English Translations

There is a great interest from our international audience that Project Runeberg provide an electronic edition of the English translation of the Norwegian fairy tales by Asbjørnsen and Moe. For this, we must still respect the copyright that might belong to the translator(s). Translations are covered by copyright during the lifetime of the translator and then for 70 more years (life + 70). Several translations exist and we will initially have to choose one of them. Here is the list:
