TED Open Translation Project

Nokia x TED Open
Translation Project


The TED Open Translation Project launched in 2009, as part of a two-year partnership I created with Nokia. 

Recognizing a real need — and an opportunity to radically open accessibility — TED developed a system to allow volunteers to translate their favorite talks into any language.

It started with 300 translations in 40 languages, created by 200 volunteer translators. Today, more than 50,000 translations have been published in 104 languages (and counting), created by more than 15,000 volunteers. 


It's one of the projects I'm proudest of, in the way a brand was able to help a global community in a tangible, sustainable way.
