Hi.

The 1980s are considered the heyday of the disco style. At this time in Europe, a huge number of performers were born and died, whose work was in English. At the same time, many songs of local performers were released in English. Particularly in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Austria, Spain, Belgium and France. Some of the performers have remained forgotten. Thanks to the Internet, forgotten songs began to be digitized and published. A huge layer of culture has opened up for people of the 21st century generation. This culture must be preserved and opened up to the world.

I propose to join forces for English speakers to write lyrics for rare songs. In order to preserve this bygone culture and open it up to the rest of the world.

I'm all for it. I've started the songs already.
I think this sort of thing is awesome so I'd love to help out.
The 80's has always had some sleeping hits that few have heard.

How do we go about finding more songs that are being digitized like the ones you've mentioned?

Thanks for your feedback. I have been searching the Internet for such songs for several years now. I have at least several hundred such songs. I can publish them in this discussion. If you want to search for yourself, then there are such songs on the YouTube channel: Petr Sound audio, Moscu ION, Disco 82, 80s Collector, MyJeJe80.

Ok will do. If there are any particular songs you like, you can post them here and odds are I, or others, will get to them quicker.

Ok, but I'd rather publish everything. So that no song will be missed.

Alright. Thanks for bringing attention to this. I have transcribed all the songs in your original post. I will get to the others whenever I am free. I am sure others will help as well.

What do you think of adding them to a collection?

Yes. It is possible to create a collection for this artist or for little-known performers on Lyricstranslate.

This seems like a great idea. Not really sure if this would qualify but it reminded me of one of the most popular Bosnian (and Yugoslav) performers at the time, who released some songs in English and German. This song is from 1978 though, and it seems to be influenced by the Yugoslav ballads popular back then, so not sure it's what you're looking for.

We need more people doing transcriptions in English. I'm not sure if there are other sites that do transcription requests too with a larger population of transcribers? I've been trying my hand at it but there's a massive backlog of requests, and I'm not sure if this will be something I'll be working on long term but I'll do what I can.

I'm also curious since I've been transcribing things a lot were for new artists - I seem to be managing the artist pages. Wondering if there's a way to transfer management since I don't know who a lot of them are...

I don't think transliterations are a huge field that people want to do. Normally with things like this such as music, transcribers aren't needed because official lyrics are often released along with the music. Hence, this is pretty niche thing. I think for things like this project, we're kind of stuck to our own devices.

Also, in regards to your other question, I'm not super familiar with the website (as you can see you are a higher rank than me), but from what I understand, you can't really change who is able to edit certain pages like artists or songs, unless you have an "editor" or "moderator" role (or of course, you created the page). Often, if someone wants to edit details about an artist, song, etc, they will create a post a new topic here and ask for a mod with those roles to edit the changes they have asked for.

Well, I created the Oviformia SCI page
https://lyricstranslate.com/es/oviformia-sci-lyrics.html

This band only recorded demo tapes but never released a record in their period of activity (1981-83). In spite of it they performed in tv shows and did video clips of their songs. Their songs were finally released in a compilation 30 years after.

This is their most known song, "Hablamos de Nosotros"
