[Translators-l] Request for translation: Captions of the 2016 "Facts matter" video

In case I’d be doing something wrong: why aren’t the white subtitles
synchronized with the yellow subtitles? I feel it’s a bit disturbing,
while the video is already very dynamic and there’s many things to
follow. Can I readapt the subtitles for my translated (French) version?

Well, I really like the video, hoping it’ll make people reflect about
the role of Wikipedia in an informed world. I might use it for some
sceptical friends, to show that WMF people are able to do high quality work.

All the best and possibly happy festivities for those who have,
