TitleTable structure helps understanding of text and translation
DescriptionA document with an excerpt of Shakespeare's play Henry V with the corresponding part of Schlegel's translation of the play. The English text and the German translation are presented side by side in a table; there is one row per speech and there are two table cells per row, with the English text in the cell on the left and the German translation in the cell on the right. So the sequence is: English speech, German translation, English speech, German translation, etcetera, instead of providing the whole dialogue in English followed by the German translation of the dialogue.
