Would you be interested in a webapp to read (public domain) books with translation each sentence

Hi,

There is a project I'm starting to do for my personal use and I was wondering if people would be interested by using it too if it was available as a webapp/smartphone app.

1) I take a public domain book (gutemberg.org) available in two languages (for example EN and FR).

2) I split the book sentence by sentence and align the EN and FR sentences.

3) I provide a translation exercise similar to Duolingo smartphone exercise "reorder the words of the sentence" like on this picture :

4) I add text to speech as a bonus, either based on speech synthesis or based on public domain audiobooks from librivox.org with the sound aligned with each sentence.

So overall, it would be like reading a book or listening to an audiobook (with the translation available for each sentence), with the possibility of doing as a bonus a translation exercise by reordering words and checking against the translation.

That sounds like fun. I have tried reading a few books in french but it gets time consuming looking up so many words.

Hello Slatour. Have you tried bilingual editions? It's much more fun when you're a beginner :)
