Bambi by Felix Salten is now in the Public Domain in the USA. However if the book is getting added, do we have to translate it ourselves? Just asking..

That's right, we need a public domain English translation to host but as
far as I know there isn't one for Bambi. So someone would have to do it
themselves and dedicate it to the public domain with a CC0 license.

I suggest we cause use the FadedPage original German version and any anyone who can translate the German could make a open source translation. https://www.fadedpage.com/showbook.php?pid=20190921

Using Google Translate or any online Translator can also be used, but it’s unknown how accurate they are.

I see, I’ll think about translating the text to english soon… although the English version from 1928 is still under copyright. I’ll get back to you guys when I’m done..

I’ll use a online translator called DeepL to help translate the FadedPage version to English, I’ll let everyone know when it’s done.. although it will take a long time, due to character  shortage.
