TED Translators

TED Translators are volunteers who subtitle TED Talks to help big ideas crisscross languages and borders.

History

The idea of translating TED Talks came about by popular demand. Passionate viewers around the world started asking if they could translate talks in order to share them with friends and family. (Some were even sending us finished translations!) Recognizing a real need — and an opportunity to radically open accessibility — TED developed a system to allow volunteers to translate their favorite talks into any language.

The program launched in 2009, with 300 translations in 40 languages, created by 200 volunteer translators. Today, more than 120,000 translations have been published in 115 languages (and counting), created by more than 28,000 volunteers. In 2012, the program expanded to include the transcription and translation of TEDxTalks, the translation of TED-Ed lessons and the translation of content distributed by worldwide partners who help grow TED’s global footprint.

TED2019 got underway last week, and a contingent of 15 TED Translators was on the ground from the start to represent and promote TED’s international translation community. In addition to attending talks by an impressive lineup of speakers who presented their innovative ideas and visions under the conference’s theme of “Bigger Than Us”, the TED Translators were busy with a schedule full of workshops and team-building events. Stay tuned for more in-depth updates on TED Translators’ activities at TED2019.

TED Translators’ Bogotá Meetup

A few days after the TED Translators meetup in Mexico City, Jenny and Helena made their way over to Bogotá, Colombia, to attend TEDxBogotá: Resilienciaand to once more connect local TED Translators to TEDx initiatives in their city. TEDxBogotá brought together a stunning number of attendees—over 10,000!—at Bogotá’s famous Movistar Arena. The audience was treated to 10 speakerswhose talks tackled some of Colombia’s most urgent challenges while also highlighting potential brighter futures for both the country and the region in general. What’s more, the TEDxBogotá team, headed by organizer Mauricio Salazar and co-organizer Katherin Gómez, warmly welcomed and embraced TED Translators; in fact, the TEDxBogotá team screened our most recent promo video for the crowd and invited attendees to volunteer with our global project. We hope you’re as excited as we are to see lots of new translations coming out of Bogotá soon!

TED Translators’ Mexico City Meetup

TED Translators director Jenny Zurawell and deputy director Helena Batt traveled to Mexico City to link up with several TED Translators from the region and connect them to local TEDx initiatives. The translators who attended were thrilled to meet each other in person and had the chance to speak with Marcela Garcia, a TEDx organizer based in Mexico City. Their discussion focused on building and strengthening the culturally dynamic city’s TED Translators community, as well as identifying the challenges and opportunities posed by this effort. All in all, the gathering was yet another productive step in growing TED Translators’ footprint in Latin America.
