suits the BC and also be mentally prepared to make some changes :)
  2. Picture sources have to be public domain - information about the source should be either posted in the thread of the work or directly on the cover
If you have any questions, just shout! :D

¡Hola! Soy Mongope, colaboro en LibriVox donde ya he grabado varios audiolibros. Me gustaría hacer algún proyecto aquí. No sé qué requisitos son necesarios. Iré mirando los foros o si me podéis ayudar "encantada"

Saludos a todos. ;)

Hello Mongope and welcome to Legamus! :D

Most things here are quite similar to LV, most important: the tech specs are the same. As you have done recordings for LV you can go to the Launch Pad and start your project.

Muchas gracias por la bienvenida, Hokuspokus.
Tengo una pregunta o una duda o como lo queramos llamar: No sé si me he equivocado de sitio, no veo que el idioma español esté presente aquí. ¿Me equivoco?
He visto algunos proyectos en los que en el enunciado figura "SPA" y he creído que eran grabados en español, pero al comprobar veo que no. Están en inglés.
Las plantillas de los proyectos tampoco dan la opción en español...Esto no es problema, pero quizá...aquí no se aceptan los proyectos en español...??? Y...si se aceptan, porqué no existe la plantilla en español?
No sé...

Gracias.

Montse.

There are no Spanish recordings yet and unfortunately there is no Spanish translation for the template. But we do of course except Spanish recordings. We would be very happy to have yours!

You can use the English template or if you want, translate it into Spanish. We could then add it to the template generator for all future Spanish readers. Same for Intro and Outro.

I don't know if there is any Spanish speaking person around at the moment. DPL could become a problem. Maybe you know someone at LV or some other friend you could ask to PL for you?

I do not understand your access policy here - I registered 2 days ago and posted a question.

I'm logged and I have ZERO posts.

So can you tell me WHEN the access will be granted? Or there are any unspecified conditions I have to accomplish?

Hello Matt and welcome here :D

The first post of each person must be approved by an admin which I did just now. We are under a massive spam attack at the moment (we are working on it). I am afraid you first post got lost among the spam. Sorry. Please ask your question again.

Hi,
My name is Antonio Soto Patiño and I’m studying to become a voice over actor in Spain.
Before that, I have been working and living in many countries for twenty years, and I speak six languages.

Since I am much more literature-biassed than most of my voice over colleagues, I thought that a good way to get experience, as well as improving practically my acting skills, could be to read books I loved. I just started last week by recording myself in Spanish The Raven, by Edward Allan Poe, both as an audio podcast in SoundCloud and as a YouTube video with Rachmaninov's music as background (The isle of the dead, op.29).

I was just searching for new places to syndicate the podcast RSS, when I suddenly found your site. It has been an incredible encounter. All of a sudden, I have found a new mean to express my abilities, and at the same time find readers that I do not need to look for myself. I can focus simply in improving and doing a better job with the reading and audiobook processing.

While my final goal is to make of my voice a living (together with computer programming), I am a true believer of open source projects and to give back in exchange of the so much we receive from others. Therefore I think this could be a wonderful way to offer something to others while, at the same time, building my own career by doing something beneficial to others.

I am ready, and willing, to help you with texts in Spanish, English, French, Italian and even Russian or German (well, I am now learning German, although I could read with a very good accent, even though I wouldn’t understand much of what I would be reading… yet).

:D

Hola, Montse:
Soy español y nuevo en Librivox y Legamos. Mi idea era leer libros, pues es mi enfoque personal y profesional actual, pero puedo ayudar con otras tareas.
Y empezar a hacer crecer la comunidad en español.
Saludos.

Hi, Hocuspocus (or maybe Hokuspokus -in the germanised version-), :-)
I am new to LV and Legamus, but I can help with Spanish books. And in other languages as well.

Antonio

Hello Antonio and welcome!

Depending an the translation you used, you could add your Raven recording to our Multilingual Collection if you want. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=997

Hi everybody,
I just had my 1st Libriversary at Librivox. LV is where I learnt about legamus.
At LV, I am coordinating my first book (Jenseit des Tweed by Theodor Fontane) at the moment.

I'm just checking in today, but I might come up with a legamus project of my own, when I finished my LV project.

Thank you all for your great work.

Have a nice day
Ricarda
