I am now proofreading Le Loup des steppes (Der Steppenwolf) in a French translation by Hermann Hesse (in the public domain in Canada since last year).

My german is next to zero but it would be wonderful to have a bilingual version, integrated or not: so if anyone is interested/wenn jemand interessiert ist!

Working on "La relativité" by A. Einstein and other works of H. Hesse.

Note that, for translations, you need to check the translator's date of death, as well as the author's

Thanks Jellby for the info,

For La relativité, things seem good, but for Le loup des steppes I have not yet found any biographical information regarding the translator. I'll do more research about her (Juliette Pary). It's a little bit sad because the epub is nearly finished.

A quick search revealed some translations by her in the 30's and 40's... and one in the 80's, but that could be either another person or a later edition of a work translated earlier. In any case, that's not enough information to be sure of the copyright status.

I'm working on the French translation of "Mein Kampf". The one that is currently available on Amazon is full of errors, and the format is simply horrible.

Interesting. Does that imply that the Germans didn't order a translation during their occupation of France? Considering Hitler's megalomania I would have imagined that he would have wanted every conquered people to read it in order to understand the righteousness of German dominance.

I would have guessed the errors are mainly OCR errors.

I'm not doing the translation myself, I'm just creating a decent ebook for it. To answer your question, though, Hitler never ordered a French translation because he was thoroughly against the idea. A possible explanation for this is that maybe he didn't want the French people to know about his plans. Les Nouvelles Éditions Latines basically translated it against his will.

Yep, correct. However after having spent many, many hours trying to improve not only the epub itself but also the text (noting every error as I read through it), I found a PDF which contained a much cleaner version of the text. Obviously PDFs don't convert well to epubs, so I had to convert it into HTML, clean the whole thing using a lot of REGEX, then insert the cleaner text in the epub that I had already rebuilt.

Well, well... Finally got the CSS properly configured to show all the nice mathematics, only to discover that since the estimable E.T. Bell only put away his slide rule for good in 1960, this work is no longer eligible for upload here under the new life+70 yrs regime.
I'm therefore wondering if there is some bona fide, mathematically inclined Australian or Canadian citizen willing to adopt it and put it on a server in their copyright-legislation-enlightened country?

How’s this project going? I would quite like to read this book!
