multilingual video request

Hi there,

The baking videos that I've posted here my wife has also posted on our website. Google Analytics gives us feedback to tell us the number of visitors, plus the cities / regions where we are getting visitors from. Anyways, as we get more visitors from Europe, especially recently Germany and Italy, I was thinking it would be nice to have the option for people to view the two videos with commentary (kneading and folding, plus the shaping one) with subtitles. Seeing as I am monolingual or unilingual, I was wondering if there were any of you out there who would be willing to translate my commentary into French, Spanish, Italian, German, or whatever you think. I could type out the English version, send it to you, then you could write the matching language next to it, so I can match them up with the scenes from the video. What do you think?

i am a spanish teacher in training, so i could surely do some work for you. though i must say im really busy this semester so it would really depend on how much translation work you have.

These are the two videos with commentary that I wished to have translated:

some of the wording is a little technical but generally it is not too bad.  if you send me a transcript i'll get it done.

Alright, I'll get on it then email you the transcript if you've got an email address.  Mucho gracias.  (That's the extent of my Spanish, and it's probably spelled wrong.)

Off topic but I wanted to let you know I purchased two CDs and played them all day at work Friday - I LOVE his music - I'm looking to buy more soon. Any other suggestions similar to his bluesy style?

Are you still obsessing over him? Just kidding, I'm glad you like the music so much. I don't have any similar recommendatins (maybe Susan from San Diego does?), but I do have another for you to check out if you like. Don't know if you also like folksy/country, but the next baking video will (probably) have one from this guy. He was the opening act for a show we saw here and he blew us away. I've got his latest cd on 'repeat'.

p.s. Don't know if you use pandora.com but if you don't they're an internet radio channel that matches music to artists you prefer, and it's a nice way to find music related to the stuff you like...You type in "Kelly Jo Phelps" for the channel and they do the rest.

I'm "up there" in age to really get excited about a musician but his music really caught my ear. I've always loved blues (i.e. B.B. King) so it's nice for me to find something I really, really like. I'm going to try Floyd's suggestion too and I also went to the site you requested and liked that artist, too. I may start listening to music on the way to work...not talk radio!

I just figured out trishinomaha meant "trish in omaha", as in Nebraska.  I never was good at figuring out people's personalized licensed plates either.

Now that you've got me to focus on it, I realize it isn't "trish-o-mania".

That's exactly what I thought it was.  I thought maybe that was like Hulkamania and I missed it somewhere back in the 80's.

That's funny. I guess I shouldn't mention that, before he made a name for himself, he used to play regularly at one of the cafe's I went to all the time (Cafe Lena, which is gone now). I've never purchased any of his CDs, but I think I threw a buck or two into his guitar case a couple of times.

He's good. I'm glad to see he is doing so well.

It isn't quite as bluesy, but I'd recommend Jack Johnson.

That's pretty cool.  I had never heard of him until he visited here two years ago.  Since there's not much to do here, we went -  and loved the show.  Some people just have 'it' as a performer, and I'm sure (if you threw in a couple of bucks) you'd agree, he does.

So many "new" artists for me to discover! Yep, Mark does have a good ear and the music is perfect for the video...
