Italian Translation of the Librivox site

This page shall be our worksheet for the various subpages of the librivox homepage.

Pages translated into Italian

We are on the way to translate important parts of our website to several languages. Please understand that this is work-intensive and difficult to keep the translated pages as current as the original version. Moreover, it is unavoidable that links from the translated websites mostly point to English pages.

Pagine tradotte in italiano

Stiamo procedendo alla traduzione di parti importanti del nostro sitoweb in diverse lingue. Per favore è necessario capire che tenere le pagine tradotte aggiornate con quelle della versione originale, è un lavoro intenso e difficile. Inoltre è inevitabile che i link dai siti tradotti punntino principalmente alle pagine inglesi.

Public Domain

Copyright, Public Domain and LibriVox
Copyright gives an individual or corporation exclusive rights on a text, for a limited period of time. This means no one else can reproduce the text or make derivative works (such as audio recordings) while the copyright is in force. Copyrights are granted for a limited time, and eventually they expire, and the text enters the “public domain.” Meaning anyone can use that text however they wish. TRANSLATE HERE
LibriVox records only texts that are in the public domain (in the USA – see below for why), and all our recordings are public domain (definitely in the USA, and maybe in your country as well, see below). This means anyone can use all our recordings however they wish (even to sell them). TRANSLATE HERE
In addition, book summaries, CD cover art, and any other material that goes into our catalog with the audio recordings are in the public domain. TRANSLATE HERE

Practicalities TRANSLATE HERE
Copyright and Public Domain in the USA TRANSLATE HERE
What can other people do with LibriVox Recordings TRANSLATE HERE
Why We Use the Laws of the USA TRANSLATE HERE
Other Resources TRANSLATE HERE
The practical implications of our copyright policies are: TRANSLATE HERE
if you record for LibriVox, all your recordings will be donated to the public domain TRANSLATE HERE
you may do whatever you like with our recordings - you don’t need permission TRANSLATE HERE
in general, we can only record texts published before 1923 TRANSLATE HERE
we cannot record texts that are still under copyright in the USA, but public domain in another country TRANSLATE HERE
all our recordings are public domain in the USA, but not necessarily in other countries TRANSLATE HERE
if you are outside the USA, we recommend that you check the copyright status of the work in your country before downloading our recording of it TRANSLATE HERE
Copyright and Public Domain (in the USA)
Under US law (under which LibriVox operates), public domain includes all works published before 1923. A work published after 1923 is probably not in the public domain and we probably cannot record it. If a work is published before 1923, then we can record it. TRANSLATE HERE
Note also, that a translation is considered a new work, and its copyright status is determined by the year of publication of the translation, not the original work. TRANSLATE HERE
Theoretically new works should come into the public domain every year (this is what happens in other countries), however in the United States, a number of copyright laws have been passed extending the copyright term. See the wikipedia article for more info. TRANSLATE HERE
For a detailed flowchart of determining public domain, see: copyright flowchart (from law firm, Bromberg & Sunstein). TRANSLATE HERE
And for more information, resources, and links see the LibriVox wiki. TRANSLATE HERE
What Can Other People Do with LibriVox Recordings
LibriVox recordings are in the public domain, which means people can do anything they like with them. Mostly this just means people can listen to them for free. But it also means they can: sell them (for instance on ebay), broadcast them, put them in commercials, play them at political rallies, chop them up, remix them, make music recordings of them. The recordings are free, and there is no need to credit LibriVox, although of course we much prefer if you do credit us (with a link to our site). TRANSLATE HERE
Here are some other examples of what people might do (and would have the right to do) with our recordings (and, if your record for us, your recordings): TRANSLATE HERE
make CDs of Romance of Rubber sold as a fundraiser for a charity you don’t like; TRANSLATE HERE
put Origin of the Species as background atmosphere for a pornographic film; TRANSLATE HERE
sample Fables for the Frivolous in a violent rap song; TRANSLATE HERE
use the summary of Frankenstein to promote a major motion picture. TRANSLATE HERE
Although these examples are far-fetched, they are all acceptable uses of public domain materials. So be aware of what you are doing when you free your recordings and text into the public domain. You really have to let go! TRANSLATE HERE
Why We Use the Laws of the USA
LibriVox is an international project, with volunteer readers and listeners from all over the world, and we record and make available texts in many languages. Copyright laws differ from country to country, and a work that is in the public domain in one country is not necessarily public domain in another. Our dependence on US law is a matter of practicalities and the legal suggestions we have received from various people. The main reasons that we must use US laws include: TRANSLATE HERE
the domain name is registered in the USA TRANSLATE HERE
our website is hosted in the USA TRANSLATE HERE
all our audio files are hosted in the USA TRANSLATE HERE
the vast majority of our source texts come from Project Gutenberg, which does the (arduous) legal work to assure public domain status in the USA TRANSLATE HERE
it is impossible for us to verify the copyright status of every work in every country, or even many countries TRANSLATE HERE
We do our utmost to ensure that all our recordings are public domain in the USA, and we offer them up to the world for free, but if you are in another country, it’s a good idea to check the status of a particular work before downloading, otherwise you *might* be violating copyright laws.

LibriVox Podcasts
LibriVox podcasts TRANSLATE HERE
A podcast is a way to automatically download audiofiles to your computer from a specific show, or “feed.” You can listen on your computer, on a portable media device such as an ipod, or you can burn the files to a CD and listen on a regular stereo. In order to get podcasts onto your computer, you’ll need some podcatching software, such as iTunes or Juice. Alternately, you can listen to podcasts “streaming” in your browser. For more detailed instructions, see our Guide for Listeners (wiki) (in English). Un podcast è un sistema per scaricare automaticamente dei file audio da una specifica trasmissione o "feed" sul tuo computer. Lo puoi ascoltare sul tuo computer, su un lettore multimediale portatile come l'ipod, oppure puoi masterizzare i file su un CD e ascoltarli su un classico impianto stereo. Per scaricare i podcast sul tuo computer, avrai bisogno di un software apposito, come ad esempio iTunes o Juice. In alternativa puoi ascoltare i podcast in “streaming” nel tuo browser. Per maggiori informazioni guarda la nostra Guida per gli Ascoltatori (wiki).

It's easy to volunteer / Volunteer

Volunteering for LibriVox
Volunteering for LibriVox Essere volontari per LibriVox
LibriVox volunteers read and record chapters of books in the public domain (books no longer under copyright), and make them available for free on the Internet. Practically, this means we record books published before 1923. All our recordings (including yours, if you volunteer for us) are also donated into the public domain. I volontari di LibriVox leggono e registrano capitoli dei libri nel dominio pubblico (libri che non sono più soggetti a diritti di copyright), e li rendono diposnibili gratuitamente in Internet. Praticamente, questo significa che registriamo libri pubblicati prima del 1923. Tutte le nostre registrazioni (incluse le vostre, se siete volontari per noi) sono donate al pubblico dominio.
We record books in all languages. Registriamo libri in tutte le lingue.
You do not need any prior experience to volunteer for LibriVox, nor do you need to audition or send us samples. All you need is your voice, some free software, your computer, and maybe an inexpensive microphone. Non occorre nessuna precedente esperienza per collaborare come volontario per LibriVox, ne c'è bisogno di sottoporsi ad audizioni o inviare campioni delle proprie registrazioni. Quello che serve è la propria voce, del software gratuito, il proprio computer, e eventualmente un economico microfono.
All LibriVox activity (book selection, project management, discussion, etc) happens on our Forum, and you’ll need to register there to join us. Our forum members are a friendly bunch, and questions will be answered there quickly (much more quickly than if you send us an email!). Tutta l'attività di LibriVox (scelta dei libri, gestione dei progetti, discussioni, etc.) avviene sui nostri Forum, e ci sarà bisogno di registrarsi ad essi per unirsi alle nostre discussioni. I membri dei nostri forum formano un gruppo di amici e le domande avranno risposta lì molto velocemente (molto di più che mandandoci una email!).
We do suggest you read the document below, before registering and posting on the Forum, to get an idea of how everything works. Suggeriamo di leggere il documento sottostante, prima di registrarsi e inviare messaggi sul Forum per avere un'idea di come funziona.

About Recording / Sulle Registrazioni
Many LibriVox volunteers have never recorded anything, certainly not audiobooks. If you are new to recording, you’ll find many helpful people on the forum who will help you get yourself set up. Here is an overview, About Recording for LibriVox. Molti volontari di LibriVox non hanno mai registrato niente, certamente non audiolibri. Se si è nuovi alle registrazioni, si troverà molta gente collaborativa sui forum che aiuterù gli altri ad orientarsi. Qui c'è un overview, Come registrare per LibriVox.
LibriVox Project Types / Tipi di Progetti LibriVox
We have a number of different types of projects: Abbiamo diversi tipi di progetti:
collaborative: many volunteers contribute chapters of a long text. collaborativi: molti volontari contribuiscono ai vari capitoli di un lungo testo
solo: one volunteer reads an entire book. solo: un volontario legge un intero libro
short works (prose and poetry): short works and poetry! opere brevi (prosa e poesia): opere brevi e poesie !
dramatic works: “actors” record parts, all edited together. lavori drammatici: "attori" registrano parti, poi messe tutte insieme.
other languages: projects in languages other than English. altre lingue: pregetti in lingue diverse dall'inglese.

Cast of Characters
We’re all volunteers, and we’ve flipped traditional hierarchy upside down. The most important people in LibriVox are the readers, and everyone else works hard to help them make more audiobooks. We encourage everyone to do as much or as little as they like, and mostly if you have an idea and want to implement it, you’ll find lots of support. Here is a list of people you will run into and what they do (note: they are all volunteers): Siamo tutti volontari, e abbiamo capovolto le tradizionali gerarchie. Le persone più importanti in LibriVox sono i lettori, e ogni altro lavora duramente per aiutarli a produrre più audiolibri. Incoraggiamo tutti a fare quanto vogliono, tanto o poco che sia, ma sopratutto se si hanno buone idee e si vuole implementarle, si troverà molto supporto.

Segue una lista di persone in cui ci si imbatterà e quello che fanno (nota sono tutti volontari):

readers: record chapters of public domain books lettori: registrano capitoli di libri di pubblico dominio
book coordinators: manage production of a particular book coordinatori dei libri: gestiscono la produzione di un particolare libro
meta coordinators: catalog completed books on the web meta coordinatori; catalogano su web i libri completati
moderators: help the forum run smoothly moderatori: aiutano i forum a funzionare più efficacemente
admins: try to make sure everyone has what they need amministratori: cercano di assicurarsi che tutti abbiano quello di cui hanno bisogno
How it Works / Come funziona
Practically, here is how things work: Praticamente, ecco come le cose funzionano:
1. a book coordinator posts a book in the New Projects Launch Pad Section. 1.
2. a meta coordinator claims the project and moves the thread to the appropriate forum. 2.
3. volunteers “claim” chapters to read. 3. i volontari "richiedono" i capitoli da leggere.
4. the readers record their chapters in digital format. 4. i lettori registrano i loro capitoli in formato digitale.
5. the book coordinator collects all the files of all the chapters. 5. i coordinatori di libri raccolgono tutti i file di tutti i capitoli.
6. the book coordinator sends the collected files to a meta coordinator. 6. il coordinatore di libro manda i file collezionati al meta coordinatore.
7. we check the files for technical problems in the Listeners Wanted section. 7. controlliamo i file alla ricerca di eventuali problemi tecnici nella sezione Richiesta di Ascoltatori.
8. the book coordinator sends the collected, corrected files to a meta coordinator. 8. il coordinatore di libri manda i file collezionati e corretti ad un meta coordinatore.
9. another public domain audiobook is made available for free. 9. Un altro libro di pubblico dominio è disponibile gratuitamente.

Bare Basics of Recording for LibriVox
All the reading projects are organized on the LibriVox Forum - you can read posts as a “Guest,” but if you want to participate, just register. Then you can post messages, ask questions, introduce yourself, volunteer, and so on. TRANSLATE HERE
Most readers use a microphone plugged into their computer, record with a free program called Audacity, edit out their mistakes and send their files through the Internet (easy instructions and easy uploaders available). TRANSLATE HERE
There aren’t any auditions or quizzes. TRANSLATE HERE
Everyone is welcome! TRANSLATE HERE
Basic Advice about Reading
Volunteer for texts that you enjoy. Don’t volunteer out of duty, volunteer for the pleasure of reading a particular thing aloud to the world. Your pleasure will add a special quality to the recording and will increase the chances that you’ll read more! TRANSLATE HERE
Read the text before you record it - it helps to know what you’re reading. If you’re a wonderfully expressive reader who conveys the text well, you’ll also convey your confusion whenever you’re lost. Some folks will read over a page, record it, pause the recorder or save (safer), read over the next page, record that one, and so on. Suit yourself. TRANSLATE HERE
Allow pauses between sentences and paragraphs; take your time. Let your listener visualize. TRANSLATE HERE
Most readers need to e-n-u-n-c-i-a-t-e … every syllable, every letter sound. A relaxed steady pace helps you to form the full sounds of the words. But if you’re one of the exceptions, who naturally hyper-enunciates, then relax into a conversational style, as if the reader is there with you. TRANSLATE HERE
Try for a steady volume level by speaking up, as if your listener is sitting across a table from you, and keeping a steady distance from your mic (not closer, farther, closer). Or if you naturally speak through walls, find the sweet spot in relation to your mic. TRANSLATE HERE
Modulate your voice — give it life! But don’t over-modulate your voice — give it truth! Here’s a tip: Read from the beginning of the story, and when you reach the end, immediately record the first page or so again. Chances are, you’ll begin a bit stiff and self-conscious, but you’ll soon lose yourself in the story and become more naturally animated. By the end, you’re nicely warmed up, and if you record the beginning again right now, it won’t sound at all stiff or self-conscious. TRANSLATE HERE
Test first - make sure you’re not too close or too far from the microphone. Every time you record, say a couple sentences and check how it sounds. TRANSLATE HERE
Put your microphone at an angle to your mouth, so your breath doesn’t hit the mic full on (making p-p-p-plosives). TRANSLATE HERE
Turn off your phone, and shut your door — enjoy! TRANSLATE HERE
You might prefer recordng in short sessions, taking breaks between, to avoid mental and vocal fatigue. (Combine the pieces into a single file during editing.) TRANSLATE HERE
When you make a mistake, pause a moment, and start again at the beginning of the sentence/paragraph — edit the mistake out later, after recording. Don’t just repeat a word or short phrase — that’ll be too hard to cut with during the edit. TRANSLATE HERE
If you want to improve your reading, edit your own work but don’t be a perfectionist, just keep on reading and editing — you’ll naturally begin to make small adjustments in your reading, and the whole process will become more and more enjoyable. TRANSLATE HERE

Audio software TRANSLATE HERE
LibriVox projects use .mp3 files (mono, 128Kpbs), and most folks use the free, open-source audio recording-editing software, Audacity. Our Audacity FAQ walks you through download, installation, and testing. If you already have software that creates .mp3 files, you’re set; you may want to read or even add to our wiki page, Software We Use. TRANSLATE HERE
Though many computers have built-in microphones, most volunteers find them inadequate. Try yours on short texts (poems, short stories, prime numbers, etc.) if you want to contribute right away while deciding what you think of the built-in mic quality. Most volunteers use USB microphones (headsets or desk mics) plugged into their computers for a balance of acceptable and affordable. Our wiki page on User-Recommended Equipment cuts to the chase. TRANSLATE HERE
Project Specifics TRANSLATE HERE
Each project spells out everything you need to know in its top post: names for files and for mp3 tags, the intro and outro for your recording, where to get the free, public domain text online — for each book or collection or poem, the top post is the place. TRANSLATE HERE

LibriVox Samples (hear some samples)

So how good are the LibriVox readers? We’ll be honest: some are better than others, but what some of us lack in voice modulation skills, we usually make up for in love for the text we are reading. But, remember, we are all volunteers. Before we get to the samples, here is one of the best descriptions, we think, of what’s special about LibriVox (from Institute of the Future of the Book): TRANSLATE HERE
As a regular audiobook listener, I was struck by the fact that while most literary audiobooks are read by authors who tend to work hard at conveying a sense of character, the Librivox selections seemed to convey, more than anything, the reader’s passion for the text itself; ie, for the written word. Here at the Institute we’ve been spending a fair amount of time trying to figure out when a book loses it’s book-ness, and I’d argue that while some audiobooks blur the boundary between book and performance, the Librivox books remind us that a book reduced to a stream of digitally produced sound can still be very much a book. TRANSLATE HERE
So, judge for yourself. These are random samples (honest … OK randomish): TRANSLATE HERE
Kara reads: A Little Princess, Chapter 5

Branko reads: Secret Agent, Chapter 5
John reads: A Modest Proposal
Cori reads: Sonnet 23
Tuija reads: Helsinkiin, Chapter 3
Greg reads: Notes from the Underground, Chapter 2
Grace & Brad read: Twas the Night Before Christmas … (I admit: that one wasn’t random).
Gord reads: Frankenstein, Chapter 17
Acrobatty reads: Northanger Abbey, chapter 14

Firstly, please remember that all LibriVox recordings are done by volunteers. No one is paid for recordings, no one is paid for editing, or cataloging or managing the project. Everything here is done by volunteers. TRANSLATE HERE
The other thing to note is this: some of our readers are better than others. But our policy is to accept ANY reader who wishes to read for us. We have such a huge task ahead of us: to record all the books in the public domain! We can’t achieve that without an open door policy for everyone who wants to help. Plus, it’s part of the LibriVox way. We welcome anyone who wants to help. That’s how we got this far, and we want to go a lot further. TRANSLATE HERE
Our Proof Listening Process TRANSLATE HERE
We have put a proof-listening step into our process to try to catch problems in audio files (perhaps you would like to help? Visit the proof-listening thread on our forum). In this step we try to get all our audio checked before we upload and catalog (which for the record, is not an easy process). We try to catch things like long silences, repeated text, editing problems, volume problems, static etc. But we don’t really make comments on reading style — too fast/too slow, not enough oomph. For instance, we never say: “This reader is not good enough for LibriVox.” Though in some cases we may try to give some feedback to a particular reader, to give some advice on how they can improve. TRANSLATE HERE
So: Please do let us know if you have any problems with a recording you’ve heard, whether technical in nature, or even if it’s a style question. We’d like to know if there are unhappy listeners. If the file can be fixed we will try to fix it; but if the problem falls within the “LibriVox idiosyncrasy” zone, well we’ll let you know. TRANSLATE HERE
Also note: Project Gutenberg has a 99% accuracy target for its texts. On a 20 minute audio recording that would be equivalent to 12 seconds of errors. (Count to 12 and see how long that is). We don’t maintain such a specific target, but keep it in mind when sending us comments. TRANSLATE HERE
So what to do if you have a problem: TRANSLATE HERE
Please send an email to: info AT librivox DOT org

with the following information:

- Name of Book

- Chapter/Section Number - File format (64kbps mp3, 128 kbps mp3, ogg vorbis) - How you downloaded the file (individual download, zip download, ftp, podcast download) - Nature of problem - Time or times-location of problems (if possible)

And thanks for listening! TRANSLATE HERE
