Remember The Codebreakers: A BBC World Documentary on FOSS and Development ? Well, after many months and a few emails nicely asking for it, the Asia-Pacific Development Information Programme have sent me their original transcript for the documentary 40 minute version, licensed under a Creative Commons BY licence.
The main purpose for me was to produce subtitles in French, but there’s been interest in the Colibri list for Colombian FLOSS users to do it in spanish too, so I asked again and got the file today. It’s an easy but tedious and long job. We have to first produce an appropriate English subtitles file, then translate it – an dof course test it.
If you want to get the transcript and / or feel like helping producing an English subtitles file, please visit the subtitling project’s wiki page. Pass the word around!
Update: the links had moved, I just corrected them (as of July 12 2007)
