Voltaire's classic work "Candide" presented in three languages (the original French, as well as Spanish and English)

About this project

Voltaire's classic "Candide" published in three languages (French, Spanish, English) in a paperback edition. This book will be useful for those who know one of those languages and are learning/want to learn one of the others, and for those who already know at least two of the languages, in order to compare renderings.

"Candide" will basically be printed in a "paragraph by paragraph" format. Usually, this means one paragraph of French, followed by a paragraph of Spanish, and finally that paragraph in English. In some cases, though, the translation breaks the text into more or fewer paragraphs than the original French. In that case there may be a mismatch of paragraph numbers - but still each section of French/Spanish/English will correspond to the others.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges are virtually nonexistent - "Candide" is available in the public domain in all three languages being offered. I have already created several dual-language books of this sort, and so have a "track record" as far as that goes. So the odds that the project will be completed is virtually 100%.
