UNESCO International Mother Language Day 21 February


The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization was established on 16 November 1945. UNESCO’s mission is to contribute to the building of a culture of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information.

Mother Languages for Global Citizenship: Spotlight on Science

On 21 February 2014 UNESCO holds International Mother Language Day.  This year the focus is on the use of the mother tongue in early childhood education.  In particular, the effect this has on Science education.  UNESCO advocates for mother tongue instruction because of its importance in creating a strong foundation for learning: the use of the mother tongue with young children at home or in pre-school prepares them for the smooth acquisition of literacy in their mother tongue and eventually, the acquisition of a the second language at a later stage in their education.unescoquote

At the summit in Paris, attendees of Mother Tongue Day in 2014 examine issues related to local languages and science.  Experts will discuss the role of local languages in the promotion of traditional and indigenous knowledge and its contribution to addressing major issues related to global citizenship.

The importance of mother tongue instruction in the early years of schooling is emphasized in the findings of studies, research and reports such as the annual UNESCO EFA Global Monitoring Report.

Out of this world

Every now and again a project comes along that connects with your inner astronaut. It takes you back to the time when you first saw the footage of the Apollo astronauts on the moon (am I dating myself here?). One such project is ARKYD from Planetary Resources. ARKYD is a Space Telescope for Everyone.

By its very nature, ARKYD is a global project, so working with Dotsub to make their video accessible in multiple languages was a natural fit. Dotsub provided the ability for Planetary Resources to make its main video available in multiple languages, not just its original English.

So far the video is available in  Spanish (Español), German (Deutsch)French (Français)EnglishCroatian (Hrvatski), Hebrew (עברית), Russian (Российская), Português (Brasil)Swedish (Svenska)Japanese (日本語) and Chinese (中文)—  and they are adding new translations all the time!

*** New language added *** The video is now available in Klingon (tlhIngan), just in case !!!

Frank Mycroft, Planetary Resources’ Director of Strategy said “Supporters around the world were eager to view our campaign in their native language and many were willing to translate for us.  Dotsub’s technology and experience provided an excellent way to enable our community to do precisely that and help make ARKYD even more accessible to the world”.

ARKYD is the first publicly accessible space telescope! It allows you to take amazing photos of space or have your photo displayed above the Earth and has a Kickstarter project to help fund the crowdsourced aspects of the telescope.

Planetary Resources is establishing a new paradigm for resource discovery and utilization that will bring the solar system into humanity’s sphere of influence. The first step is the launching a fleet of ARKYD spacecraft to identify asteroids that are ripe for further exploration.  This same capability has numerous other potential applications in education and research, including getting the world excited again about space exploration.

Dotsub is very pleased to be associated with the Planetary Resources’ ARKYD project.

Dotsub at Streaming Media East

Dotsub’s CEO, David Orban, led a panel at the recent Streaming Media East 2013 (SME 2013) in New York City. David led a group of Dotsub customers and partners in discussing how the transcribing, translating and captioning of videos has improved their business. Helping us on the panel were Tim Tyler of Coldwell Banker, Santiago Muro of WOBI and Marc Osofsky of Lionbridge.

Here is the video of the entire panel session from SME 2013.

In an article by Troy Dreier, a little of the discussion was chronicled, concentrating primarily on the point of view of Marc Osofsky, SVP and CMO for translation company Lionbridge Technologies.  Marc stated that “Companies are increasingly creating their own video studios and taking that work away from agencies. They’re creating video for marketing, training, corporate communications, and other areas. They’re getting sophisticated with green screens and other effects, and are hiring staff away from agencies. He also said he’s surprised at how quickly that entire process is happening. He also felt that “Companies then struggle with how to translate their videos for other countries.”

He continued “Traditional approaches to translating video, such as getting a professional and creating a voice over track, are “too slow and too costly”. Going with Google Translate produces subtitles cluttered with errors and leads to viewer complaints. Solutions that offer fast turnaround and low price come at varying degrees of quality. Companies may decide to go with lower quality solutions for internal use, to save money, but spend more for higher-quality customer-facing videos.”

“Some experts now believe that 20 percent of all corporate communications should be video.  Keeping up with that demand is tough: companies currently face weeks of delay when launching new products since they can’t create multi-language video fast enough to keep up with their launch cycles. One solution to getting multiple-language support quickly is to create keywords in that new language and then crowdsource the actual translation. ”

There were questions of how does the content owner know whether it is commercially beneficial to translate video into specific languages.  Other speakers suggested that content owners wait to see if there is interest from a country before investing in a separate language track for it.

There is a lot of information in this video, watch it and tell us your thoughts on the subjects raised in it.

Making friends in high places


On 12 June a private British Airways flight will take off from San Francisco with 100 top innovators, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and academics on board. Before landing in London, the hand-picked passengers will have 11 hours to work together and come up with a solution for the “misalignment of global talent”. Dotsub’s Chairman and Founder, Michael Smolens is one of those 100.

The airline explains: “Right now our world has a bit of a balance problem. People with science, technology, engineering and maths skills are needed in communities that don’t have enough of them, but other places have lots of these talented people, and not enough opportunities.

“Policy makers call it the misalignment of global talent. There’s a whole generation of brain power who aren’t getting the opportunities or partnerships they need.”

Smolens says “If there is a more important place to remove the barriers of language, I can’t think of it. The ability to share ideas seamlessly no matter where you live and work has to be the backbone of the alignment of talent and Dotsub’s philosophy will be front and center during these high altitude discussions”.

Called UnGrounded, the sky-high hackathon will see BA create an “innovative lab” at 30,000 feet and the results will be presented in the House of Lords to the London DNA (Decide Now Act) Summit right after they land.

Simon Talling-Smith, executive vice president of the Americas for BA, said: “As one of the world’s leading airlines, British Airways deeply believes in the power of face-to-face engagements to ignite new ideas, co-create and accelerate innovation.

“We are focused on how we can bring people together to affect change within global society as well as within our business.”

We will bring you some of the results of this exciting endeavor in a blog post after the event.сайтвнутренняя оптимизация сайтованонимайзер одноклассники бесплатно зайти

Remembering A Friend: Please Donate To The Ed Zad Scholarship Fund

Help to build Clare Zad’s future by donating to the Ed Zad Scholarship Fund

Clare and Ed

Ed Zad, New York City start up veteran, died on April 13, 2013 while being treated for tonsillar cancer. Ed was 54. He leaves behind two daughters, Clare and Lucy. His youngest Clare still attends high school, and our cause is to raise funds for her college scholarship. Ed’s oldest daughter Lucy recently graduated from Skidmore, and is following in Ed’s footsteps working full-time in New York’s music industry.

Effortless, loving, amiable, productive, passionate, calm, fair, principled—and most of all—immediately likeable, Ed possessed an unforgettable voice and a flare for communication. Ed Zad was a lifelong linguist and jazz guitarist. As a musician with a passion for languages, Ed was a man who can not be easily summed up in words.

As a linguist Ed started, ran and sold his family translation and dubbing business. He went on to graduate to Lionbridge and six years ago he left it to join New York City start up Dotsub. As the Director of Operations and Language Services, Ed helped to revolutionize global web video through the power of language.

As a jazz guitarist, Ed played with many contemporary jazz legends including Gato Barbieri, and frequently jammed out with the Ed Zad Trio at Paddy Reilly’s.

Why This Cause?

Ed sacrificed a lot to join Dotsub. He managed to fund his oldest daughter’s college career, but he was counting on working to fund his second daughter’s education. Choosing to play jazz guitar and build a new web company from the ground up didn’t leave Ed much room for college expenses.

Ed touched thousands of people in his life through his music and work with language. His work with video, in the music studio, and translated products will continue to live on to reach millions more.

We know that Ed’s talent and character will live on in his daughters Lucy and Clare.

He is survived by his mother Maria, his sister Laura and his beloved cat Rico.

The very best tribute to Ed Zad, our great and rare friend, will be to ensure his youngest daughter Clare can complete her college degree. Clare and Lucy are sure to have productive, creative, and warm lives just like Ed.

Please join us in our effort to raise $20,000. Any amount makes a difference.
