Bible (CUV) NT 02: Mark -- 聖經 (和合本) 新約全書: 馬 可 福 音.
This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/bible-cuv-nt-02-mark-by-chinese-union-version/
The Chinese Union Version (CUV) (Chinese: 和合本; pinyin: héhé běn; literally "harmonized/united version") is the predominant Chinese language translation of the Bible used by Chinese Protestants. It is considered by many to be the Chinese Protestant’s Bible. The CUV in use today is the vernacular Mandarin version, published in two slightly different editions - the Shen Edition (神版) and the Shangti Edition (上帝版) - differing in the way the word “God” is translated.

聖經 (和合本)(簡稱和合本;或稱國語和合本、官話和合本),是今日華語人士最普遍使用的聖經譯本。此譯本的出版起源自1890年在上海舉行的傳教士大會,會中各差會派代表成立了三個委員會,各自負責翻譯《官話和合本》、《淺文理和合譯本》及《文理和合譯本》。

(Summaries from Wikipedia)
  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. The target completion date for this project is DD Month YYYY.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.o-bible.com/cgibin/ob.cgi?version=hb5&book=mak&chapter=1
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: [BC please fill in]

    (BC admin)
  6. BEFORE recording:
    Please check the Recording Notes:
    http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

    Set your recording software to:

    Channels: 1 (Mono)
    Bit Rate: 128 kbps
    Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz
  7. DURING recording:
    Please leave no more than 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of your recording!

    Make sure you add this to the beginning and end of your recording:
    聖經 新約全書 (聖經和合本─神版)馬 可 福 音
    • "第()章. -這是[your name]為 LibriVox 點 org 所提供的錄音。LibriVox 的錄音都是公眾所有的。 "
    • If you wish, say:
      "location, time"
    • Say:
      "馬可福音 第()章."
    End of recording
    • At the end of the section, say:
      第()章. 完"
    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
    • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
      "馬可福音 完. "
    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!
    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3
    gospelmark_##_cuv.mp3 (all lower-case) where ## is your section number. (e.g. titleinoneword_01_authorsurname.mp3)

    ID3 V2 tags
    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message). Please mind upper and lower case!
    Title: Chapter ##
    Artist: Chinese Union Version
    Album: The Gospel of Mark
    Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.
    Transfer of files (completed recordings)
    Please always post in this forum thread when you've sent a file.
    Also, post the length of the recording (file duration: mm:ss) together with the link.
    • Upload your file with the LibriVox Uploader (when your upload is complete, you will receive a link - please post it in this thread):
      http://upload.librivox.org
      Image
      (If you have trouble reading the image above, please message an admin)
      You'll need to select the MC, which for this project is: jc
    • If this doesn't work, or you have questions, please check our How To Send Your Recording wiki page.
Any questions?
Please post below or PM me. :)

Hi, JC,

I made a recording of Mark Chapter 1. Please take a look and see if this recording is okay. I am a beginner of Audacity... don't know how to edit it...

Dear JC,

Hi Yuli!

I've checked section one, and it's very good! You've got a gorgeous voice, and the reading is very clear.

I would only suggest applying a bit of noise removal to the files, as there is some noticeable background noise. There's a quick guide here:

I'll move this thread to Readers Wanted.

Thank you, JC! Should I remove the noise and upload them again?

And let me sign up for Chapter 6-8.

You're up for 6-8.

Yes, it would be great if you could clean them and re-upload!

Hi, JC,

I tried to clean them and re-upload. Not sure if it's okay. I'm not so good at computer stuffs... I messed up with the original recording of Chapter 1, therefore I remade it; so did Chapter 5.

bless,

yuli
