English subtitles for Arabela (2008)
Arabela is a wonderful Czech fairy tale series, popular all around the world. I ripped Czech subtitles from the DVD's, machine-translated them into English using Google Translate, and cleaned the translation up, so that my fiancée could watch it, too.

Here you can download the subtitles both in Czech and English. They are stored in the windows-1250 charset. Please beware that the English version is very crude.

The following texts are available only in Czech.

Lyrics (1999–2003)
Doug collected a lyrics for a few thousand czech folk songs. Originally, the are storech in an archaic T602 format. I wrote conversion scripts into TeX and PDF. The songs are printed in two columns, the guitar chords are typeset nicely in a mathematic mode, and several tables of contents are generated.

You can download the lyrics conversion macros and Doug's ZIP-files, and convert the files yourself. You can also download final clickable PDF-files with the typeset lyrics.
