Crowd-sourced Translation

We are testing out a crowd-sourced method of translation and subtitling of our Seminar series called The first of twelve talks we are going to try this with is the Will Wright Brian Eno talk (as seen above).  We have added the full English time coded transcript, and welcome any help in translating it into other languages.  Dot Sub has a great interface that allows you to easily type in text that instantly becomes the sub-titles.

So please do try it out, and give us feedback here as comments to this post. Once we get several of these we will look at ways to localize a set of Seminar pages into various languages that we have translations for. Thank you.
