Event description


Calling All TED Translators, TEDx Organizers, and TEDx Team Members!

This July, the TED Translators team is teaming up with TEDxMileHigh for an exciting TEDx/TED Translators workshop that will expand your TEDx event's audience like nothing before. By participating in the TED Translators program, your videos become accessible to deaf, hard-of hearing, and non-English speakers across the world. Non-English speakers? That's about 91% of the global population.

TED's Helene Batt will explain everything you need to know for your TEDx event - why transcribe, why translate, how to create a volunteer team, how to track your progress, and how to expand your audience. TEDxMileHigh's Helena Bowen will share about their experience transcribing 100% of their talks. In breakout workshops, we'll teach you to use Amara, the transcription & translation software. Do you need to be fluent in a foreign language to participate in the workshop? No. In fact, the first step of each translation is an English transcription. Once your talks are transcribed in English, volunteers from around the world will take it from there! If you want to take your TEDx game to the next level, this workshop is for you.

We know that Denver is a long way to travel for many of you, which is why the TEDx/TED Translators Workshop is held in conjunction with TEDxMileHigh's main event. With 2,300 in attendance over two days at Denver's beautiful Ellie Caulkins Opera House, "Point of Departure" is not to be missed! Bring your whole team! Stick around after the TED Translators Workshop on Sunday for a TEDx Unconference, where we will discuss, brainstorm, and collaborate on ideas to enhance all of our events.
