Breaking Language Barriers


I remember that around 2003 the NGO oneworld.tv developed a tool to allow vloggers and other contributors to their site to add subtitles to videos. They may still offer it, but that part of the site is only for members. In the meantime dotSUB has come along with some really easy to use software allowing you to subtitle a video into any language you like. It still has to be subtitled by a human, but the way to do this is straight-forward. You do have to speak both languages of course - and have some skills in subbing down the text to fit the screen. But, looking at the experiments they have been doing over at Rocketboom look impressive. Mobuzz should play around with it too.
