15,000 translations and counting!

Posted by: Jenny Zurawell

Today TED’s Open Translation Project published the 15,000th TEDTalk translation! Last year at TEDActive, TED translators set an ambitious goal to reach 15,000 translations by TEDActive2011. Three weeks ahead of schedule, TED translators surpassed this huge number. Now with subtitles in 80 languages, our volunteer translators are helping TED reach more people worldwide. Thank you, translators, for your extraordinary effort!

    Yes, thank you so, so much. What a profound effect you have on the spread of knowledge and ideas! Only good will come from this, and I am so grateful for your efforts.

    Amazing! What an incredible spread of all those ideas worth sharing to those who probably need them the most thanks to the 4789+ translators around the world of which I am happy to be a part of! May be if we allow and invite translations of the TEDX talks as well in parallel, the spread and speed will be faster and even more phenomenal next year!

    I think for many of us, translating TEDtalks is our way of paying back for all this incredible knowledge we’ve acquired from the organisation.
