Seven texts are devoted to Lithuanian, and three are devoted to Latvian.

Note: there are great disparities in capability among personal computers in contemporary use. Unfortunately, support for Unicode® and/or the repertoire of fonts installed on your personal computer cannot be detected by a web server! Accordingly, we have prepared multiple versions of each text; this set of texts is for systems/browsers with Unicode support and fonts spanning the Unicode 3 character set relevant to the Baltic languages. (You may switch to other versions via links below.) Texts:

  1. "In the Shadow of Death," by Rūdolfs Blaumanis
  2. "Straumeni: The Story of an Old Farm in Zemgale through the Changing Seasons," by Edvarts Virza
  3. Matthew 2:1-6, translated by Johann Ernst Glück
