Hi All !
I purchased the above mentioned DVD and was knocked out by its excellence - so much so, I decided to purchase the book which is recommended and on which the DVD is based.
Yes it's in German but apart from the Scores which are universal, I expected (Oh fool that I am !) the text would be virtually what was said on the DVD but that was not what I found, it is so much more !.

Now I am looking for a Translator ! and to put it bluntly 'so would you all if you had purchased these incredible Tyros, (including the CVPs and PSRs 1000 thru to 3000) aids to playing excellence'.

I have written to PPVMedien the Publishers but have hit a brick wall. I would be happy to have an English Audio file translation referencing the page numbers of the book and I could then provide a Full Document file which would then be made available to English speaking purchasers of the book as an appendix (obviously encouraging Sales).

So if anyone out there could help with a translation, I would happily supply them with their own Book and DVD, I would also include a Free-to-keep Sony ICD-BX140 miniature MicroSD Dictaphone with 2X 4GB MicroSD and a pre-stamped return addressed envelope, for one MicroSD containing the English Translation recorded on it, to be sent back to me.

*"Playing with Styles of the Yamaha-auto-accompaniment" is the full title of the (English spoken) DVD, Styles & Patterns that of the German text book.

I am happy for my email address to be known.....david@magicdavid.co.uk

Hi David

Do you have an iPhone or iPad? If so, take a look at the free 'Scan & Translate+' app (there are probably others) in the iTunes store. German language is included.

It should be a straightforward task using the app and much cheaper than using a 'real' translator!

There's probably an Android equivalent if you've got an Android 'phone.

PM me if you need any advice.

Thanks Chris but unless a human interpreter is engaged in the task of translating technical texts, then the AI used is just not up to it and why Insructional Leaflets and Advertisements from 'foreign Countries' just read as nonsense and gobbledygook.
Kind wishes to you,
Uncle David
