PM-ing the link, maybe. As several people have said, they aren't interested in making money off of the texts, including myself.

If someone wants to go through them and check the copyrights (of the original text and
the translations), I can host them, given it's ok with whoever created the files. I
guess 1/3 - 2/3 could have copyright issues, depending on which translations were used.
I've got a copy of the texts. Better to make them available to everyone if possible
rather than passing them around privately. I could do it but probably wouldn't get
round to it for a while.
Regarding the Hindi texts, are there any of Premchand's books that have both
translations and recordings? That could be turned into a bilingual text.
Here's a number of sites with audiobooks in Farsi. There are apparently a lot of
audiobooks in Farsi, despite not being that easy to find in bookshops (at least outside
of Tehran). It should be legal for anyone outside of Iran to download them, due to
their funky copyright laws.

That's not important, it's because of the forum rules. :) I'll try to send the texts to anyone who contacts me, of course, but it can be a little tiresome for me.

Found a parallel text to accompany the excellent Don Quijote audiolibro mentioned earlier at
(very clear, native speaker. So much better than the librivox readers)
You have the choice of English, French, German, and Italian as your counterpart to Spanish.
Additional parallel texts (mostly Spanish-English) are further up at
