TED’s Open Translation Project powered by dotSUB: Second Anniversary!

Last week was the second anniversary of the Open Translation Project’s launch – Congrats, again TED!

To date, TED’s volunteer translators have created over 18,000 translations of TEDTalks in 81 languages. For the occasion, the TED blog folks asked a few translators to tell us (in English and the language they translate in) about some of the talks they’ve worked on by filling in the sentence:

(Name of talk) is the most __________ talk I’ve translated because …

dotSUB folks were moved by many of the 10 wonderful responses which you’ll enjoy. One of our favorites:

Iva Todorova, Bulgarian translator:
Benjamin Zander on music and passion is the most inspiring talk I’ve translated because I believe the shortest way to make the world a better place is by loving what we do, and by sharing our passion with other people.”

Yes, Iva, we agree – brava!anonim-sprashivajчастота запросовскачать бесплатно point blank официальный сайт

Beet.TV Interviews dotSUB’s Founder re: TED’s Open Translation Project

It’s been two years since TED Talks enlisted fans around the globe to translate its videos into many languages through its Open Translation Project powered by dotSub, a crowd-sourced translation platform.

Today, some 20,000 videos have been translated into 88 languages by over 6,000 volunteers, says Michael Smolens, founder of New York-based dotSub.

We spoke with him earlier this week at the Streaming Media East conference in Manhattan

The platform is being used by many organizations from big global companies like Adobe to religious organizations in India, he explains.

Healthcare, naturally….

the perfect balance between health and care

“Health care should be easily accessible,” says Seth Young, Director of Web Services for Piedmont Healthcare. “So video captions for the hearing impaired is natural for us.” Seth continues, “Plus we want to be proactive about all the new government mandates for captioning.”

Piedmont Healthcare, a billion-dollar nonprofit based in Atlanta with 7,000 employees across Georgia, uses video with captions to get the word out on its websites as well as on YouTube.

“We just tag our videos and they’re done before we know it,” says Seth, referring to his use of dotSUB’s seamless integration with the Brightcove online video platform for captioning. “So easy, we don’t even think about it!”

Piedmont’s ‘Promise’ videos, are recovery stories; warm, reassuring, down-to-earth. They present a perfect balance between health and care to successfully drive traffic to the site. 

In fact, Piedmont Healthcare is increasing its commitment to video, and going a little Hollywood! A new HealthWatchMD video series / news blog will follow doctors around in dramatic CSI-like episodes featuring forensic science. A new educational website is also in the works that will feature dotSUB’s interactive transcripts beside the videos so viewers can read, search and click-thru to exactly the right video moment.

Viewership of company videos is also strong inside the company since the executive team provides quarterly updates in video too. For those that want the information in other media, Piedmont’s web team uses dotSUB’s transcripts to make up a nifty interview-style document for company wide distribution.

Gotta say, we love the new ways dotSUB customers come up with for using our technology!разработка сайтов ценаанализ рейтинга сайтаcifrolom скачать полную версию бесплатно

Tower of Babel v2.0 or How to Reach Global Audiences With Multi-lingual Video

dotSUB Social Media Week panel: (L to R) Michael Smolens, G. Gooder, Klaus Steeg, Robin Kent & Paul Farkas.

As news from Egypt’s revolution streamed across the web, and several protester videos from Cairo appeared in dotSUB’s website for translation, Michael Smolens, Founder and Chairman of dotSUB was leading a panel discussion about how to reach global audiences with multi-lingual video for Social Media Week at the Paley Center for Media / NYC.

Smolens described how global Internet and online video usage are exploding, and led the panel in illustrating how translation and subtitling of video content can increase cross-cultural communications, educational benefits and engagement opportunities for all organizations. Lively discussion focused on how new technologies promote distribution of video that’s accessible to more people around the world.

“Opportunities opened up because of new technologies,” said Klaus Steeg, Managing Director / NYC of OSHO International, describing how community translations of their thousands of hours of single-language videos were turned into an innovative revenue stream via YouTube’s soon-to-be public pay-per-view rental store.

“Traffic Math,” is how Brightcove’s G. Gooder calibrates the growing business value based on the quantity, quality, distribution and devices on which users can discover online video today. Video examples from NHL Player’s AssociationGEU.S. Army and ICANN demonstrated his points and led to further discussion of monetization possibilities to pay for it all..

Robin Kent, Founder of The Fearless Group, discussed new advertising models and an ingenious initiative to bring music fans together with their favorite bands through lyrics subtitling and translations. A charming music video sample illustrated the possibilities.

SocialTV, the concept and the startup company, were described by Paul Farkas, Collaborator-in-Residence at Watchitoo.com, as largely about the conversation around movies, TV and online video. Interactive SocialTV can add shared viewing and storytelling as well as elements of co-creation including adding subtitles and translations.

Lots of Q&A continued the conversation, so the dotSUB team knows we’ll need to present more of these sessions about global online video at other venues soon!vkhack.comраскрутка сайта казаньнакрутить лайки на аву
