Need: Provide subtitles to the World Pulse video

In an effort to make our latest brand video accessible to people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and for everyone who wants to watch a video in a language that they don’t speak, World Pulse is seeking volunteers to help us subtitle our video in English and many other languages.

Help us translate and caption our video to make it accessible for everyone!

To accomplish this we would have volunteers use Amara, a free web-based tool.

Here is the link to the video on Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/52940373

If you are interested in this opportunity, please leave a comment below, or contact me through private message! We would be honored to have your support.

Interested

Dear Mr. Beck,

Greetings from Bangladesh!

I will be most interested in translating from English to Bangla.
Please let me know:
(1) the procedure
(2) the time (hours per week) that I need to devote to this
(3) deadline for project completion

Regards,
Monica

Thank you

Thank you Monica, so so sorry for my delay in getting back to you! 4.5 months, wow, that's my fault.

If you're still interested....

The instructions for how to post these translations as subtitles are available on the Amara website (I am personally not familiar, but it seems fairly straight-forward...though maybe time intensive).

The time you would devote, and the deadline are entirely up to you! We just want the video to be available to anyone and everyone.

Thank you!
