I came across another site yesterday that is quite useful for reading and listening to languages - it's called Wordproject.org and is another multilingual Bible site. The best site by far for comparing a large number of translations side by side is Unbound Bible, but this one also has a few advantages, namely:
- Some of the translations also have recorded audio, so you can listen and follow along as well. But more important for students of Chinese:
- There are three Chinese editions (plus audio), simplified Chinese, traditional, and...pinyin!
- The Hindi edition has a transliterated version as well.
This means that when they are put side by side it ends up looking like this:
with the English translation on the left, Chinese in the middle, pinyin on the right. See it for yourself here:
For Chinese it doesn't get any better than that.
Of course, the student of Chinese has the luxury of a ton (virtually unlimited) of other resources too with Chinese characters, pinyin and audio, such as the language courses here.
Hindi is a much harder language to find resources for so the pages here:
are probably the most unique resource.
