What’s A Translation Party? This is an open translation project, where we’ve teamed up with PBS’ NewsHour and are asking fans to help translate the interview above into many different languages. If you speak more than one language, read on to find out how to get involved. If you speak English only, that’s totally fine too, because we need a TON of people to tweet, like, share, blog, and embed this video anywhere you can think of.

NewsHour has embedded the video, with subtitles, on their blog: http://to.pbs.org/g7Crvq

Multilingual folks: Click the tab under the video, look to see if there are subtitles, and then click “Add New Translation”. Select a language you’re fluent in. If you get a locked message, someone else is working on it — if you wait a bit, the person should finish up and you can check out their work. Correct errors you see by clicking “Improve These Subtitles” in the subtitle tab.

How to embed: Use the code at the bottom of this page.

Want to be Next? If you are a popular video creator and would like to do a translation party with us, please email (universalsubtitles@pculture.org). Organizations that are interested in managed subtitling solutions, should also be in touch— we have a new service launching soon.
