Information Translation team to help spread the message worldwide
Hi everyone, I'm new here, having joined for this particular reason:
Seth, your latest video (Afterlife) has inspired me to help in my small way to spread your message among my friends, peers, countrymen and the rest of the world. I think your videos (Afterlife in particular) are worthy of global attention, and the only way to achieve this properly is to have youtube captions for different languages on the video. That's why I was wondering if you (or your forum users) are interested in starting a translation group for this site.
Here's what I was thinking:
  • The group would consist of two types of contributors: Translators and Captioneers
  • Translators would translate to what ever language they can and discuss translation variations among themselves
  • Captioneers(is that even a word lol) would add the captions to your youtube videos (not sure how that is done)
  • The group would need a text transcript of your video to make it easier/quicker to translate
And that's about it. What do others think? What do you think Seth? Any ideas, suggestions, 2 cents?

Nick

Hello and welcome!
Just a note, if I am not mistaken, Seth rarely frequents the forum, but great idea though.
I can help with Chinese translation if possible Smile

Hi and thanks for the welcome!

I'm glad the forum has potential volunteers for this Smile
I think I'll shoot Seth an email later if this idea gets enough support. Will need to get transcripts from him. If he doesn't have transcripts then that would mean the group needs transcribers Smile

Zinger,

Seth doesn't use the forum, but I think it would be something he would be receptive to. Definitely send him an email!

I could do transcriptions so the translation team has something to properly work with, and maybe we can also put English subtitles at the English videos for deaf people? Just an idea... Anyway, I think transcriptions might be very useful for such a project.
And if Vosur needs help with translations, I am willing to help out or proofread.
