Okay, here's what my rusty german skills produced in the way of translation:

Contents: Here's is told the emotionally stirring story of the Redlich family from Oberschlesien: Walter, his wife Jettel and their little daughter Regina fleeing the Nazis in 1938 to an exotic new workd, Kenya. Protecting the little girl in the fascinating lush jungle, the parents, especially the already mentioned Jettel, deal with the hard and simple farm life in hot East Africa.
Stefanie Zweigs' bestselling autobiographical novel "Nowhere in Africa" inspired the director Caroline Link to make the film of the same title, which won the outstanding German Golden Film Award in 2002.

Not too bad of a translation. "Hitze" by the way is 'heat' not 'hot'.

This isn't a soundtrack (OST); it's an audio book. AGuyNamedMike forgot to translate the end of it (the right column) which I'll paraphrase. It introduces the 'reader' of this audio-book as a voice-actress who does the dubbed German voices for the actresses mentioned in their films. It also clocks in the total running-time at about 280 minutes.

The last, small paragraph states that its an approved edition of the same-titled book which is available from another publisher. Then the copyright info for the audio-book you have there.

If you can't read the back-cover, I don't know how you're going to understand the audio-book!

jarsim, you are right, it's not music score, and I don't understand a single word from it. it's a gift so I just keep it on my bookshelf.

Can someone translate these instructions? I tried freetranslation.com but the results make little sense. Just give me the important parts, i.e. how to install, how to use!

=============================================================================
================Far Cry Quicksave-Patch v. 1.0 (inoffiziell!)================
=============================================================================

WICHTIG: Dies ist ein Fanprojekt, also NICHT zum kommerziellen Vertrieb
geeignet!

Bei Fragen, Problemen, Anregungen bitte eine Mail, bzw. ICQ-Message an:

----------------------------------------------
Morpheus ([email protected], ICQ:248087976)
Eagleflash ([email protected], ICQ:204050745)
----------------------------------------------

Dieser Patch verändert nicht die Hauptdatei, d.h. der Patch dürfte bei allen
Versionen des Spiels laufen.

==========================
1.Installationsanweisungen
==========================

Installieren Sie den Patch in das Far Cry-Hauptverzeichnis
(z. B. X:\Far Cry). Nach der Installation startet das Einstellungsmenü
automatisch. Sie können mit der Verknüpfung auf dem Desktop oder
mit "FarCry-QP.exe" imHauptverzeichnis Far Cry plus Quicksave-Funktion
starten. Wenn Sie die Funktion nicht mehr benutzten wollen, starten
Sie einfach die alte Verknüpfung oder FarCry.exe in "Bin32\" im
Hauptverzeichnis.



=======
2.Start
=======

Die Verknüpfung wurde der Schönheit halber FarCry genannt.
Sie unterscheidet sich von der Originalverküpfung durch das
Fehlen des Leerzeichens nach Far. Sie können also beide
Verknüpfungen problemlos im selben Verzeichnis verwalten.
Sie sollten beim Start das leicht veränderte FarCry-Logo sehen.


===========
3.Anwendung
===========

Die Tasten für Quicksave und -load sind standartmäßig F5 und F9.
Achtung:In der version 0.9 hat quickload ein Laden des letzten Spielstandes
bewirkt. In dieser Version wird mit Quickload NUR der Quicksavestand geladen
um Fehler zu vermeiden.
Nach der Installation startet das Einstellungsprogramm automatisch.
Hier kann man die Tasten nach belieben einstellen. Das Setup-Programm
ist in "Startmenü\Programme\Far Cry Quicksave\" oder als "FCQPSetup.exe" im
Hauptverzeichnis jederzeit aufrufbar. Weitere Einstellungsmöglichkeiten sind
das Abschalten des Logos beim Start und ein Wählen des Bildes beim Spielstand
im Menü. Wenn man den Spielstand vom Menü aus laden möchte, er ist
gekennzeichnet durch das eingestellte Bild im Fenster. Man kann jedoch auch
im Menü die Quickload-Funktion verwenden.


================================
4.Bekannte Probleme und Hinweise
================================

Es gibt einige Stellen an denen nicht gespeichert bzw. geladen
werden sollte. Solche Stellen sind unter anderem:


-Nach dem Legen eines Sprengsatzes: Wenn während
des Ablaufs des Timers schnellgespeichert wird, und dieser
Spielstand im nachhinein geladen wird, ist der Timer unterbrochen.
Folge: Die Bombe explodiert nicht und die auf die Explosion folgenden
Skripte finden nicht statt.

-Beim Tod des Spielers sollte man AUF KEINEN FALL speichern.
Das kennt man bereits aus anderern Spielen. Beim Quickloaden
gibt es auch einen Fehler, der aber fast keine Rolle spielt.
Verwendet man beim Tod die Quickloadfunktion verschwindet das HUD,
sprich die Waffenanzeige, das Radar etc. Hier muss man nur ins
Menü und den Spielsatnd von dort aus laden

-Ebenfalls solte man AUF KEINEN FALL im Menü Quicksaven.
Was da passiert kann sich jeder denken.

-Bestimmte Skripte wie das Herabseilen von Söldnern von einem
Osprey werden gestört. Man sollte daher nicht inmitten eines
Skriptes Quickloaden. Das raubt manchmal den Spaß und kann
das Fortfahren des Levels behindern.

-Wenn der Quicksave-Speicherstand der Letzte ist, wird ein
Fehler nach dem Tod des Spielers verursacht. Wenn man hier
zulange wartet landed man wieder an einem willkürlichen
Punkt im Level. Allerdings ohne Waffen und HUD. In diesem Fall
einfach neu laden.


====================
5.Last but not Least
====================

Alles in Allem funktioniert diese Quicksavefunktion allerdings recht
gut, und ist bei diesem ziemlich schweren Spiel sehr hilfreich. Wenn Sie
Verbesserungsvorschläge haben, schicken Sie einfach eine Mail bzw. ICQ-
-Message an eine der Folgenden Adressen

exCentris:
-----------------------------------------------------
Installation Instructions:

Install the patch in the main Far Cry directory (for example, X:\Far Cry).
After the installation, the settings menu starts automatically. You can start the
'Far Cry plus Quicksave option' by using the icon on the desktop or by
running the "FarCry-QP.exe" in the main directory. If you no longer wish
to use this option, simply use the old icon or the FarCry.exe in the "Bin32\"
folder in the main directory.

Start

The icon is known as half of the beauty of FarCry. It differs from the original icon in the lack of the blank space after 'Far'. You could also adminster both icons in the same directory without any problems. Upon starting, you should see the slight change in the FarCry logo.

-----------------------------------------------------
I'll translate the rest later, I'm off to lunch!

Use

The keys for Quicksave and load are the standard F5 and F9. Warning:
in Version 0.9, Quickload has caused the loading of the most recent
standings. To avoid this bug, this version of Quickload will only load
the Quicksave standing. After the installation, the settings menu starts
automatically. Here you can adjust the keys as desired. The Setup program
is in 'Start\Programs\Far Cry Quicksave' or accessible at any time as
'FCQPSetup.exe'in the main directory Further settings options are switching
the logos off when starting and selecting the picture for the standings on the
menu. If you would like to load the standings from the menu, it is
shown as the adjusted picture in the window. You can also use the
Quickload function on the menu.
--------------------------------------------------
The last main paragraphs describe the known problems.
