I was was pulling together a list of free and legal resources for my personal use as I get ready for the Super
Challenge. My focus is on French, but quickly realized many of these sites also include other languages.
Then, I located a number or older threads on HTAL that are a treasure trove of information! I had not
previously stumbled on these threads, and thought they may benefit others. If others want to add sites for
their languages to this thread, I will happily edit/update as appropriate.
Volte's. List of Free
(Created by Volte in 2010) Incredible and Exhaustive list of etexts for most languages. A lot of work was put
into this, and in my opinion, should be a sticky!
Free and Legal Bi-lingual Books
Catalan, Dutch, Esperanto, Finish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Greek, Norwegian, Portuguese,
Russian, Spanish, Swedish
From their website: 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).
German, French, Italian, Japeneese, Spanish, Russian and Polish
From the webpage: These are bilingual texts with original texts and their translations aligned side-by-side.
Most of the files are of classic novels no longer copyrighted. In the United States, copyright expires after life
of the author plus 70 years. See Copyright Term Extension Act for more details. Most files are in Microsoft
Word format, but a few are in Excel and PDF formats. ** Please be gentle with the bandwidth and download
only what you need.
