From March 15 to March 22, the TED Translators program held our first program-wide Review-a-thon. One hundred reviewers and Language Supervisors from 30 language communities participated in this event, helping to prioritize backlogged review assignments and accept review requests from linguists in their language communities. Together, they reviewed and published 898 sets of subtitles!
To celebrate TEDWomen 2020, we recently hosted our second annual subtitling contest to spotlight novel ideas that female speakers from around the world are sharing. The TED Translators who participated were asked to select a TED or TEDx talk given by a female speaker, and then collaborate with a reviewer or Language Coordinator to create and publish subtitles for their talk within a month.
The translators and TEDx-ers went on to plan future collaborations, and TEDxPhuMy organizer Thành Công invited the TED Translators to his event in April. To cap off the gathering, Jenny and Helena broke the news that Vietnamese is now the fourth most-viewed subtitled language on TED.com.
To honor TEDWomen 2019, we here at TED Translators recently hosted a subtitling contest to help highlight novel ideas being shared by female speakers from around the world. Each TED Translator who participated was asked to select a TED or TEDx talk given by a female speaker, and then collaborate with a reviewer or Language Coordinator (LC) in their respective language community to create and publish subtitles for their particular talk within a month. More than 150 TED Translators took part in the contest, and, without exaggeration, every entry we received was sincere and thoughtful in its own way. A huge thank-you to everybody who participated! Check out the winners and their timely and insightful submissions below.

In his interview with GameHead, the videogame web show, Wanat talks about how this new/old game is bringing everyone back together who worked on the original Xbox version, subtitled Escape from Butcher Bay. Although, he stresses, the developer has changed more than just the subtitle, with new features making sure this isn't a case of just making the old game look prettier.
As of the 15th wave, the line begins to be called only Ninjago, without the subtitle of the series. Cole and Kai are the only ninja who aren't exclusive in any set. The collectible items are the Scrolls of Forbidden Spinjitzu, Aspheera's staff, and Zane's scepter. 59ce067264
