Bilingual Books

Introduction
In this section of the website, out-of-copyright literary works are made available in multiple languages. The books are aligned to create parallel texts: each sentence or paragraph is alongside the same sentence or paragraph in the other language(s).
This resource is provided free of charge for the purpose of language learning, language teaching and translation research, and as a demonstration of the text alignment services offered here.
New books will be added on a regular basis, so keep checking back.

Technical information
Some of the texts were aligned by myself, others were provided by people with an interest in language learning through literature. Some alignments were done manually, others are unreviewed autoalignments. This information is listed in the books.
Some books are made available as parallel multilingual texts (i.e. in more than two languages, all side by side). You can hide the languages you don't need; just wait for the page to fully load, then press the Hide button and wait a few seconds. (Recommended browser: Chrome or Firefox.)

Requesting books
If there is a book you would like to see in the collection, try and find good quality source texts in as many languages as possible and send them to me for consideration. The book will probably be added eventually – if it is out of copyright, if it is of general interest and if the texts can be processed without any undue difficulty. Of course, if you would like to have a book aligned even if it is copyrighted or otherwise unsuitable for this collection, you can send me the texts (purchased as e-books, for instance) and order it as a normal paid job, to be delivered to you and not published on the site.

Contributing
Contact me by email if you would like to contribute to the project by helping collect, align and review public domain texts. You will of course be given full credit for your work in the completed files.

Copyright information
Source materials: An effort was made to make sure that all source texts are out of copyright or otherwise in the public domain in accordance with Hungarian law and are thus free to distribute. Contact me if you are a rights holder and you believe that a mistake was made and some of the works presented here are copyrighted. Any offending material will be taken down as soon as possible.
Use of the aligned books made available here: Downloading, copying and sharing individual books for personal use, language teaching and linguistic research is authorised, provided that appropriate acknowledgement is given as follows: © 2014 FarkasTranslations.com. Bulk downloading, bulk dissemination and commercial use not permitted. Contact me for permission to download or re-distribute the whole collection.

Bilingual books for e-readers

You can generate e-books for your e-reader (Kindle, Nook, Kobo etc.) from the books made available here.
The program I wrote for this purpose is Ebookmaker (for Windows only). It generates bilingual files in an 'interlaced' format, not in two columns (e-reader screens are too small for a two-column view). Here is a sample file (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in English and Spanish). The sample file is in .mobi format, but Ebookmaker can generate other formats as well.
In order to use Ebookmaker, you need to install Calibre. Then download Ebookmaker and download the .zip archive of the book you're interested in (click on the link in the table's Download column). Unpack both .zip files and launch Ebookmaker/bin/ebookmaker_xxx.exe.

List of Available Books


English
