Re: Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

I have tried to use ugarit.ialigner.com to automatically align a Greek excerpt (copied from TLG) with a long English translation to find the rendering of that excerpt in the English translation. The website says that access is denied. There is no help page explaining how to use the alignment program...

Re: Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

Thank you. Older translations are often less accurate than the newer. I find it helpful when a translation is not too paraphrastic and is literal enough (as are many translations from the Loeb Classical Library), since it is easier to match it to the Greek text.

Re: Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

It is easier to make translations oneself nowadays, since the TLG and Perseus databases link Greek words to lexicons. But because I cannot produce translations which are accurate enough, I will have to skip Greek texts for which it is difficult to find translations in the electronic format. The Ante...

Re: Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

Bruce Robertson's Lace has a lot of these texts OCR'd, with fairly high quality. There are a lot of Greek texts on the website, but I cannot see English translations. What I am looking for are English translations of works in TLG which are not found in the Perseus and Loeb Digital Classical Library...

Re: Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

Sometimes you can guess that - one hint: if you want to have a translation of a certain passage of a Greek text - try to google in Google Books for the author and type in a marked expression around the passage you want to have as translation, e.g. yesterday I wanted to read a translation of a unkno...

Re: Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

Thank you for the information. I am doing searches for certain words in Greek texts to see where they are used synonymously or interchangeably. When I was working with texts in the Perseus database, I did a lot of searches for translations on the Internet before I gained access to the Loeb Digital C...

Obtaining Translations of Texts in Thesaurus Linguae Graecae

Hello, Thesaurus Linguae Graecae does not provide English translations of the texts contained in the database. My research is based to a considerable extent on finding English translations of the instances where certain Greek words are used. Can you suggest how to find English translations of the Gr...

Re: Finding Audio Files With Greek-English Reading of the Bible

If there are no recordings with the original text and a translation read together, what audio recordings can you recommend for learning meanings and pronunciation of ancient Greek words?

Finding Audio Files With Greek-English Reading of the Bible

Hello,
I would like to know where one can download audio files containing an intermittent reading of the Greek text and an English translation. For example, phrases or entire verses read in the Biblical Greek language followed by the reading of an English translation.

The catalog section in Perseus Digital Library allows to search for ancient Greek writings and provides links to websites where English translations of those writings can be downloaded: http://catalog.perseus.org TLG (Thesaurus Linguae Graecae) also has a canon section. When I search for a Greek wor...
