All three videos released to-date already have English language transcriptions:


Translation is straightforward without the use of any external tools
-- just replace "en" with the language of your choice, copy in the
English transcription, and start translating.

For transcription, a very open web-based effort, as Michael points
out, is http://universalsubtitles.org/ -- dotsub.com is user-friendly
and well-established, but deeply proprietary. But at this point, we
don't need transcription, just more translation. :-) So please forward
this mail to any relevant lists and help us get more TimedText
translations. We can then import them into any of the large
distribution channels.
