If you’re in possession of a laptop and headphones, we want YOU! … To participate in our transcribe-a-thon-a-ganza! In the spirit of vacation, sunshine, beaches, and all things summer – we at TEDxKazimierz thought: why not make ourselves useful for at least one day this month! Join us at Hubraum on 3rd June for our transcribe-a-thon!
This is your opportunity to check off a few boxes for your summer bucket list all at once – giving you more time to go back to your lazy ways for the rest of your glorious vacation. Enjoy some delicious coffee and lunch, on us. Meet some really cool people. Make yourself useful for a greater cause – namely, in spreading information and knowledge through the TEDx platform. Add “transcription skills” to what we’re sure is already a hefty toolbox of talents.
Make your mark in TEDxLand – you get to pick which talk speaks to you and help it spread around the world. Become an expert on any topic – whichever talk you choose, you’ll certainly get to know it on a whole other level.
Note you must apply for a ticket
You don’t need to have any previous transcribing or translating experience – Gosia Kinga and Krystian will conduct the worshop wiht TEDxKazimierz’s Richard and Lorenzo taking care of all the logistics and support. This informative workshop on the morning of the 3rd June, which will teach you everything you need to know about the Open Translation Project and how to tackle transcribing your chosen talk!
The only thing we ask in advance is that you fill out our simple form (so that we know what language you’ll be operating in), and that you make an account with AMARA (so that you’re all set up and ready to go on the 29th). Since the AMARA account may take a few days to get approved, this should be done by May 22nd.
While you don’t need any past transcribing/translating experience to participate, you’ll certainly be an unstoppable transcribing machine once you’ve experienced our transcribe-a-thon! You’ll be able to put your new skills towards transcribing as many talks as your heart desires, and you can do it at your own pace, convenience, and right from home.
Ready? Set? Transcribe!
10:00 to 11:30 Workshop by Gosia., Kinga and Krystian (AMARA, OTP, all the transcribing things).
