Fire in Spanish

Post by elfuego » Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:12 pm

Hi everyone, and greetings from South America!

I´m a 28M just starting my FIRE journey.
I finished the ERE book yesterday. I loved it. So much, that I spent almost an hour talking about it to my girlfriend :lol: Now she wants a copy.
Does anyone know if the book is available in Spanish? I did some research, but only found the English version.
Currently, there are no FIRE/ERE communities in Spanish (that I´m aware of), but I´m sure lots of people share this ideas, but aren´t aware of this movement, mainly because there´s no info Spanish.
If it´s the case, I could translate it myself. But (I think) I must get Jacob´s permission first.

Thanks!

Hello! I don't think there's a Spanish version of the ERE book available. As you said, you need to talk to Jacob about it.

:idea: Get the Kindle version. I don't know what device she has but here is how to do it on an android phone. Download the Kindle app. Download the ere book in the app. Click on the book. On the page hold down on a word to select it. Expand the brackets until you highlight the entire page. On the control bar beside the word share there is an arrow. Click it. Then click translate. On the bottom select from English to Spanish. You will have to do this for every page.

Saludos y bienvenido a la casa de Jacob Lund Fisker - el profesor extraordinario y mago del ERE.

@Jacob - any Spanish translations of ERE anywhere? It appears your international audience is growing.

Yeah, there are some of us! Back in 2015 I and the colombian Samuel, now living in Brazil, had what I believe was the first Latin America ERE meetup hehehe
Also in january of 2017 I rode my single speed bicycle from Brasilia to Uruguay, but I didn't get to know your country.

That bicycle trip sounds insane.
I´m sure that there are more latin american FIRErs/ERErs. Never thought about creating a community?

This is a community, right? Anyway I'm not much of a people gatherer myself, so this one is quite enough for me

@Stahlmann

What section of the FAQ should I look at? Nothing jumped out at me.

Q: I’ve read your book and I think it deserves a wider audience, so I’d like to translate it into …
A: I appreciate the offer. However, the main audience of the ERE book is mostly educated types who read English anyway. In fact, only about 5-8% of the book is sold outside the US, which means that that it would be a lot of effort just to sell a few dozen translated books per year. That is not to mention the logistics wrt publishing it and making sure everybody gets paid and all the paperwork gets filed.

@Sthalmann

Where was that posted? I was clicking on the " ? FAQ" icon on the top of the forums and I didn't see that listed within the various categories.

@Stahlmann

Thanks - I forgot about his FAQ on his blog. It is interesting to note that it was last updated in 2016. That only english readers read an english only book isn't surprising. I understand Jacob not wanting to go through the trouble of translating the book and publishing it. But it begs the question, if the book was written in spanish, french, or chinese, would it sell or be read more widely? I guess we'll never know.

Thanks @Stahlmann! Literally, the LAST of FAQs.
I understand about the inefficiencies of translating for small audiences, but I was thinking more about spreading the word, for the long run.
Anyways, I will recommend the @Dream of Freedom´s technique for the ones interested.

Ahorita estoy en Guatemalan. El padre de mi amigo tiene años en hacer algo parecido a ERE. Me prestó su libro de “Padre Rico, Padre Pobre,” explicando que hace mucho que ha pasado su filosofía, entonces pienso que haya gente que tendría interés. En todos modos, dudo que valga la pena de publicar por si mismo.
