14 Years in the Making

Posted on December 30, 2022 by | Posted in Blog | Comments: 1 Comment on 14 Years in the Making

Just in time for our end-of-2022-party, we reached another … well, not quite a milestone, but definitely reason enough for celebrations:

Mengelilingi Doenia Dalam 80 Hari is our very first book-length project in Indonesian!

This is a translation of Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, a book that has always been extremely popular on LibriVox. In addition to the above Indonesian version, we also currently offer it in the original French, five English translations, as well as in Dutch, German, and Spanish.

This project took a group of Indonesian speakers 14 years to complete, which goes to show that LibriVoxers never give up! And also, that each and every contribution, no matter how small it may seem, brings us closer to our objective:

To make all books in the public domain available, narrated by real people and distributed for free, in audio format on the internet.

Join us – it’s fun! (No, really!)
If you needed just the right New Year’s Resolution for 2023, this is it! See you in the forums!
