Hiii, I'm looking to find as many instances as I can of Dutch texts that have both accompanying translations and audio recordings. An example would be a book written in Dutch with an English translation and an available audio book.
I found http://www.grimmstories.com/
which is amazing for the translation part, but I just wish it had audio.
And then I've found http://www.bookbox.com/
which has a collection of stories in various languages with audio recordings. Although I honestly find them pretty boring. e_e
I've also looked at authors like Guus Kuijer and Annie M.G. Schmidt which have books translated into English as well as audiobook versions. But generally I've found that either the English version or the Dutch version of a book costs... over a hundred dollars for some reason.
And then there's public domain works on Project Gutenberg with corresponding audiobooks on Librvox, however I don't know about translations, and plus the language is generally really old with outdated spelling.
I've even used http://opensubtitles.org/
to find corresponding English and Dutch subtitles to use with the audio of a movie. However it's not *exactly* what I'm looking for. xP
And of course there are Dutch songs, which generally always have lyrics posted somewhere, and they're usually easy enough just to translate myself. However that's not exactly what I'm looking for either, and plus the language used in songs is generally, in my experience, very easy language, so I don't learn much.
There's Wikipedia which has loads of articles in multiple languages, however they are almost never parallel translations. Not to mention that they don't have audio.
Tatoeba has loads of sentences
in many languages, a lot of which have recordings. Except I really want a body of text rather than individual sentences.
Maybe I'm just being too picky? XD
Does anybody happen to know of any more resources like this? Thank you! ^_^
