Translation help!

Hey folks,

I happened across a Swiss children's book in a used book store in the southeastern US today and have a massive favor to ask. Are there any Bern natives who would be willing to translate a short story (~1000 words or so) for me into either English or High German and also record yourself reading the Swiss version?? I say Bern because that's where the story is based, so I'm assuming it may be a Bern dialect, though that could be incorrect! So really probably any Swiss German speaker would be fine!

The book is called Hasefritz u Matten-Edi (Vierzaeh Gschichtli zum Vorlaese), written by Ursula Meier-Nobs, and I would like to start out with just the first story translated. Let me know if you'd be willing to give it a shot, and I'll send you the story!

I'd love to! I'm Swiss and from Bern. So, if you haven't found someone else in the meantime, I could have a look at your story.

Regards

Sylvia

Sweet! I've muddled my way through the first story and at least have an overall understanding of it, if not of some of the individual words. Will send the story in a PM!

Well, I can't figure out how to add an attachment as a PM or e-mail message (no paperclip!), so I guess I'll just attach the story here!

... Attached a zip file with a doc inside, because apparently the doc is too big for EF's size limits!
