OSC could use assistance from Spanish and French speakers, among others. Thanks!

Cecile | 67 comments Maybe I can help: I'm a French speaker and I have some of his books. What's the problem ?

They need combining with the English (and other) editions. Far more stray Spanish ones at the moment, but there were a couple French ones too, I think.

Thanks!

Cecile | 67 comments I combined the French editions that could be combined, except Trilogie ender strategie 072596 because the title baffles me: either it's "La stratégie Ender" (Ender's game), or the title is incomplete and it contains the first three books of the series. A search on the web gave me nothing more for this ISBN.
There's also L'apprenti Alvin et le soc bon-rien which would be "Prentice Alvin and the No-Good Plow" if it was there.

While I was at it, even if I don't speak these languages, I also combined some Spanish and Polish editions, thanks to wikipedia. I think it should be ok, but feel free to check.

There are still some Deutsch and Dutch editions to combine.

The first is almost certainly the 1st three books (that is, Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, and Xenocide), and I believe there are English equivalents.

"Prentice Alvin and the No-Good Plow" is an epic poem that became the Alvin Maker series. It was never published as an independent work in the US; just in a magazine and his large short story collection.

Ok, I combined it with "The Ender Wiggin Saga", we can always change that if we get another info later.
