We love translations!
Remember our video “Carbon Footprint” from 2014?
You might have also seen it on the Wikipedia article page for this topic. This year the Estonian foundation “Preserving Estonian Nature” approached us, because they love our video as much as we do and produced two translations: one in Russian, and one in Estonian! But why?
They are running a climate change project for which they collect and translate good video clips about climate change to share them with Estonian people. We are extremely happy that they chose our video as part of their project! Would you like to hear what the translated videos sound like? Here they are:
But these awesome translations are not the only reason why we’re so thrilled about this. We love requests like these, because they are exactly what we envision with our work. And it’s why we share all of our videos under a Creative Commons License which allows you to edit the videos. Well, a translation is editing, right?!
We want to share free knowledge, and that means that we want everyone to understand our videos. The Estonian contribution of translations is a huge gift to us! It means that we are now able to reach even more people with our video and help them understand the importance of the topic.
And we want YOU to do the same! Wondering how exactly you can do this?
Just send us an E-Mail! You’ll receive the video files without the English voice over, and with our typical simpleshow background music. Then, you can just replace the English voice with the translation file to create your own, translated, simpleshow video! When you’re done, you share them under the same Creative Commons License, allowing other people to edit your videos as well.
Just go to our YouTube page and take a look at our videos! Found something you like? Translate it into your language and contribute to free knowledge. We’re extremely grateful for every single project!
