Two years ago, Autodesk embraced Open Learning by releasing our learning resources with Creative Commons licensing. The Open Translation project takes this to the next level by allowing anyone to help translate video learning materials to additional languages.
This project was developed by Judy Bayne from Autodesk's Media and Entertainment group. Judy participated in Autodesk's Idea Exploration Innovation Workshop, a program run by the Research team to help employees bring their great ideas to life.
As a passionate educator, Judy says it's critical that our world-wide vision for learning requires that we reach out in many languages. To help with this, we’ve partnered with Amara, a collaborative translation platform, to add subtitles to videos.
Users can add subtitles to videos and collaborate to improve each other's translations.
