Hello all,

There are now over 500 texts/translatons available on CPDL. If you have never seen the list, please click on the Texts & translation link on the left hand menu. To assist in reaching the next milestone (1,000), I have revised the procedure and template for adding Texts.


In the future, ALL sheet music pages will have one of three lines below the original text and translations heading near the bottom of the page. They are


  • {{NoText}}: (outputs Text and translations need to be added)
  • {{LinkText|Latin}}: (outputs 'Please refer to the Latin page for texts and translations')
  • {{Text|English}}: (outputs English.png English' and creates category entries for the Texts and English Texts)


Any language can be added (not just Latin or English). Additionally, there will be a line if a translation exists OR if a translation is requested.


  • {{NoTranslation|German}}: (used if you wish to request a translation in German or any other language)
  • {{Translation|English}}: (used if English translation is written for a non-English work)


These new text templates will be added over the next few days. If you feel comfortable adding texts or translations, please jump in. If you are uncomfortable with editing web pages, just email the text or translation to me, and I will post it. Thanks!

Best regards,

Rafael Ornes
