Today TED’s Open Translation Project published the 10,000th TEDTalk translation! In May 2009, we launched the translation project in an effort to bring TEDTalks beyond the English-speaking world. We kicked off with 300 translations in 40 languages, and in just over a year, thanks to the power of crowdsourcing and the passion of our translators, the numbers have skyrocketed to 10,000 translations in 77 languages. Today over 5,000 volunteer translators participate in the project, some of whom have worked on hundreds of talks! (See “Our translators” page.) Thank you to all the translators for your hard work and commitment to spreading ideas around the globe.
