    I made this thread into "sticky" due to all the projects surrounding it

    Aaron, since I am not native French speaker, you can take me off the list, but I will help if the need arises . . . I can try doing a page at a time, but I don't think that is necessary. Ricky is a great choice, if he would accept!

    ....there was so much sarcasm in that response that I still don't know which one it is....

    Well, it didn't send to Riccardo for some reason so I'll send it to Ricky83...but wait, he just joined last year! Unless Ricky83 is a reincarnation of Riccardo. Gosh this thread went to off topic before it even started lol.

    Hey thanks

    And I am going to send out a message to the very good translators we've seen in the past that only visit here and not AAm. Those people include Roman, Ricky83, Sir Wood, and some others. Hey Orion, do you know of any other good translators on here?

    Well besides our TOP translator, BackinBlack, the other would be garconcanadien . . . but he has since moved on, and I do not know if he can be contacted. You can try, though. I know there are a couple others maybe, but I have to think back. . . .

    btw, thanks for bringing up this little project, Aaron . . . it`s a way of keeping some of us busy when Lili is silent

    It`s about time we did the full translations, anyway! For some reason I thought we had them . . . . but I`ll look around just to make sure.

    Yes, I am highly educated (College/University isn't needed in order to be highly educated hahaha(But really, my English is near perfect(not trying to boast))).

    But anyway, I just contacted Ricky83, Sir Wood, Tapetor, Backinblack, Criss (I think that is Criss_pl from AAm), and of course Roman.

    And no problem Orion, I like taking on big tasks like this and actually getting them done lol. And it definitely gives people something to do like you said; it also brings many people closer together

    Well, counting the parts, je prendrai (d'abord) Number 7 PART TWO: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Y7VDVL9F, si ça convient à tout le monde.
    And actually, it wouldn't really hurt if, after doing our own part, some of us happened to do someone else's as well. Just think back to the lyrics translating project and remember that some of us aren't so great and ended up helping each other by offering different opinions. Of course, there are undoubtedly a ton of stuff that either was never translated or might not be easy to find a translation of. It would be good for those who care all that much still to get the videos and audios. That is, if someone could translate spoken interviews with Alizée. I did the video (with help) of her in Mexico in 2009. I was just enjoying listening to Alizée (regardless of what she actually had to say in matter of fact) from 2010 when she was on Vos Plus Belles Année (radio program). She has the cutest voice even (or maybe especially) when just speaking. from her laid back laugh to her ouais ! to her particular pronunciations of some words, she sounds often very much like she always has. Comme femme, elle a des qualités très attirantes.

    Thanks Dana We'll definitely be able to put you to work lol. But hey, RMJ, are you doing translations of the first ActuAlizee? Or is it something besides translations?

    And guys we can almost start. I'm just waiting for a few more people to respond.

    lol Yep, I confirm you ... the parts regarding the languages! About Punjabi, well, I practised some Karate and I was quite good, but for sure the guy in my avatar is much better than me...

    Aaronius, I find your project really interesting. Unfortunately I don't have very much time, so I'm ready to help, but it depends on what you ask me and above all the times that you need... Just let me know some more details, ok?

    ok, so what exactly are these mags.? I have read pages before, and they seem to be just a collection of all the interviews she did for other magazines. (which a pretty cool idea)

    Is that correct?

    That is halfway correct. The magazines contain a vast array of interviews done through the years along with the chart positions of each single and album. And then it talks about little things like her fan sites, then the person(s) who wrote the magazine talk about Alizee herself. Then sometimes they show interviews that the magazine writer(s) did directly with her. There is so much in each of these...they are true goldmines

    Well today the project officially started so everyone has been assigned roughly a page to translate. So if I gave you a small amount to translate, then could you do it? You can have it to me as soon as you get done (preferably within a week or so). Because everyone got about a page's worth of translating so if you were to sit down for maybe an hour and crank your page through Google Translate and revise it to make it make sense, then you'd be finished and would have done a great deed towards this project and future Alizee Fans

    Wow. With only a little adjustment and very few edits to the text (except the top which didn't come across at all), I was able to perform the first step with great results: converting the image to text in it's original format (with all the photos), using ABBYY FineReader 6.0 Sprint. I wish everyone had that. We'll see how it fits when converted to English though.
