  1. I really really love this site and the pronounciation on the non-english Fellowship…. I could help doing some voice-recordings in the future if needed!! Have a pretty fair pronounciation in Sindarin…

        1. I got it from the translation of an almost identical song that is in the FoTR soundtrack. The unknown Gimli line translates to: “A Crown of Stars in the cold, black water of the Mirrormere, Balin sleeps”
          Go ahead and the check the Moria chant lyrics if you need to.

We love hearing about how people use our translations!
