The response was not only overwhelmingly positive, with many volunteers* jumping in to translate more than 120+ items in 12 different languages (Arabic, Bahasa, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish), but it also opened up an opportunity for OpenIDEO team member Haiyan Zhang to suggest translating OpenIDEO's intro video.
We are excited about the idea of having different people's voices, one for each line, to narrate this video. As a result, a SoundClound group was created to allow members to translate and record themselves saying those lines. And the more voices we have, the more the video will be representative of our diverse community!
We are first pushing towards a Spanish translation of the OpenIDEO video, but we are planning to translate the video into other languages as well. So feel free to chime in and add your voice overs!
*Many thanks to the very first OpenTRANSLATE volunteers who took part of this prototype: Arjan, Anne-Laure, Carlos, Avi, Ana C., Ana S., Anne, Adriana, Patricio, Vincent, Vithaloka and Tomoya Yamamoto.
