Sections 80 through 91 ready for PL.

I have included for now just the poem and the 'translated by.'

To be honest, I am getting confused by my too elaborate numbering scheme in this project. I'm going to include the outro when I edit the Italian and English together and I have not yet decided on the proper transition to the English from the Italian. Does anyone have a suggestion for this? I'm thinking of just using a long pause as the project should 'speak' for itself. At least I think it will.
Our original plan was to have "Translation by [Translator's name]" as the transition.

I was going to volunteer stepping in to PL these, but I see that Emanuela wrote in another thread to say that she's been having tech troubles.

That would be great. Thank you!

My parts, so far, are simply the 'translated by ...' and then the poem. I'll add the outro during the editing.

Hallo everyone.
I'm back, with the PC working again.

Now I will start again with the PL, if it is ok for you all.
If Michael - or someone else- had already done them, it's absolutely ok, I'll step back.

Emanuela
Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Emanuela, please continue. I believe Michael would have helped until you could return.

Ok thanks.
Once again, I'm sorry for the delay. :oops:

I Pl-ed section 37, 38 and 40 and they ar OK.
Thank you Michael. Your Michelangelo in italian is outstanding.

Just one thing:
the volume is just a little low I think.
Section 37 is 88:5 dB, section 38 is 87:9 dB and section 40 is 88:2 dB said the checker.
Are those still accettable?

Emanuela
Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Now for the section 80.
Kevin here there is no "End of poem", as you said in the previous sections, nor the translator at the beginning.
In section 79 you didn't said the translator either, but I supposed it was because it was the same as in section 78, where you said "translated by Taylor".
Here the translator is different.

I think that you should add the translator name, and in the case of several poems with the same translator, see if is better to repeat the name each time, or just separate them poems with the "End of poem" sentence.

Yes, they're acceptable. I would only mention the volume if it's below 87 (86.9 or lower), and that is being more strict than required. :)
