TED's mission is "ideas worth spreading", nevertheless 4.5 billion people don't speak English or not very well! That's why TED is annoncing today "The TED Open Translation Project".
It will enable thousands of volunteer translators to use subtitles to make TED available to their own communities. To do this the right way has taken a year of preparation. This is especially exciting for TEDx event organizers whose mother-tongue is not English. You can now hold a TEDx event with TEDTalks subtitled in any languages.
