Great move by TED to initiate a translation project on its site. TED’s wealth of video resources are now slowly becoming available in a variety of languages. Their site says:
“the TED Open Translation Project brings TEDTalks beyond the English-speaking world by offering subtitles, interactive transcripts and the ability for any talk to be translated by volunteers worldwide”
The project in itself is an interesting one, translators are working to bring these resources to a wider audience for the sole reward of attribution. Oh, the power of attribution for effective knowledge sharing is not to be underestimated!
