We’re very excited to announce the newly redesigned homepages of amara.org and pculture.org! We hope the redesign better reflects who we are, and what we have to offer. For those of you who aren’t familiar with PCF (Participatory Culture Foundation), it is Amara’s parent organization, a 501c3 non-profit dedicated to building a more open, collaborative world.
All Amara’s offerings at a glance
Now it’s much easier to browse through all of Amara’s tools and offerings — free tools and professional services, right from the header of the amara.org homepage. We used to have this separated into a site called pro.amara.org, but on the new homepage it’s all at your fingertips in case you want to upgrade your subtitling tools and capabilities.
Or, you can jump right into the free editor with a big green button:
Learn and get involved
Finding new teams to volunteer for remains as easy as before. We’ve renamed the page “Volunteer” to make it even more obvious (this used to say Community). We couldn’t be more thrilled about our new About page, which clearly shares the reasons we’re all here, and showcases our core team.
We’re currently rethinking the user interface. These are all the other pages outside of the Editor that haven’t changed yet! We want to continue to improve navigation and functionality, so they are better tailored to your needs. We’ll be reaching out to better understand your needs, goals and dreams for Amara in the upcoming months. Keep your eye on this blog for more on that soon!
I already have an Amara account – do I have to do anything differently now?
Nope – logging onto the platform is as simple as ever. Go to the Login button on the top-right corner to enter your username and password; and click on your username to access your profile, messages and teams!
Instead of the old “Subtitle Video” header item, logged in users should use that same user menu in the upper right of the page to select “Subtitle Video.” Non-logged-in users will see the big “Start Subtitling for Free” button.
You’ll also see the new header style on most amara.org pages. The remaining pages will get the updated header style in the next couple of months.
Thanks for checking out the new site and visiting our blog. We hope you enjoy the new look and organization of the homepage. Let us know what you think by posting on the forum topic “Amara and PCF have a new look – tell us what you think!”
