The Translation-Subtitles Volunteers Team (OEMY) was founded in May 2020, amidst the covid-19 pandemic outbreak.
It consists of people all around the world, mainly in Europe.
It translates texts into various languages, although English is the main translation and transcription language, due to easiness of access to translators external to the team.
It covers the translation and subtitles needs for the content created by MeRA25 and also crucial (and time-independent) content that has not yet been translated or subtitled.
From the beginning, the Team sought out to form alliances through DiEM25 and actively processed requests from both DiEM25, MeRA25 and mέta.
It creates, maintains and updates team-specific tools for collaboration and automation of all the processes concerning transcription, timeshifting and translation.
It holds a series of live online courses, with training on the job.
It creates video series for educational purposes.
It shares knowledge within and outside DiEM25.
Would you like to be part of the Team & help spread the word by contributing to any aspect of the work, at any stage of a text or video translation in any or your languages?
